At Albin Roach, we want our clients achieve their goals in divorce in the least stressful, least costly manner possible. That could mean your attorney engages in negotiations on your behalf with your spouse's attorney.
Alternatively, you could use divorce mediation as a way to arrive at a mutually acceptable agreement about marital property division or child custody. In divorce mediation, each party is represented by his/ her own attorney, and our firm provides a third-party neutral mediator who guides the process.
Finally, if the gloves need to come off, they do. We have lawyers at the firm who aggressively represent our clients in trial court when that's the best or only option to get the results you need in your divorce or custody case.From experience, they know the tendencies of judges on particular issues.
