If you have found our firm, you are likely looking for a different kind of law and mediation practice. You want an attorney who will be your coach, teacher and guide – not your mouthpiece or gladiator. You want an attorney who thinks holistically, can deeply empathize with your circumstances and who draws on this compassion to help you achieve resolution that helps your family thrive – not tears your family apart.
If you are considering divorce, separation from your partner, or need changes made to a prior agreement, you are likely looking for a better way to address and resolve these issues than litigation – a way that can prevent your children from being placed in the middle of the conflict and will help avoid you having to spend tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees and countless emotional currency to resolve your issues. Or you may be trying to preserve your marriage or partnership, even though you and your partner have tried counseling and are still struggling. Most importantly, you want to proceed mindfully and respectfully, recognizing that how you choose to resolve your family conflict will have a lasting impact on you and your family.
If you are considering using a known or unknown donor or surrogate to create a family, or if you are LGBTQ or poly and are exploring bringing children into your life, you may be seeking answers to questions about how the law and parenthood intersect, how your rights and responsibilities are defined, or how to ensure that any family you create is protected under the law. You want to work with a mediator or attorney who is sensitive to your unique family constellation and needs, who understands the beauty of conscious family creation, and celebrates parenthood in all of its many flavors.
You are smart. You are loving. You know your family. You have the ability to make decisions that are in your and your family’s best interests. You are ready to ask the hard questions about what you really want for yourself and your family, and are willing to dig deep and see what is realistic to fight for, and what you can let go.
If the above resonates with you or you have any questions or concerns that you think might be addressed well through holistic lawyering or mediation, then call us for a free telephone consultation. You can decide whether working with our firm feels like a “good fit” and we can decide whether we are the firm that can best help you. If our firm is not the right firm to address your unique circumstances, we can make referrals to other wonderful practitioners who may be better able to assist you.
