Tin Fulton Walker & Owen, PLLC

My practice philosophy is grounded in my core belief that the courtroom is no place for families.  Litigation is destructive to families; it takes what is already a difficult time and escalates it further.  I also believe that the experience of litigation thereafter negatively impacts peoples’ ability to effectively co-parent for the benefit of their children.  It is possible to resolve your differences with your spouse or co-parent without ever stepping foot inside a courtroom, and that should be the goal, because only then will you be able to reach a durable and lasting resolution.  I truly believe this.

I have practiced family law exclusively my entire career because I am passionate about it.  I find it rewarding to help my clients through what is no doubt one of the most difficult times in life.  I strive to do so in a way that keeps the future in mind because there will come a time when the lawyers are no longer involved and the parties return to life as usual.  I hope you do not have to go through divorce, but if you do, the collaborative process offers a way to go about it with dignity and respect.
