Divorce Mediation

Why is mediation a popular choice in resolving divorce issues? Parties choose mediation because it is:

  • Efficient
  • Less Expensive
  • Confidential
  • Amicable
  • A Voluntary Out of Court Process

Call our mediation department at (206) 624-6271 to set up a pre-mediation conference.

Family Law Consultation and Representation

Our family law attorneys have extensive experience guiding parties through mediation, traditional litigation, and less traditional formats such as FasTrack Divorce, Cooperative, or a Collaborative law processes. During your initial consultation a family law attorney will gather all the important details and help assess your goals and options going forward.

We are strong proponents of alternative dispute resolution and legal solutions that include mediation, Cooperative and Collaborative law. Whenever possible, we encourage our clients to amicably and respectfully resolve their family law disputes. Nonetheless, we understand that in certain cases, litigation is the only method of resolution and our family law attorneys will not hesitate to advocate strongly on your behalf in court.

  • Child Support
  • Committed Intimate Relationships
  • Complex and Simple Asset/Debt Distribution
