Hoofbeatz goes above and beyond just riding lessons. The HoofbeatZ USA program develops confident, empathetic, well-educated horsemen capable of excelling in any future horse-related discipline. We achieve this goal through the use of our patented, structured program that educates horse enthusiasts on the ground as well as in the saddle. Students are immersed in true horsemanship skills and learn how to communicate in a language innate to horses.
We guide our family law case strategy with every unique client by ensuring the client is able to start their next chapter.
We understand legal costs are a burden, and they almost always arrive at the most difficult times in our lives. We pursued legal careers because of a strong desire to help others, and because others helped us along the way. We offer a variety of payment options including flat fee agreements, payment plans, and more.
Unlike many firms, we aren't chasing the next billable hour. In fact, contrary to the industry standards, we don't charge for telephone and email communication with our clients. Our focus is on helping our clients through some of the toughest challenges in their lives whether it is a divorce, custody modification, or planning for the future, so we want you to get the information you need when you need it!
As someone with three special-needs children that has been through family court, I understand the challenges. As a current practitioner, I do not want any of my clients to go through what I experienced. --Colleen Contreras, Founder of Contreras Family Law
