Your Divorce Options

Litigation

Litigation refers to resolving matters through the courts and negotiating settlements based on what a court is likely to do. An important part of the process is helping you define your goals and helping plan the process for working toward those goals.

Collaboration

Collaborative divorce is a nonadversarial way for divorce attorneys to work together to help their respective clients resolve their divorce issues. In a collaborative process, we seek to help the parties handle their conflict without causing further damage to the relationship.

Mediation

Mediation is a process in which opposing parties attempt to reach an agreement outside of court with the help of a neutral third-party facilitator. This can be a good option for couples who have less need for professional advice in their negotiations.

How We Work

Litigation

We work to de-escalate conflict rather than create it, because unneeded legal brawling accomplishes little while costing a great deal. As experienced divorce attorneys, we work to efficiently negotiate a positive result for you. In court, we prefer to focus on solutions rather than personal attacks.

Tailored Negotiations

We believe that when we can reach carefully crafted negotiated agreements, with solutions tailored to your specific needs and circumstances, the agreements will be more durable, you will be happier with the results, and your needs and the needs of your children will be better met.

Collaboration

In addition to traditional representation, we often use the collaborative approach, working with a professional team to address the emotional, financial, parenting, and legal needs of both parties to develop creative solutions to tough issues. We also provide mediation if that is a better fit for the client.
