Our Approach to Family Law

With broad experience only in family law, we know that divorce is not just a legal process, it’s a human experience.  As a result, we strive to make your contact with the legal system less confusing and painful.

As the go-to experts in the industry, we are who others turn to for mediation training. From over two decades of experience, we redefined the art of dispute resolution in that our approach is organic with respect to human interactions. This allows for the opening of unique pathways to resolution that other mediators don’t find. It’s not just a part of what we do; it is our core competency, and who we are.

Aside from the core question of WHETHER to divorce, we understand that the question of HOW to divorce is critical.  Because it is simply the most influential question, we start by having you answer “What Type of Family Law Process Do You Need to Experience?”.   Whether you choose mediation, collaborative divorce or simple consultation, we help you develop a case plan, so you are clear on the steps, goals, and milestones to expect along the way. As a result, you will experience a high level of clarity and communication that will ease your mind and give you a sense of control which is not typically found in working with other firms.
