Creating Win-Win Solutions
I believe that family is a sacred institution and should be private. Our civil court system was designed to resolve contract disputes and injuries. It is ill-suited to adequately resolve disputes between members of families. Divorce and custody cases increase family drama and do this is a public forum. Unfortunately, when the only tool is a hammer every problem begins to look like a nail. Whether I am helping a divorcing couple through mediation, or advocating for a party in family court, my approach is finding common ground and discovering peaceful, win-win solutions for my clients. I am able to settle 90% of my litigation cases out of court. That is good for my clients and their children.
Areas of Practice
If you are interesting in mediating your divorce, custody, or cild support case, I am happy to assist you. Mediation is my passion because it creates win-win solutions. Both parties must be on board for mediation to work. If you are interested in mediation, I can speak to one or both of you about the process, but i cannot get into any particulars of your case without the other party present. It is a good idea to speak to the other party toe case about mediation before contacting me.
Litigation is the standard method of dealing with your divorce, custody, or support case. I will be your advocate. My motto is speak softly, but carry a big stick. I will work closely with you to build your case, from the documentary evidence, to the potential witnesses. When we prepare a case for litigation, we assume that the case will go to trial while continuously looking for ways that the parties can both walk away with something they want. I am proud to state that approximately 90% of my litigation cases settle outside of the courtroom.
