Our Approach To Divorce Settlements
Our firm is known for its focus on pretrial divorce settlements, but every client’s situation is unique. Mediation can be a less contentious alternative to a trial, where the terms of your divorce may be decided by a judge. However, it is not the right path to settlement for all couples in all situations.
Our lawyers can review your case and point out where you may encounter conflict in your divorce, and where you and your spouse may be able to find agreement. They also can answer detailed questions about the pros and cons of using mediation or settlement conferences to finalize your divorce.
