When you are considering who to hire to represent you in a divorce, paternity, modification, or other family law matter, you want an attorney who is experienced and knowledgeable specifically in the area of family law. The vast majority of Mr. Fredrick’s practice has always been in the area of family law. His broad experience of acting as a Guardian Ad Litem (GAL) for children, as well as a litigator for parents and grandparents, gives him a broad perspective when analyzing and litigating your case. As an experienced litigator, it is his job to help you achieve the goals you have with regard to your dispute. He has successfully litigated family law cases all the way to the Missouri Supreme Court and back. Each case is unique. In many cases, it makes sense for the parties to settle their issues, which is less stressful emotionally and financially, and much easier on the children. However, if your case is not a candidate for settlement, he will aggressively pursue your goals and objectives, and guide you through the litigation process.
In addition to courtroom experience, Mr. Fredrick enjoys teaching other lawyers about family law at various Continuing Legal Education classes at both the county and state levels.
As a JAG officer in the United States Army Reserves, he knows military law as it pertains to custody, child support, division of property and debt issues, and other family law issues. Regardless of whether it is the division of retired pay, PX/commissary benefits, the Survivor Benefit Plan, or simply understanding that the unique life of a servicemember does not mean that you are unfit to be the primary residential parent – he will zealously represent his fellow servicemembers. He has clients who are stationed CONUS and OCONUS, and he is very comfortable working with clients by phone, fax, and email, so regardless of your duty station, he can help you.
If the parties have been able to come to an agreement on all issues before the litigation begins, there is a one-time flat fee charge, so you don’t have to worry about how many phone calls are made, how long office visits last, or how long it takes to prepare the documents. If there is no agreement and the case is contested, then a retainer is required. Call to schedule an appointment today.Contact Us for More Information
