It is our mission to help families rebuild their lives and become self-sustaining, contributing citizens in our communities.
LSSM has established case priorities which are reviewed on a yearly basis. The plan is developed based on input from former clients, partnering agencies, the judiciary, lawyers, and staff members. Family Law is one of our priorities.
LSSM also strives to provide holistic services to clients which address not only their legal needs, but also social service referrals and case management services. Our lawyers provide counsel, advice or full representation to clients. Many times our lawyers will identify other legal issues where we may provide assistance such as public benefits, housing, or consumer.
LSSM handles some family law matters where the situation may threaten the security or the viability of a family. LSSM may handle the following types of cases: paternity, adoption, name change, and guardianship. LSSM also handles dissolution of marriage cases where abuse is present. For more information on divorces, please see the Domestic/Sexual Violence Link. Each case is reviewed on its own legal merits for case acceptance.
