Divorce and MEDIATION CONSULTING

Our firm provides divorce consulting services in many areas. Whether you are thinking of getting a divorce but don't know what the process looks like, or if you are going through divorce mediation with your partner, we will not only assist you in making and reaching your goals, but we will coach you through the challenges you’ll face in a divorce by advising you on how to handle a difficult spouse and minimize stress. Since your mediator cannot legally advise you of your rights during a mediation, we will be there to provide that vital legal advice so that you can make the right decisions at the right time.

LIMITED SCOPE REPRESENTATION

If you are dealing with post-judgment enforcement or modification of support, custody, or other issues in regard to your divorce or paternity matter, we offer limited scope services to our clients who are looking for focused representation. This type of service will limit the fees that will be incurred, and will allow you the flexibility in resolving some issues on your own as well as with the help of an attorney. 

Prenuptial Agreements and Premarital Financial Consulting

We specialize in prenuptial agreement planning, drafting and negotiation. We understand the negotiation of a prenuptial agreement can be a sensitive issue, and we are dedicated to handling your agreement with the compassion and care it deserves. We believe that a prenuptial agreement is a vital tool in planning for your marriage - not only divorce. 

Through our customized premarital financial consulting process, we will prepare an agreement that not only provides proper protection of your separate assets, but more importantly, planning for your marriage with your partner while maintaining the respect in your relationship.

FIRM PHILOSOPHY

We Believe…

Preparing for your marriage is more important than planning your wedding. Our prenuptial agreements and premarital financial planning consulting services are a catalyst, empowering couples through vital yet uncomfortable conversations, to establish a foundation of transparent communication and create a blueprint for successfully navigating financial decisions as a couple.

Having the right team makes a difference. You shouldn’t have to go through your divorce alone. Our consulting and limited scope services support clients to meet their objectives effectively and efficiently, whether litigation, mediation or self-representation ends up being the right path for you.

You can have a successful divorce, even if you didn’t have a successful marriage. There is non-monetary value in moving on with your life after a divorce – and that’s not going to show up on the community balance sheet. Our holistic approach to family matters considers both the financial and emotional costs of separation, so you can make choices that serve you and your family best.

We Value…

Your time, money and quality of life. We advise you based on your rights, your priorities and your best options, not what will result in more billable hours for us.

Trust and communication. Our approach to family law is grounded in compassion, communication and common sense. We are your partner and are committed to transparency and honesty every step of the way. 

Impact. Whether you are starting or ending your marriage, it’s important to stay focused on your goals and your partner’s goals to reach an agreement that accommodates your family as effectively and efficiently as possible. Our guidance provides strategy and impact, rather than mere reaction.
