At Berkowitz Cook Gondring Driskell & Drobeck, LLC, we solve problems for people who are often going through one of the worst times in their lives. We know how much is at stake for each one of our clients, and we always keep that in focus.

Every client that walks through our door is taken seriously and their cases handled with the utmost care and attention. When faced with a stressful and emotional situation, you need competent and skilled representation to help you make decisions that are often overwhelming.

Individual Attention And A Carefully Tailored Strategy

The attorneys at our firm understand the importance of helping each client according to the unique challenges they encounter. Some cases are fairly straightforward, however, some cases require a more assertive and aggressive approach to reach a resolution.

No one out-prepares us. We are proud of our high attention to detail, great client communication and responsiveness to client needs.

We work closely with our clients to develop a strategy to address family law matters, including:

  • Divorce (Kansas) or dissolution of marriage (Missouri)
  • Legal separation (Missouri) and separate maintenance (Kansas)
  • Property division of complex assets
  • Spousal maintenance and spousal support
  • Custody and parenting time issues
  • Child support
  • Income determination for self-employed or business owners
  • Paternity and establishment of parental rights
  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
  • Business valuations
  • Divorces involving farm property

Alternative Dispute Resolution Services

Virtually all family law cases require mediation, most of the time it is ordered by the court. In addition, there is a process entitled "Collaborative Law" which is an alternative way to resolve a family law dispute.

Our lawyers have extensive experience in preparing and assisting clients in the mediation process. We are also able to provide advice on whether or not the collaborative process is right for your particular situation.

After The Court Order: Appeals

If you question the result in your family law case, you may be considering an appeal. Our experienced attorneys can help guide you through the appellate process. Be aware that the appeal time is limited, and you need to act quickly to preserve your issues.
