Caring attorneys who will fight for your interests

Compassionate Family Law Representation

Divorce and child custody are sensitive issues where there is a lot at stake. The family law attorneys of Brewer & Giggenbach combine compassionate counsel, business sense, negotiating skills, and extensive trial experience to protect client interests and discover workable solutions.

The firm’s family law attorneys aim for amicable resolutions, but when litigation is necessary, attorneys become aggressive trial lawyers who fight for their clients’ interests. The attorneys at Brewer & Giggenbach have substantial experience representing physicians, professionals, business owners, and other divorce clients with considerable marital assets to divide.

William Brewer’s accounting and business background has been beneficial in tax considerations and determining accurate valuations of closely-held businesses, retirement assets involving qualified domestic relations orders (QDROs), real estate, and stocks and investments. The firm’s attorneys are skilled at negotiating trade-offs to achieve equitable distribution that leaves the client in a stronger financial position.

Child Custody: West Virginia is a shared parenting state, with one parent granted primary residential custody and the other parent reasonably equal visitation. The firm’s divorce lawyers negotiate and draft parenting plans that address client needs while creating the least upheaval in a child’s life. If an agreement cannot be reached through mediation, attorneys are prepared to go to court to state the client’s case for primary or sole custody. 

Modifications: The firm represents parents in post-judgment petitions to increase or decrease child support because of a change in circumstances, to alter the parenting arrangements, or to allow relocation out of state with the children. Attorneys aggressively press the client’s case, investigating the other party’s finances and addressing situations that are not in the best interests of the child.

Visitation Rights and Paternity: Brewer & Giggenbach, PLLC represents non-custodial parents in enforcement actions, fathers seeking to establish parentage, and mothers seeking child support. Attorneys also assert the rights of grandparents who have lost access to grandchildren, such as after a divorce or death of a parent.

In addition, the firm also handles military divorces and international divorces, as well as domestic relations matters, in which one party is not a US citizen.
