What follows is a vetted list of family attorneys, which means that we either know them well, have worked with them, or have heard more than one person we trust sing their praises. They include traditional litigating attorneys, as well as attorneys who practice mediation and collaborative law.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1484341115422{margin-right: 50px !important;margin-left: 50px !important;}”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1484340846010{margin-bottom: -20px !important;}”]LITIGATORS
Hiring a traditional divorce attorney, or litigator, does not mean that you are going to end up in court. In fact, over 90% of divorce cases settle outside of court. But there are reasons that people choose to hire an attorney who CAN go to court if necessary: these include a significant imbalance of assets or financial knowledge, a highly complicated financial picture,  situations where mental illness is involved, or simply a relational power imbalance (ie. one spouse feels bullied by the other).[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][ultimate_exp_section title=”Eleanor Alter” background_color=”#519872″ cnt_bg_color=”#519872″][vc_column_text]Alter Wolff & Foley, LLP

Mediation, as used in law, is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), a way of resolving disputes between two or more parties with concrete effects. Typically, a third party, the mediator, assists the parties to negotiate a settlement. Disputants may mediate disputes in a variety of domains, such as commercial, legal, diplomatic, workplace, community and family matters.

The term “mediation” broadly refers to any instance in which a third party helps others reach agreement. More specifically, mediation has a structure, timetable and dynamics that “ordinary” negotiation lacks. The process is private and confidential, possibly enforced by law. Participation is typically voluntary. The mediator acts as a neutral third party and facilitates rather than directs the process.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][ultimate_exp_section title=”Barry Berkman” background_color=”#519872″ cnt_bg_color=”#e0cb41″][vc_column_text]Mediation & Collaborative Law
