Dublin Family Law Attorney

The Role of Psychology in Divorce
Our founding attorney, Edward F. Whipps, has spent a great deal of time in the in-depth study of psychology. Mr. Whipps is past president of the Ohio Board of Psychology and works with a network of psychologists to help clients understand and effectively deal with the emotional impact of a divorce. We are able to structure legal approaches that meet our clients' psychological needs while also understanding the psychological problems of others involved in the process, including the spouse, children and even the opposing attorney, as well as the assigned judge and magistrate.
Serious psychological issues are often at the heart of highly contested divorces and custody disputes. Unless these issues are recognized and understood, significant mistakes can easily be made and unnecessary time and expense is often incurred. When significant psychological issues are recognized and understood, effective strategy and planning improves the potential for positive results and significantly helps clients feel secure with the process.
