How frequently does your firm use mediation, arbitration, or collaborative law to resolve cases?

Those going through a divorce have two options to complete their case; settlement or trial. If the case is not settled, the issues will be decided by a Judge or Commissioner. Having your case decided by a Judge or Commissioner often brings more emotional and economic strain to the divorce process. It is one of the primary goals of our office to secure the best results while limiting the emotional and economic strain of a case. As such, the divorce attorneys at Sternberg Family Law, APC make extensive efforts to resolve disputes without judicial intervention so long as the goals and needs of the client are obtainable via settlement. If those goals are not obtainable, we are well-equipped to effectively advocate for the best interests of our clients and that of their children in Court.
