Tammy Glick’s domestic relations law practice requires patience, experience and creativity to help clients make decisions that will positively impact their lives and the lives of their children. Clients retain Tammy to handle hot-button issues such as pre-nuptial agreements, dissolution of marriage, paternity, modification of child custody, child support, spousal maintenance, adoptions, mediation and orders of protection for children as well as adults.
Tammy frequently takes on the role of counselor to her clients, advising them on their financial future and other big-picture issues.
“A good attorney can help clients resolve their legal issues,” she said. “A great attorney can help them successfully deal with their legal issues while they’re also reorganizing their homes, families and futures. Friends and family members may not know how to help with finances, estate planning and other issues. I can call on my domestic law experience to help them connect to the right resources.”
Tammy formerly served as Platte County’s prosecuting attorney, and her experience in that role gives her an edge.
“In many cases I’ve dealt with, especially in my role as a prosecutor, there were allegations of domestic or child abuse. My experience as a prosecutor gives insight into how to advise clients who may be facing these issues as part of divorce proceedings and helps me work for the benefit of the process and the child.”
Prior to Levy Craig, Tammy operated her own law practice and served as Platte County prosecuting attorney. Before that, her experience included internships with the Platte County Prosecuting Attorney and Jackson County Prosecuting Attorney offices.
First and only woman to serve as Platte County Prosecutor.
Represented a client in a complicated dissolution where millions of dollars in assets had been hidden, requiring complex and tedious discovery techniques to locate and account for the marital property to be divided by the court.
Mediated a same-sex couple’s child custody, support and division of property issues so they could terminate their relationship and continue to parent their children in a state where their marriage was not recognized in the law.
Successfully represented a client in a modification that resulted in client’s attaining sole custody of children after days of testimony on how the other party’s manipulation of the joint custody order was causing psychological harm to the children.
