If you are going through a divorce or dealing with another family legal issue, you need a lawyer who will take the time to listen to your needs, address your concerns and help you achieve your personal goals during this trying time. Here at Andrews & Sanders Law Offices, we understand that when your family is facing a stressful or devastating legal issue, worrying about who will assist you is the last thing you need.

At Andrews & Sanders Law Offices in Savannah, we advise and represent family law clients with empathy, compassion and complete confidentiality.

Family law is one of the most sensitive areas of law, and we understand that going to a harsh attorney who spits out information with no concern for your well-being is not your best course of action. We are here for you, and we care.

We have particular experience with the application of military law in divorce and other family law cases that may apply to you and those you are related to, by either law or blood.

Seeking Positive Outcomes By Exploring All Avenues

Like many other legal controversies, most family law cases are settled out of court, though most agreements require court approval. There are several reasons why out-of-court resolution is particularly well-suited to divorce and family law matters, much more so than other legal issues.

Most people going through divorce want to get past a difficult time and get their cases resolved so they can move on. Settlement through mediation is typically faster and less expensive than going to trial, as well as less controversial within most families. This opportunity also gives the family a chance to resolve matters among themselves, without adding insult to injury by summoning a family law attorney to bring the matter to court. If mediation is possible, it is advised as a first approach to your family legal issue.

Attorney Richard Sanders is a licensed third-party mediator who also represents individual clients in mediation.
