Our Philosophy

At Plog & Stein, we take each divorce, custody, or child support case very seriously. From our perspective, no other area of law comes with the same type of lasting, individual financial and emotional ramifications which arise in the family law arena. At Plog & Stein, we believe that the divorce and custody process do not need to be acrimonious or full of the drama people often hear about from friends, or see in movies or on television shows. Though our hope is to get matters settled for our clients in a favorable and efficient fashion, some cases require court trials and full blown litigation. The Colorado divorce and custody attorney at Plog & Stein are well equipped to fight for our clients in either scenario.

Beyond family law cases arising along normal time frames, the Denver divorce and custody attorneys at Plog & Stein are also available to deal with emergency custody or visitation issues and can generally get clients into the office quickly to deal with the problem. Likewise, we also deal with more complex legal issues, such as interstate child custody and jurisdictional matters. Our attorneys strive to keep abreast of changes in the law, procedure, and the court system in an effort to better serve you, the client.

In addition to formal representation, Plog & Stein offers unbundled legal services, which can include a consultation sessions for purposes of obtaining legal knowledge or advice, assistance with settlement negotiations or mediation on an as-needed basis, help with drafting and putting together documents for a client, or pre-martial agreements. These types of services can also be provided on a short notice and can be dealt with on an hourly or flat fee basis, depending on the work required.

Our Philosophy

Though our firm is comprised of multiple attorneys, we all share common, core philosophies on how cases should be handled for our customers. At Plog & Stein, we believe that there are two key components to helping our family law clients: honesty and logic. An important aspect of the attorney-client relationship is honesty. Clients need an attorney who is willing to give them an honest assessment of the case. This includes providing information about probable outcomes and counseling as to what is important to the court. Anyone can tell a client what he or she wants to hear. We strive to assist our clients by giving them a realistic analysis of their cases so that they can make better, informed decisions about how to proceed.

Logic comes into play in any case as well. We believe that each case should be approached from a logical, analytical standpoint and that details matter. In every case, our attorneys strive to assess the case as a whole from a cost/benefit standpoint. Though your case is not a game, any case can be likened to a chess match. Each move on the board matters. As such, the goal is to make the right move at the right time in the process of trying to reach your goals.

In recognition of the fact that not everyone is made of money, particularly in these trying economic times, we also try to approach each case in a financially reasonable and efficient manner. In light of such, we offer competitive retainer rates. Additionally, we seek to cut out fluff or waste and get right down to the core issues in your case. We recognize that the process can get expensive, but believe efficiency can also be imported into the practice of family law without sacrificing on the quality of representation. With multiple attorneys in the firm, we are able to offer our Colorado family law clients varying hourly rates and retainers in line with your budget. Though the end goal is what ultimately matters, we believe the cost in getting there is important as well.

The divorce or custody process can be filled with many emotions and challenges for the client as he or she goes through the process. Our hope is to ease your concerns and deal with them in a caring and productive manner. The end goal is what ultimately matters and we are ready to be both your advocates and guides to get you there. At Plog & Stein, we are ready to assist you through these tough and uncertain times.
