Alternative Approaches to Handling a Divorce 

  • Divorce mediation
  • Collaborative divorce

Divorce mediation

 

We are effective family law mediators, offering parties the opportunity to negotiate a divorce settlement in a structured setting through with the assistance of trained facilitator.  We serve as both mediators, and consulting attorneys to mediation.  The mediation process fosters cooperation between partners, and can remove the uncertainty and high costs associated with litigation.  

 

Collaborative Divorce

 

Collaborative Divorce is an alternative method to resolve a divorce, with the aid of attorneys, financial and child custody professionals, and even therapists, all committed to aiding in the process of resolution – without litigation.  This intensive, and effective, approach to divorce is an alternative that parties should consider.  Feel free to discuss this, and other methods of dispute resolution with us.

 

Divorce Litigation

 

Sometimes, litigation is necessary to reach a fair resolution of a family’s dispute. Through careful preparation and with a professional courtroom presence, we successfully represent clients throughout the litigation process from discovery, through trial preparation, settlement efforts and, if necessary, a trial.  Few of our cases proceed to a trial on all issues, and sometimes issues are severed and tried while others are settled. We are prepared to handle the complex  procedural aspects of your divorce, with focus and attention to detail, so that our clients obtain the most favorable outcome.
