A divorce does not have to be destructive.  In many cases parties can work together with the assistance of a neutral mediator to arrive at a full agreement on all issues. 
Mediation streamlines the divorce process and helps the parties to avoid the stress and cost of litigation.  For more information please visit the "What is Mediation" page. 

We offer a free initial consultation so that the parties can decide whether or not the mediation or arbitration process is the right option for them. 

                         COLLABORATIVE LAW

In a Collaborative Law Divorce, clients work with a team of specially trained professionals including collaborative attorneys, a coach (typically trained in the mental health field) and/or neutral financial experts who assist the parties with the goal of settling the case outside of court.  The Collaborative Law process is ideal for clients who desire to have a private mediated divorce but need the additional support of specially trained settlement-focused attorneys and neutral experts to be involved in the process. For more information on Collaborative Law please visit 


If you decide to hire an attorney to represent you through your divorce you now have the option of hiring one to work for you on a full or limited basis, known as "Limited Assistance Representation (LAR)".  LAR empowers you to handle the divorce process yourself, but still work with an experienced divorce attorney on an hourly or as needed basis.  For more information please visit the "Limited Assistance (LAR)" page.
