Nashville Family Law Lawyers

Welcome to our firm.

Family law solutions are as varied as the Middle Tennessee individuals and families that experience them. At Papa & Roberts, we understand that clients expect insightful, balanced legal guidance, and that every client does not fit into the same mold. We know that too often lawyers make the underlying problem worse instead of better, adding to the conflict instead of helping clients through it in a sensible way. As a result, we tailor our legal services to respond to the specific needs presented by our clients, meeting them where they are. This holistic approach to the practice of law means we consistently provide our clients with targeted, top quality legal services related to divorce, adoption, surrogacy and probate.

Our lawyers particularly excel at using innovative, out of court, settlement oriented processes with our divorce clients who find the adversarial litigation system is simply not what their family needs to help them work through their divorce in a way that meets theirs and their children’s needs – legally, emotionally, and financially.

Divorce is an arena where the litigation process can take a very difficult reality such as the decision to divorce, and turn it into an adversarial fight that can last years, cost many tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of dollars in legal fees, leaving the parties financially broke and unable to effectively co-parent in the aftermath of the divorce.

Our divorce attorneys offer clients creative alternatives to help them transition from being an intact family to a divorced family – options such as collaborative divorce, divorce mediation, and traditional negotiated settlements. Some of these processes involve using non-legal experts such as mental health professionals or financial specialists to help address the real world needs of divorcing families that are outside the professional expertise of divorce lawyers. In the end, we work best with divorce clients who see the divorce as a crisis to be navigated or a problem to be solved, and who need solid support and advice navigating those tricky waters, but are not interested in fighting through a protracted court battle.

The attorneys at Papa & Roberts, PLLC have a great deal of experience assessing clients’ legal needs, educating them about their options, and guiding them through disputes with as little stress and expense as possible. We are particularly adept at assisting divorcing parents in setting themselves up to be able to co-parent well after the divorce so that the children’s needs are addressed in a constructive way.
