Reliable counsel provides advantages in mediation

Children are best served when parents maintain a cordial relationship. Through the structured process of mediation, couples can often set aside hostility and agree on key decisions affecting their children. Mediation can be a highly-effective tool for parents to preserve their children’s well-being and the stability of their lives during the turbulent process of divorce. Mediation takes some of the stress out of child custody conflicts and puts important child-rearing decisions in the hands of the parents rather than the court. Our attorneys meticulously develop mediation strategies that carefully guide the negotiating process toward healthy resolution.

Skilled litigation in family court

In some cases, litigation is necessary to protect a child’s best interests. This type of case may arise between two parents. In some cases, a minor guardianship may be necessary if neither of a child’s parents are able to provide appropriate care for the child. Our firm’s individualized approach to litigation will assist you with pursuing solutions that are in the best interests of the child.
