Attorney Carl J. Ohall at TAMPA BAY LEGAL CENTER, PA understands the broad scope of divorce and family issues, and is well prepared to assist those individuals needing his services. He addresses divorce-related problems in a sensitive and creative manner, providing accessible, effective and affordable legal representation. Initially, Carl makes an effort to stabilize his client’s emotional and financial situation. This typically requires obtaining temporary court orders concerning child custody, support and the allocation of debt responsibility. Often times, a separation agreement can be negotiated. He realizes that it is often in the children’s best interest to settle the divorce, rather than have the parties continually battle in court. However, he balances that need with the overriding commitment to what his client believes to be a fair and equitable dissolution of their marriage. Carl believes that his professional obligation to his clients is to counsel, advise, make recommendations and to keep them fully informed of all relevant legal and factual information.
