Do You Need Mediation?

Before hiring a divorce attorney, many people seek to solve their conflict through mediation. Mediation is the process where parties meet privately with a trained mediator who guides them as they discuss their divorce or family disagreements.

The mediator offers support and guidance for the parties to reach their own solutions for their family. The mediator does not make decisions for the parties. When seeking an attorney for mediation, it is important to consider their reputation for integrity and their knowledge of the process.
