Non-Adversarial Divorce Options That Fit Your Values and Your Family

Finding A Divorce Process That Works For You

Every divorce presents different situations, personalities, and challenges. Which is why we believe you deserve the right to choose a process that works for specifically you and your family. If you don’t want to have a combative court battle, we offer a variety of non-adversarial divorce options where you and your partner are guided through a process to negotiate your divorce agreement. Collaborative divorce and mediation are our preferred methods, but we also have over twenty years of trial experience if divorce litigation if necessary.

All Practice Areas

Mediation

A Framework & Impartial Party To Let You Make Your Own Decisions

The mediation process provides the structure to discuss the difficult and important issues surrounding your divorce and your family. Together, we will identify your interests and needs and those of your children and develop an agreement that you are both comfortable with.

Collaborative

Your Team Working Together For You

“The success of a Collaborative Process depends largely on the quality of the team that the attorneys put together that work in conjunction to successfully guide the clients from start to finish. We work with professionals that are not only knowledgeable but are sensitive to our clients’ needs and bring integrity to negotiation.” – Donna L. Buttler

Negotiation

Give and Take While You Keep Control

Through successful negotiation, you can resolve your divorce case on your own terms. Even when a full resolution is not obtained, often parties can resolve some conflicts, thus limiting the extent of the litigation. “Negotiation is not about figuring out who is right or wrong. It is about getting the parties involved to recognize the other party’s perspective.” – Ann K. Newman

Litigation

Going to Court As A Last Resort

Some cases are appropriate for litigation. It may be because the finances are complex, the emotions are too strong or the legal issues are unique. Whatever the reason, you want the capabilities, experience, and resources of an experienced family attorney by your side, preparing your case and maximizing your results.
