I needed the honest and straight forward advice of an attorney. Your carefully advised me of my options and then represented me in a very professional and aggressive manner, resulting in the best outcome I could have hoped for in my situation.

He had uncanny insight in knowing what information had to be sought after. He never allowed the other party to waste my time or money. His diligence, persistence and thoroughness not only won me my case, but more than I ever expected.

Your excellent legal representation saved Josephs life. People often joke about lawyers and refer to them in cruel ways. Its too bad because you are such an exceptional human being. Thank you!

The Benefits of Divorce Mediation

Less stress and confrontation — Mediation allows divorcing partners to gain closure without vilifying each other. Divorce is seen as a problem to fix, not a contest to “one-up” or “outfox” each other.

Less impact on the children — Mediating leaves the relationship you have as parents intact, focusing on workable arrangements for the future rather than badmouthing each other’s parenting skills.

More control — The outcome of divorce mediation is more predictable than a solution imposed by a court.

Less time and expense — Litigation drains your family’s resources and drags the process out with months between court dates. Depending on the complexity of your estate and custody issues, mediation can resolve matters in as few as four sessions.

Learn if Mediation Works For You

Mediation does require setting aside emotions and being open to compromise. It also requires preparation — you will not have independent legal counsel during sessions.
