Savannah Family Law: New Digs, Same Shovel

Savannah Family Law: New Digs, Same Shovel

Posted By David Purvis, Savannah Family Law Attorney || 6-Sep-2016

We recently relocated our offices in Savannah. Gone is the grand old ballroom on Broughton. We are now located at 427 E. York Street, occupying the first floor of a three story federal-style home. The new space is much better suited for our professional needs and our clients and potential clients will find that parking is much easier to come by, particularly on a Friday during peak tourist season! We are still in historic downtown Savannah and still within walking distance of the courthouse, but much more convenient for our clients on the islands or coming in off the Truman Parkway.

As our practice here in Savannah continued to grow, it became readily apparent that we needed a much better space to fill those needs. Beyond the office layout itself, we have better technology resources at the new space, including better infrastructure to support our video conferencing needs which have continued to become more global every year.

What has not changed and what has largely prompted the growth that required the need to change spaces, is our approach to family law. Contrasted with a revenue generation focus that leads many practitioners to muddy the waters so that they can increase the amount of time spent (and thus billed) on a case, we realize that long after the lawyers and judge are out of the picture, the family still continues on. I can think of little worse than a lawyer who, focused on billing, creates a situation so toxic that the former spouses cannot operate effectively as co-parents. Ours is an approach that “feels right” to everyone involved, an approach that resonates with litigants and judges alike. It’s hard to deny the reasonable, responsible approach.

It was certainly bittersweet to say goodbye to the old ballroom. Over the past three years we have built this practice in that space. Some great victories were celebrated there and some truly memorable moments occurred there. Some mornings, my car still wants to take me there! So as we close out year number four in Savannah we open year number five in new space but with the same approach to the practice of family law that brought us here. May it take you where you want to go.

Y’all come see us in our new digs!  We'll keep the coffee hot for you.
