Our Clients

Mediation

Every family situation is unique, therefore we approach every client’s situation as unique.  We are experienced in litigation as well as alternative dispute resolutions—mediation, arbitration, negotiation, collaborative law, and litigation.  Using our knowledge and skills as negotiators and facilitative listeners, we offer options to reach your objectives as we protect your interests in and out of the courtroom.  Understandably, many clients would like to avoid unnecessary conflict and resolve all matters in as non-adversarial a manner as possible.  We are committed to helping you resolve legal conflicts outside the courtroom and minimizing if not eliminating the negative economic, social, and emotional consequences of an on-going legal battle.

Our Fees

We offer Flat Fees, minimum fee arrangements, and the traditional retainer fee.  We will discuss these options with you during your consultation.
