Alternative Approaches to Child Custody
We are effective lawyers who advocate strongly for our clients in court when necessary. However, we have found that alternative methods, like mediation, often yield better parenting arrangements. Therefore, we frequently use our years of mediation and collaborative law experience to settle child custody and visitation issues.
The best interests of your children are of paramount importance when deciding matters of custody and parenting time. These alternative methods commonly serve those interests better.
Attorneys Nancy Segore-Freshman and Louise McGlynn both have extensive experience working with the children of divorce. They bring the experience of having acted as AMCs (attorney-minor child) and GALs (guardian ad litem) on behalf of minor children.
