S.L. Pitts is a Seattle and Los Angeles-based boutique family law firm focusing on complex family law matters. The attorneys at S.L. Pitts deliver positive results for clients facing difficult family law issues including: high-asset and complex property division; high-conflict custody disputes; and interstate or international divorces. The firm is dedicated to pursuing our client’s interests, but we do so with respect for all parties involved.
The conduct of family law litigation casts a long shadow into the future. Unlike other civil litigants, spouses are often tied to one another for years or even for life due to ongoing financial obligations or children. Unnecessary conflict in the initial divorce often condemns both parties to years of additional litigation related to enforcement and other post-divorce matters.
Our understanding of this fact shapes the advice we give and our demeanor in negotiations and in court. Our practice emphasizes taking a long view, with a focus on formulating and securing lasting remedies for clients that keep them out of the courthouse whenever possible. This not only reduces the financial cost for clients in the long run; perhaps more importantly, it also reduces the emotional stress that necessarily attends family law litigation.
While we zealously pursue a client’s interest in all forums, we conduct the representation respectfully and without unnecessary, disparaging comments. Couples faced with a family law issue usually bring enough conflict to the table on their own – the last thing they need is for attorneys to increase the conflict through unhelpful posturing or mudslinging.
