The focus of our family law services is mediation.  We have extensive experience in this area. We provide legal representation in limited uncontested matters,  such as preparing and filing desk-order divorces. 

Elder Law and Elder Mediation

Elder law refers to the practice of law applied to issues affecting older adults. Our elder law services include drafting wills, powers of attorneys and representation agreements. We also provide advice on issues related to the care of an elderly family member.

Elder mediation refers to a process where a neutral third party helps resolve a dispute between an older adult and their family members or caregivers.

We also offer an innovative service called Facilitated Planning Meetings. During these meetings we help families discuss wills and estates or advanced planning matters, such as creating a plan in case of a future illness or disability of a family member. Planning now can protect interests and relationships later.
