Divorce Mediation
These practice areas are merely our focus areas-Connecticut attorneys do not "specialize" in anything. However, Attorney Wolf and Attorney Shore are both well-versed and experienced in the areas of law in which they focus.
Wolf & Shore, LLC is dedicated to protecting your interests and will take a proactive approach to your divorce mediation. Mediation is generally a more amicable approach to a divorce matter and parties that want to resolve their matter outside of a courtroom seem to enjoy the less confrontational setting.

In mediation, a neutral party (the mediator) takes the reigns on the negotiation process and helps the parties to reach a mutual resolution. In general, neither person will get everything they want through a mediation; that is why the concept of compromise is key to a successful process. The mentality behind the mediation process is that both parties can take "ownership" in the ultimate outcome (hopefully an agreement). If the parties are willing to work together to come to a mutually beneficial resolution, the mediation technique will work well and parties usually find that they are satisfied with their agreement because they helped create it.

The attorneys at Wolf & Shore, LLC can serve as a mediator between the two parties or as outside/private counsel for a party participating in divorce mediation.

We understand that each individual case is unique, and our goal is to ensure that our clients understand the legal process, comprehend their options, and are kept appraised of their case throughout its duration.
