Courtney and Mills
On September 13, 2006, despite the fact that it was Friday the 13th, Courtney & Mills, LLC opened its doors for business. Our firm consists of two attorneys—Ann Mills and Chad Courtney, along with three support staff. In the 10+ years since that day, we have chosen to remain a small firm so that we can form a personal relationship with you. This allows us to have a better understanding of your needs.
From us, you can expect an atmosphere where you will be educated about the law as it applies to your case. We provide options so you understand the paths your case may take. We also provide resolutions you can live with, while knowing sometimes the only resolution is to allow a judge to decide the issues.
Judges in divorce cases say this often--”No one is happy after a trial.” During a divorce case, you are asking one person to listen to the facts of your case over the course of a few hours and make decisions that impact the rest of your life. There are never juries in family law--just one judge making all the decisions. The judge always does her or his best to make fair and just decisions based on the evidence.
It is the judge’s job to view matters objectively. While a judge may agree with you on some points, she or he may disagree with you elsewhere. Rarely does anyone get everything they want in a divorce trial.
This is why it’s best to have an agreed divorce. If you and your spouse can agree to all the terms of the divorce beforehand, then there is no need to go to trial. You may have to compromise here and there for your spouse, but both of you get to decide the outcome. You are not leaving it up to a third-party who may give you little or nothing you want in the divorce.
