Ms. Loftus offers a concierge approach to her clients. She begins with the assumption that each case calls for special handling, since no two family law cases are alike. After the initial consultation, she works with her clients closely, to provide them with a basic understanding of Florida family law proceedings. Ms. Loftus and the client are then able to work together to ensure that there are articulated, agreed-upon, legitimate and realistic goals. After the goals are established, Ms. Loftus provides her clients with a range of options designed to meet those objectives. She reviews the advantages and disadvantages of each option and provides her recommendation. Ms. Loftus believes strongly in this approach as the best means of seeing that the client is empowered and fully-informed, and that if significant sums are to be spent on legal fees, the client understands why and knows ahead of time that significant fees will be incurred. Because of the vicissitudes inherent in the family law court system, Ms. Loftus believes it is in her clients’ interests to resolve family law issues if possible outside of the courtroom. No lawyer can guarantee what results might be obtained after a hearing or trial before the court. Should efforts at a reasonable mediation be unsuccessful, however, Ms. Loftus works with clients to see that their legal objectives are pursued in court through motion practice and trial. At all times, Ms. Loftus presents her clients’ positions in a vigorous, thorough manner designed to achieve success without sacrificing professionalism.
