Collaborative law and divorce mediation — saving money and time

We adapt our legal strategies to the objectives and needs of our clients. Whether your situation calls for negotiation, mediation, full-blown litigation, or a collaborative approach, our family law attorneys have the experience and skill needed to help you achieve your goals. In mediation, our attorneys can either serve as mediators or as legal counsel.

The collaborative atmosphere characteristic of the Collins Hannafin law firm can also serve the needs of clients whose divorce or other family law problem is sufficiently complex to draw upon the focused knowledge of our other practice groups. For example, our business lawyers contribute a great deal to the negotiation and resolution of property division problems. At the same time, the advice of our family law attorneys can often help refine an estate plan or business succession agreement.

Domestic partners and dissolution of civil unions

The dissolution of same-sex marriages can present unique legal challenges, especially when dividing property or determining custody of any children adopted by the couple. Our attorneys remain at the forefront of this legal area as it continues to evolve at both the state and federal level.
