Claimed Lawyer ProfileQ&ASocial MediaResponsive Law

Ms. Sirlin has practiced family law for almost 27 years. Having worked with a Certified Family Law Specialist, she began drafting Family Law Appeals and complex motions during 2003. She has a unique perspective regarding family law, in that she experienced a very contentious "custody battle" as a child, which spanned many years. Ms. Sirlin's practice consists of some family law litigation (trials) but her main focus consists of family law post-trial motions and family law appeals. It is important to know that the judge's orders may not be the end of the line.

Ms. Sirlin is also trained as a Family Law Mediator and received her Certification of Training in Collaborative Divorce.

While all of her current practice consists of family law matters, Ms. Sirlin has substantial experience in criminal defense law, as well.

Ms. Sirlin maintains a caseload which ensures each client has direct access to an attorney at all times.

While Ms. Sirlin has primary responsibility for all client matters, when needed, other attorneys and legal assistants are available. All attorney time spent doing legal assistant tasks are billed at a legal assistant rate.

Ms. Sirlin truly cares about her clients and their families and always puts what is best for them above any financial and/or "business" considerations of her career.

Her mottos are that, "it is best to live a life you can be proud of, do a job you love and help others." Helping others gives meaning and purpose to one's life.

It is extremely common that a potential client arrives to meet Ms. Sirlin, noticeably anxious and overwhelmed and it is extremely common for them to leave noticeably relaxed and reassured.

Her fees are below the average and median fees for an attorney with over 25 year's experience in the Phoenix metropolitan area.

Was impressed with myself after receiving "A" grade in Charles Ares' classes! I did it because it was a welcome challenge. Also enjoyed Kenny Hegland's contract law during year 1. Met quality students and so many in our class became successful attorneys.

Legal Answers
Q. Is it a good idea to sell our house before we start a divorce? Or do we fill for divorce and then sell the house?
A: I would go ahead and sell prior to filing for divorce. That way, you will both have funds available (as opposed to bills) and you will not have ownership of the house as a possible problem if either of you want to buy a residence during the divorce process. I suggest you contact an experienced family law attorney to assist you, even if you are proceeding with a mediation.
Q. Is there still such thing as final decision making in AZ? Ex filed a request to modify child support & parenting time
A: Yes, there is still the option of one parent having final decision-making authority. I would really need to know more about your situation. Any parent can make allegations and attempt to change the orders, but many requirements must be met. I recommend contacting an experienced family law attorney to assist you.
Q. In a divorce can I have my husband op out of dipping into my retirement account
A: In any divorce, the parties can reach an equitable settlement which can be ordered by the court, so the answer to your question is, "yes."
