Brooklyn Family Lawyer

What is a Family Lawyer?  (Is to say what is a family?)

 

Your family’s attorney is the quintessential Counselor at Law, a title most people have heard or seen written somewhere. A good Family Lawyer provides counseling and guidance from birth to death and is there to handle all of the legal details that pertain to the needs of your family, not just those matters related to Family Law such as Divorce, Child Custody, Child Support, Paternity, etc. The role of a Family Lawyer is often expanded to include Business Law, Elder Law, Wills & Estates – virtually any and every legal need your family may encounter. Your Family Lawyer is prepared to discuss your overall personal concerns and provide legal advice as you plan and develop your personal and professional life. This kind of an attorney is sometimes maintained on a monthly or annual retainer in addition to incidental financial requirements, depending upon how heavily you intend to rely upon your attorney beyond a single legal issue.

 

Often a Family Lawyer will advise and guide you through issues as disparate as managing benefits or insurance related to an aging parent’s disability or the special education needs of your children, including preparing specialized trusts to pay for your loved ones’ needs after you pass away.

 

Advocacy at both ends of life’s spectrum can be part of the role of a Family Lawyer. For example, when they will be there if you need help getting the local school district to comply with or create an educational plan for your child or when an elder family member’s needs are are not being met by Medicare or Medicaid. Your family’s attorney may also prepare your Will.  Indeed, your family’s attorney can be a lifelong shepherd, helping you implement the values and objectives you hold sacred.

 

The Law Offices of Mary Katherine Brown maintains a traditional view of the provision of legal services; they are “counselors” at law, or about the law. A distinctive and detailed understanding of the law allows your family attorney to provide an effective strategy to the solution of your family’s needs. They are alerted to the way the world looks from inside a courtroom; and if you trust your attorney, you will learn what is legally relevant, and what is legal white noise. An attorney who is astute has the ability to understand the emotional, financial, and pragmatic effect of the legal action to your personal life – but prioritizes skillfully attacking the legal problem to protect your position, your financial assets, and the integrity of your family.

 

Naturally we use the latest in technology to support your needs and your case; but in a way that allows us to spend less time on the production of paperwork and more time understanding the particulars of your case and counseling you about your legal issues.

I could not be happier to have had Mary Katherine Brown prepare my Last Will and Testament, living will, Health care proxy and other documents. I truly appreciated her accessibility and patience. What I thought would be a confusing and uncomfortable task, she made into an easily understandable process. I can tell she is very knowledgeable and I trust her guidance.

A very professional and responsive attorney you want to hire for your legal needs!

Mary Katherine Brown was a delight to work with these past months. I had an issue come up for Brooklyn Family Court with my ex-husband on a support matter and wanted to retain an attorney instead of handling on my own as in the past. I researched some reviews and found Ms. Brown. She is very organized in her thoughts and plans, as well as, very professional in the court environment. I relayed my concerns on some particular issues…

Excellent experience

I had an excellent experience using Mary Katherine for a prenuptial agreement. She was great every step of the way – understanding what my goals were for the agreement, answering my questions and explaining different components of the agreement and working expeditiously to get the agreement signed. I would definitely recommend Mary Katherine, and would work with her again.

Mary Katherine Brown made me feel comfortable and safe in a time when I had no clue what the future would bring. I still don’t but it is nice to have an empathetic ear and someone who isn’t just jumping towards conclusions. She really listened to me and that felt great.

I feel so incredibly lucky to have found Ms. Brown to help me develop a post nup during a very difficult period of life. She is so knowledgeable, thorough and thoughtful. I always felt heard and that I was working with someone who sincerely had my best interests in mind. The bonus is that she also happens to be compassionate, empathetic and seems to be a genuinely good person. She kept me calm and remained dedicated throughout many pivots. Her staff is also great- everyone is consistently responsive and professional.

Case Successfully Resolved

I hired Ms Brown to resolve a rather complicated child relocation case. She’s been very knowledgeable, reassuring and supportive throughout the whole ordeal. I really wish I would have met her before the attorney that I hired in the first place, who almost ruined my case. Thank you, Ms Brown, I hope to never need your help again, but would love to stay in touch.

Miss Brown represented me in several cases while clearly explaining the situations and presenting all of my available options to me before giving her recommended plan of action.
