While mediation is a wonderful process choice for solving various family matters, it is important that you consult with a mediation-friendly lawyer along the way. Because your mediator is neutral, she or he cannot represent you, nor can she or he give you legal advice.
As your consulting attorney, we will help you assess your situation, explain the law as it pertains to you, and help you make informed decisions, serving as your partner as you go through the mediation process.
Some people wish to wait until they have a written agreement in hand before having an attorney review it. We will speak with you about your particular situation, review the agreement, explain it to you so that you understand each of its provisions, and help you understand how it might have been tailored to fit your particular situation. We will make sure you understand what you are giving up and what you are getting, and your rights and obligations under this agreement.
Joy’s experience and compassion can help guide you through a difficult process.
