I hired Cynthia about 4 years ago to handle my divorce/custody issues. She provided excellent guidance throughout the process. She prepared excellent responses and listened to my concerns. She stayed calm about everything and offered realistic advice. She did not sugar-coat anything and I feel I went into everything knowing my options. I am a rather non-assertive person and she was very assertive yet respectful and I knew she would get me the best result possible. I also have a friend that she represented on a case and he was extremely happy with her services as well.

Divorce mediation, sometimes known as Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) can help you to maintain control over the time and expense of dissolving your marriage. Since there is no trial, the time frame for mediation is set by you as opposed to waiting on a trial date and being slowed down by a court calendar. In many cases, clients are often left more satisfied by the mediation process and the agreement reached is easier to enforce since it was arrived at together. In a mediated divorce, the divorce attorney acts as a neutral third party who tries to coach the couple in arriving at a legal mutual agreement for a divorce settlement. As long as you are confident your relationship with your spouse can endure open and honest communication, we strongly encourage mediation as a way to keep the time and expense associated with a divorce to a minimum. Contact our office for a free case consultation to see if mediation may be the answer for you.
If a relationship has deteriorated to the point where communication is impossible, we will assist you in protecting your rights and your assets during a contested divorce. We will work to ensure that you do not lose your home and vehicle as part of a settlement. We know how emotionally difficult a traditional divorce can be, especially for a couple’s children. We do everything we can to insulate our clients’ loved ones from the fallout of a divorce and resolve issues of child support and custody swiftly. It is our goal to make sure that the best interests of you and your children become a legal reality when it comes to your divorce settlement.
