Doing Divorce Differently

Family is massively important to Attorney Schouten – he considers himself a father and husband before anything else – so he loves getting to help other families get through the worst thing many of them have ever gone through. The type and quality of family law representation a person has can have dramatic and lasting effects on a family.

The biggest way Walter’s experience helps benefit clients is in knowing where to focus his efforts. If he knows that what the client wants to do is probably a losing battle, he can save their money and time by redirecting his efforts to a strategy that has a higher likelihood of success. He also knows many clients feel more at ease in knowing what to expect with the process, which of course comes with experience.

Walter Schouten prides himself on being:

  • Reliable and trustworthy: If he says he’s going to do something, he does it.
  • Responsive: Walter tries to respond to every client email or phone call within one business day. He also makes himself available after hours, on weekends, and via text message.
  • Level-headed: Many people think they need a lawyer like the kinds of blowhards they see on TV. The truth is, most judges take a party more seriously when their attorney is calm, put together, and prepared. Also, you don’t hire Walter to have him tell you how right you are after an argument with your soon-to-be-ex-spouse. You hire him to keep you calm and objective so that the overall case does not get compromised.
  • Knowledgeable: Walter graduated at the top of his law school and has a thorough understanding of the family code and rules of procedure and evidence.
