Hari K Sathappan

Areas of Expertise

As an associate at the Law Office of Anthony W. Greco, Hari Sathappan’s  practice focuses on family law, including the areas of divorce, dissolution, custody, post-decree modification, termination of spousal support, child support modification, grandparent’s rights, and appeals.

Hari’s cases are primarily high income, high asset, and involve high conflict. Hari finds that success is best achieved by building cases with the thought of appeal in mind from the very first meeting. This means developing case law, through thorough research, and evidence, through thorough discovery. By creating this solid foundation, Hari’s clients are put in a position of strength during negotiations and are able to, hopefully, resolve their cases in their favor without the expenses associated with a full trial. Even if settlement is not an option, this foundation greatly improves the chances of success at trial and beyond.

In family law, we recognize that the results of a case have repercussions that can last a lifetime. Child-related orders, including custody, visitation, and child support, are all modifiable through the child’s emancipation. Hari Sathappan believes that educating clients on how to deal with and communicate with an ex, in a manner that helps them avoid subsequent rounds of litigation, or puts them in a position where a second round of litigation will begin in their favor is just as important as building and winning an initial case.

This method of handling cases is time and labor intensive as well as emotionally draining, but Hari believes that going all in is necessary to help his client’s achieve their goals. In family law cases, your children, livelihood, and happiness is at stake and there is nothing more important.
