Out-Of-Court Options In Family Law

At our firm, we believe in helping families to resolve their own disputes by agreement. We call this “consensual dispute resolution”. And it offers the client the best opportunity to have a say on the final outcome. Our preference for consensual dispute resolution comes from a depth of wisdom gained from years of practice in family law.

Through our alternative dispute resolution services, we offer several effective options for resolution of divorce, parenting and other family disputes that can be less expensive, less time consuming and less stressful than traditional family court litigation. Our services include mediation, Collaborative Process and traditional out-of-court settlement negotiation.

Choosing a path outside of court means you can work to guide your family in a direction appropriate for them. Stay in control of what happens by negotiating and resolving the issues outside of the court process.
