Welcome to Montford Family Law
Formerly operating as the Ehrmann Law Office, Montford Family Law is the practice of Jacob Ehrmann and Alex Gomes. Located in downtown Asheville, Montford Family Law focuses exclusively on issues regarding family law. We operate as a unified legal team and we are committed to representing our clients to the best of our collective ability. Further, we consider representing clients in their time of need an honor and a privilege.
Jacob Ehrmann and Alex Gomes are NC Board Certified Specialists in Family Law. This means that we have completed additional education requirements and proficiency standards to specialize in issues of divorce, child custody and support, property settlement, alimony, and all aspects of family law. Our newest associate attorney, Delia Ledesma, is fluent in Spanish. If you are seeking legal assistance in matters of family law, we invite you to inquire about our reputation in your community. We represent clients throughout Western North Carolina.
Even an amicable divorce or separation can be extremely difficult for the parties involved. The difficulties surrounding a separation can be compounded by a client’s lack of understanding of the law and its process. Consequently, Montford Family Law emphasizes client education, throughout our representation, to provide our clients a clear context in which to make critical decisions that will affect not only our clients’ individual best interests, but also the best interests of their respective families as well.
Whether a client’s issues are resolved by private agreement between the parties or by an order of the court, our office firmly believes that there is no substitute for proper preparation of our clients’ cases. Our clients’ situations are individually investigated, analyzed, and prepared for an equitable settlement. We encourage collaboration and mediation to reach settlement; however, if it becomes necessary, we have the experience and tenacity required to expertly litigate your case in the court system. Throughout our process, each client is fully involved with the development of his or her case plan, and remains promptly informed on the frequently changing status of his or her case.
Clients should expect to be represented to the best of our collective ability in a polite and candid manner. Further, clients should expect that our office will treat all opposing parties, as well as their attorneys, in a similar professional manner.
