Explore Our Legal Services

Mediation is a process for people seeking non-confrontational and private alternative resolution on issues like: child custody, post-judgement, an entire divorce, registered domestic partnership, pet custody, etc. It is done with guidance and help from a neutral, experienced mediator.
Negotiated Settlement services typically apply to situations where the parties reach agreements between themselves with the assistance of their attorneys. This is done in the privacy of a conference room and outside of a public courtroom.
Litigation Services are for when the parties and their lawyers are unable to bring resolution to their issues for various reasons, the case must be managed by a judge. This is what is known as a “litigated divorce”. Even when a divorce is litigated there may remain options for settlement out of court. It is also true that the case may need to go to trial to be resolved.
Collaborative Divorce is a divorce method in which clients resolve their settlement outside of court with a team of specialists around the negotiating table. The essence of Collaborative Divorce is to provide a new way for a divorcing couple to work as a team with trained professionals to resolve disputes respectfully without going to court.
Pre-nups / Post-nups Services are for people who enter into pre-nuptial agreements to pre-plan the distribution of their estate upon death or divorce before marrying vs. allowing the law of the state they live in to govern the distributions in those situations. Whereas, post-nuptials are entered into after the parties have been married with a similar intention.
