Mr. Field uses the hands-on approach to his litigated matters, personally handling and closely supervising all aspects of his cases from the initial conference to the drafting of pleadings, pre-trial discovery, motions, trial preparation, the trial and defending or prosecuting appeals. He is keenly aware of the emotional turmoil experienced by the matrimonial client during a difficult time of life, particularly where there are children of the troubled marriage. While vigorously advocating his client's interests, he realizes that the best result for all, particularly the children, is a negotiated settlement. Thus, after throughly conducting discovery of the assets and income of the marriage and learning of the best interests of the children, he employs his best efforts to resolve the case to avoid the trauma and costs of a trial, potential appeals and the costs attendant thereto.
