Protecting Client Rights for More Than 50 Years
Family Law Overview
Conflict resolution - equity and dignity
At the law offices of Katz, Manka, Ltd. we appreciate that except for the death of a spouse or loved one, the emotions surrounding the possible dissolution of a marriage are some of the most devastating you will ever encounter.
We also know that many times working through highly charged issues without the help of objective, experienced legal counsel can lead to bad outcomes and more problems.
You need objective, compassionate and experienced advice, and likely strong legal advocacy, on a broad range of issues including such critical things as:
Identification and equitable division of all real property and financial assets
Child custody and visitation (a “parenting plan”)
Child support and alimony
While our firm excels at achieving a fair and equitable financial result, we never lose sight of the goal of allowing both parties to walk away from the process with:
Prospects for a brighter financial and personal future
A firm with 50 years of experience helping Minnesotans
For more than 50 years, the lawyers of Katz, Manka, Ltd. have established a reputation in Minnesota for achieving equitable and reasoned outcomes for those with contentious family law issues through:
Preparation - putting in the time and effort needed to identify all facts required to protect children and fairly and equitably identify and value assets
Excelling in cases involving complex financial issues, such as those arising from the ownership of family businesses
Applying the firm’s collective extensive knowledge and resources zealously for each of our clients, regardless of their financial means
Sensitivity and civility matter
Our attorneys have backgrounds in general psychology and child psychology. They truly are sensitive to the difficult issues needed to protect children’s best interests and to preserving your ongoing relationships with your children.
While we are zealous advocates in the courtroom, our goal is to try to resolve, where possible, the disputes arising through the breakdown of a marriage with civility and dignity. Based on our reputation, other Twin Cities-area law firms frequently refer clients to us, particularly those involved in complex divorces.
As stated above, our goal is to reach a fair and amicable settlement for our clients with full appreciation for the fact that in family law matters, each family member matters as well.
