Mediation, Collaborative Divorce, Separation Agreements, and Appeals
You have options when it comes to your separation and divorce. Will you become involved in an adversarial process like litigation? Or would you and your spouse prefer to resolve your issues with the help of compassionate and experienced professionals?
Will you air the dirty laundry of your marriage in public? Or do you want to work through matters privately?
Will your separation leave lasting emotional scars on your children? Or will you and your spouse protect your children by working together as coparents?
Mediation and the collaborative process offer a healthy way for spouses to separate and divorce and for families to resolve conflicts with grace and dignity. We provide a safe environment where you can discuss practical solutions without the confrontation, expense, and stress of going to court. We'll help you divide assets and liabilities fairly, create appropriate parenting plans, and establish separate, independent new lives.

Wherever you are in the process, we'll meet you there. Separation and divorce bring up a lot of emotions. We'll help you move forward one step at a time. Our style is low-key, non-confrontational, and facilitative. We work in short but intensive sessions to give each participant time to process information and to make smart decisions. We are patient and tireless in pursuit of solutions that will benefit all parties.
Along the way, you'll have access to our network of subject-matter experts, including divorce financial analysts, therapists, realtors, mortgage loan officers, appraisers, pension valuation experts, insurance agents, and child psychologists. These professionals are available to help educate you and expand the options available to you. We also work with a small group of trusted attorneys who are supportive of mediation.
OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES
- We are accessible and responsive to our clients.
- We view our clients' circumstances holistically.
- We empower our clients to address their needs and interests, rather than engaging in gamesmanship and positional bargaining, when exploring solutions to conflict and negotiating agreements.
- Private, out-of-court resolution of disputes is almost always preferable to litigation.
- Children should be protected to the maximum extent possible from physical, mental, and emotional harm and hardship resulting from their parents' decision to separate and divorce.
