Our mission is to make your life and future better, as quickly and cost-effectively as we can. Our founder, Spencer T. White, is a father of two children and draws upon his background as an attorney, business owner, mortgage broker, contracts manager, high-technology engineer and farm owner in representing clients. That diverse professional experience enhances his ability to relate to clients and understand their needs so that he can provide the best possible service.
Trustworthy representation throughout the area from initial filing to post-judgment proceedings
No matter what stage of the legal process your case is in, you benefit from a compassionate and knowledgeable advocate. Clients choose our firm to represent them because we provide:
- Carefully planned strategy — In a free consultation, Mr. White takes the time to understand your situation and goals and explain how the law applies to them. He can then develop an individualized strategy to achieve them.
- Skilled legal representation — We understand family law issues can be emotionally charged and difficult. Our goal is to handle your case professionally and efficiently and limit stress, uncertainty and cost whenever possible.
- Settlement negotiating — Family law is unique in that parties to a lawsuit share an intimate knowledge of the other party’s strengths, weaknesses and assets. And if children are involved, the parties will continue to have a future relationship. Mr. White draws on his experience and his understanding of your goals to prepare you for negotiations and help you obtain the best possible result.
Our firm is committed to helping you, no matter what domestic legal issue you are facing.
Skilled advocacy for all areas of family law in Minnesota
We represent clients throughout the area in all types of family law cases:
- Divorce — Whether you have been married twenty days or twenty years, divorce is difficult. We represent clients in both contested and uncontested divorce as well as divorce mediation, which is less emotionally taxing and offers more privacy than litigation.
- Child custody — We will help you maintain your rights as a parent and achieve custody solutions that are in your children’s best interests, making sure you are allowed a meaningful role as a mother or father in your children’s lives.
- Child support — In Minnesota, child support is determined by state guidelines that factor in the income of both parents and other relevant special circumstances. We can work with you to modify your existing child support order, or draft or review proposed child support orders and ensure calculations are accurate.
- Equitable distribution of property — By state law, marital property must be divided equitably in divorce, though that does not necessarily mean equally. We will ensure that an accurate accounting of your property and assets is available to the court so your division of assets is fair.
- Alimony — In Minnesota, the laws governing alimony, or spousal support, may allow for short-term, long-term or rehabilitative maintenance when the situation warrants. Whether you are paying support or receiving it, we will ensure your situation is clearly understood to ensure a fair outcome.
In addition to representing clients in family law matters, we also provide estate planning assistance for clients by drafting wills and trusts to protect their legacy.
