A Law Firm for the 21st Century Client

Learn More About What Sets Us Apart

Whether you’re looking to petition for primary custody or just want to talk about your options, our attorneys have the skills and experience you need to resolve your case both quickly and effectively.

We take a different approach to legal services by focusing on ways we can solve the most common problems people have with law firms:

Problem: It's hard to get in touch with my attorney.

At Tingen & Williams, we’ve made a commitment to always respond to client contacts within one business day.

When you’re already dealing with the stress of an important legal matter, quick and consistent communication is very important.

Whether you want a simple update or you want to better understand the strategy in your case, our attorneys and staff will keep you in the loop at every step of your case.

Problem: I've heard about attorneys that will promise one thing and then deliver another, so I'm worried about what to expect.

No attorney can guarantee a specific result in your case.

Instead, we aim to help clients understand every aspect of their case before moving forward.

There’s no such thing as a “sure-thing” in the legal world, but we’ll do our best to make sure you know what to expect before you step into the courtroom.

Problem: I never know what's going on in my case, and my attorney never explains anything.

We believe that an informed client is a happy client.

From our firm’s extensive Knowledge Base to our client-focused consultation structure, we’ve developed our business around making sure our clients understand the ins and outs of their specific legal matter.

Problem: Attorneys are too expensive, and I'm worried that I won't understand where my money is going.

We believe in giving everyone access to justice, and we try to reflect this ideal in every aspect of our practice.

For this reason, we’ve taken steps to make the legal process as affordable and accessible as possible for all of our clients.

While it’s no secret that some types of cases can get expensive quickly, our attorneys ensure you only pay for the services you need.

Further, our transparent billing practices can help you know ahead of time exactly where your money is going.

The answer to this question will also largely depend on the specifics of your child custody matter.

For example, you may be able to complete an uncontested child custody petition in as little as a few weeks. Meanwhile, if the other parent chooses to contest your plan the case could take up to a year or more to finish in full.

Put simply, the more issues there are to resolve, the longer your case will likely take.

For this reason, it’s usually wise to ask your attorney for a ball-park estimate of your case’s length when you go in for your first consultation.
