Committed & Passionate Representation

Hough Law Firm takes a different approach to family law: We view clients not just as individuals, but as part of a broader family dynamic. Indeed, when two people get married, it’s not just their lives joined, but two families – and their cultures, traditions and dysfunctions – that merge. Thus, when divorce happens, it affects more than just the couple; when children are involved, a family still exists – just in separate homes. Ignoring that truth leads to short-sighted divorce negotiations that foster quarreling, disrespect and abuse.

We believe that our clients thrive after divorce because we work hard to preserve family relationships. We believe that when a divorce is handled with respect and integrity, parties on both sides can rebuild their lives in a positive and productive way. It’s a perspective borne out of our founder’s experience in state agencies for mental health and social services; Attorney Roya Hough saw firsthand how post-divorce hostility harms parents and children.

To the greatest extent possible, we will pursue cooperation and diplomacy. We will remain flexible and open-minded, we will be courteous, and we will look for collaborative solutions. If those efforts fail, we will be prepared to fight doggedly for your interests in court. We will never tolerate deceit, emotional blackmail or abusive behavior of any kind.
