At Harris & Hunt, P.A., helping clients go through one of the most difficult times in their lives is a privilege that we take personally. Our lawyers practice exclusively in the area of marital and family law, providing representation to clients throughout the Tampa, St. Petersburg and surrounding areas for divorce, paternity, prenuptial agreements and other actions. Our firm’s goal is to protect our client’s most important aspects of their life: their financial security, their children (including their parenting relationships) and their future.
Each member of our firm has extensive experience and special training in traditional litigation as well as collaborative divorce – a non-adversarial process where parties respectfully and privately resolve the issues of their divorce. This process assists parties with reaching a mutually satisfactory settlement by focusing on each spouse’s ultimate goals, rather than allowing the parties to become entrenched in positions (as commonly occurs in litigated cases).
In a collaborative divorce, the parties have a “collaborative team” to help them reach settlement. Each spouse has the support, protection, and guidance of his or her own collaborative attorney, as well as the assistance of two jointly retained neutral professionals (experts). The team, both collectively and individually, is dedicated to reaching a settlement that considers the values and goals of both parties.
Although there are many advantages to collaborative divorce, the process is not right for everyone. Our attorneys understand that divorce is not one-size-fits-all and that traditional litigation might be necessary. Our firm is made up of attorneys with impressive credentials, such as Florida Bar Board Certification in Marital and Family Law, fellowship in the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, inclusion in Florida SuperLawyers, Best Lawyers®, and many others, with extensive experience in the courtroom to handle any family law issue that you may have.
