Taking Control Of Your Situation: Choosing Process Options
The courtroom setting often fosters a hostile and confrontational environment that can leave a lasting impression of anger, guilt and bitterness long after the matter is settled or decided by the court. While not appropriate for every family, alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods like family mediation or Collaborative Divorce offers families a way to resolve their differences in a more constructive, kinder way.
We encourage families going through divorce or dealing with conflict to consider mediation or Collaborative Divorce to resolve their issues. At the same time, we know these methods are not right for everyone, and we will focus on finding the best resolution for your family.
A Firm Committed To Cooperation
We will work to keep decision making in your families’ hands, reaching agreements that fit your specific situation. Whether you are dividing property, determining custody, parenting time, child support, or spousal support, we will guide you through the tough decisions and help you find the best fit for you and your family.
Mediation allows all parties to participate in the decision-making process. We offer services as neutral mediators, assisting both parties (with or without attorneys present) to have discussions and explore options for resolving each issue. Alternatively, our attorneys can represent and advise one party during and/or between mediation sessions.
Collaborative Divorce is another specific process you can choose to resolve your divorce outside of court. Using a multidisciplinary team approach, each party works with an attorney trained in this process, along with other trained professionals such as a divorce coach, financial specialist, or a child specialist.
Limited Scope Representation
We offer a variety of ways we can work together such as traditional full scope attorney representation, limited scope attorney representation, or neutral mediator. Limited scope attorney representation allows us to tailor our range of services to meet your specific needs.

Furthermore, many of our clients find the mediation and Collaborative Divorce processes to be more cost-effective, providing families greater control over how and when you move forward, and addressing the family’s overall wellbeing so your family can move forward in a different but healthier way.
We understand that not all divorce or family law disputes can be resolved amicably. In those cases where mediation or Collaborative Divorce are not valid options for you, we will assertively protect your rights and interests in court.
