Do you want your San Diego divorce attorney to be a shark or a dolphin?
When searching for a San Diego divorce lawyer, your legal team is an extension of you. Therefore, your legal team should match your style and choice of family law process. Shawn Weber has a seasoned and efficient team to give you the legal support you need. Shawn uses his unique “Dolphin Lawyering” philosophy, which analogizes the lawyer to a dolphin instead of the more popular stereotype of a shark. As opposed to a shark who mindlessly devours whatever fish crosses its path, a dolphin is smarter in how it goes about its business.
The dolphin lawyering approach reveals hidden options for settlement, preserves the long-term interest of the family, and empowers individual clients leading to a high settlement success rate. With Shawn’s approach, you can get a divorce while preserving the nest egg and protecting your kids.
Credentials are a no brainer. However, style and approach that match you and your unique situation is something to really explore. If you’d rather have a dolphin than a shark, the Weber Dispute Resolution team may be what you are looking for.
