Collaborative Law & Mediation Services

Collaborative law is a reasonable, cost-effective approach to divorce based on three principles: a pledge to reach a stable and fair legal agreement without going to court; an honest exchange of information by both spouses, and a solution that takes into account the highest priorities of both spouses and children.

Our Collaborative Law attorneys work with clients to find innovative and creative solutions to all aspects of divorce, allowing them to keep control of the decisions leading to an out-of-court settlement. Separated spouses, with the assistance of specially trained lawyers, negotiate their issues in a controlled, safe and respectful setting.

Divorce mediation is a confidential and informal process that resolves the issues of equitable distribution of assets, child support, custody, and visitation without the high cost of litigation. Unlike arbitration, the mediator does not act as a judge, but is free to participate in the discussion to help both parties agree on a fair result.
