Creative solutions for family transitions.

Legal Representation

As a domestic relations attorney, Valerie Botter represents clients by providing legal advice, negotiating settlements, and litigating cases in court, approaching family transitions with the goal of proceeding amicably and respectfully. When negotiations fail, however, Valerie is a zealous advocate in court. She works with clients who get along well with their spouses and need guidance on legal issues, and represents individuals who have abusive, intractable, and selfish partners. Valerie has tried numerous cases and settled many more. Despite the number of divorce and other family law matters that she has handled, Valerie considers each and every new case to be unique and deserving of individual attention.

Valerie always searches for a creative solution. Sometimes this involves seeking Court orders and other times it involves long talks with her client or opposing counsel to develop fair settlement offers that take into consideration the needs of all concerned parties. At all times, Valerie is child-focused, and encourages her clients to keep their children’s needs at the forefront when considering various legal options.
