  • There is a Better WayWhile in the Courtroom, we don’t hesitate to fight for our clients. Fighting and litigation, however, can increase costs and prolong your divorce. Accordingly, it is often not necessary nor is it the best way to resolve a divorce in many cases. We use active negotiation to reach out and work toward a resolution whenever appropriate. Our custom strategy allows us to help you craft your resolution and negotiate for it, rather than let a judge decide what you get while you hope for the best.
