Summary

South Florida has been my home for nearly all my life. I grew up in North Broward / South Palm Beach County, with two single parents who divorced when I was four. People often asked me whether having divorced parents was difficult, and my answer was always “no” because they made the transition relatively seamless. As a child, I got to go on two vacations, have two bedrooms, and spend lots of quality time with both of my parents, albeit separately. It was the best decision my parents made for themselves, and for me.

I got my start in divorce as a family lawyer in West Palm Beach from my mom, Bernice Alden Dillman, who practiced divorce and family law for over thirty years in Boca Raton. I often witnessed clients walk into her office on the first day, distraught, insecure, and upset, and watched them blossom into being more confident, secure, and their knowing that a better life was ahead. Hard decisions now sometimes are the best decisions for the long term. Watching my mom guide clients through this transformation helped me realize that I, too, wanted to help clients grow and have a better life.

In all cases, as a family lawyer in West Palm Beach and Wellington, my goal is to obtain a favorable result for clients as quickly and efficiently as possible so they can move on to the life they desire and deserve to be living. I strongly believe in resolution focused and strategic litigation (which means that I will counsel a client to litigate when it needs to be done, for example to align an unruly spouse more with legal reality when they are taking a ridiculous position) but I truly believe that resolving the matter out of court is usually in the best interest of the clients, not only financially, but also psychologically.
