Comprehensive Family Law
There are times when it is virtually impossible to negotiate a divorce, child custody agreement or other family dispute due to current circumstances, past history or outright animosity.
As an experienced lawyer, I have found that some cases have to go to trial. As an experienced negotiator, I also have the flexibility and knowledge to help my family law clients reach lasting resolutions through other means.
The other party may be unable or unwilling to cooperate, or the issues may be truly irreconcilable. While the brute-force approach of court litigation may be the only viable option for some family law clients, I have learned that negotiation, family mediation and collaborative law techniques can often result in a more satisfying resolution of divorce, child custody and family support issues.
I can assist my clients through traditional settlement negotiations or collaborations between parties and their collaboratively trained attorneys.
