Alternative Dispute Resolution
There is no such thing as a typical divorce. For each client, this is his or her personal life-changing event.
Some people cannot avoid a divorce trial. However, if you wish to take advantage of a less litigious, more peaceful method of dispute resolution, please inquire about the use of mediation or collaborative law practices. I am trained in using alternative dispute resolution methods to assist clients who wish to keep things as amiable (and least expensive) as possible.
