Choosing to file for divorce is never an easy decision but we can make it less difficult by putting you in charge.¬†People often think that filing for divorce always means that the case will be contentious and end up in court. Sometimes that is true and when it is, we’ve been to court and we aren’t afraid to go back. However, there are alternatives that might work well for you, too. We are experienced in mediation and collaborative law. If your case can be resolved without a trial we won’t push you into one. Getting divorced is an emotional and difficult time for everyone but with the help of an experienced attorney you can start to put your life back together and move forward.
