Our Philosophy

Although Plog & Stein, P.C. is comprised of multiple attorneys, we all share common, core philosophies on how cases should be handled for our customers. We believe that the key components to helping our family law clients: honesty, strategy, and logic. 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.

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. This includes our attorneys readily assessing each aspect of a case, anticipating potential outcomes or reactions from the other side (or court), and planning on how to best work towards the client’s needs, in light of all facts and circumstances. Our experienced attorneys employ strategy when negotiating on behalf of clients, or when picking experts in a case. Likewise, part of our overall strategy is to be thoroughly prepared for the final divorce or custody hearing. Preparation matters and can be the difference between effectively litigating an issue, or not. We are seasoned trial attorneys and know what it takes to effectively litigate for our clients when the time comes. Also tied into the strategies we employ is good attorney/client communication. With good communication comes a clear understanding of the directives and objectives by all involved, working together as a team.

Finally, 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. We want to make sure that the steps we take with each case make sense and are designed to lead towards a client’s end goals and best interests. In any divorce or custody case emotions will run high. When normal human feelings get coupled with the reality that a party going through a divorce or custody battle is engaged in a life changing process, it’s easy for people to lose sight of the big picture. Our attorneys do what they can to help clients understand what things will look like at the end of a case. Taking comfort in knowing you are well represented allows you, the client, to focus on the relevant issues with a clear head.

Though there is no clear formula to managing a divorce, custody, or child support case, we believe that sticking to core management ideals has greatly benefited our family law clients over the years.

At the end of the day he was able to produce a settlement that was fair to both parties.
I highly recommend Stephen Plog for anyone in need of a top notch domestic relations attorney. After a 27 year marriage, Stephen represented me in a complicated and sometimes bitter divorce with many unique challenges. At the end of the day he was able to produce a settlement that was fair to both parties but limited my alimony payments to only 3 years. He is smart, cuts to the chase, knows the court system in the Denver metropolitan area and can be trusted to get his clients the best possible settlement.
