Who We Are
Billings Law provides you with superior legal representation
B illings Law prides itself on the quality of communication and compassion for its clients. We treat our clients with honesty, empathy, and integrity, while fiercely advocating for their best interests. Our firm handles family law and probate matters, by far two of the most personal areas of law. Our law office offers focused and personal representation that is unmatched by what a larger firm can offer.
Unlike other firms who attempt to be a “one stop shop” for all areas of the law, Patricia Billings focuses solely on family law and probate law.
Family law and probate law deal with issues that involve more than just legal processes. They involve major life transitions with many complexities. Many strong emotions (e.g., fear, sadness, anxiety, anger) emerge and can often make it hard for clients to function at their most rational levels. Billings Law is there to help its clients navigate through this difficult process and find clarity amidst this chaos. We make sure that our clients understand their rights and responsibilities so that they can operate from a position of knowledge and confidence. We are particularly proud of our emphasis on client communication and satisfaction. When a client chooses to have Patricia Billings as an attorney, he or she can rest easy that our team will work tirelessly to achieve the desired legal outcome.
