Michelle N. Ogborne

Ogborne Law, PLC is a Scottsdale based family law firm with a commitment to providing the whole family compassionate support during challenging times.

Over the years we’ve seen the adversarial approach to family law, particularly divorce, destroy families and ruin relationships between children and their parents. It’s heart breaking. Nobody wins but the lawyers.

That’s why we know that even though ending your marriage and protecting your assets may be important to you, there’s something even more important. Protecting your kids from the pain of divorce.

Collaborative divorce – End your marriage without ending your family. Collaborative divorce focuses on creating outcomes where you win, your spouse wins, and more importantly, your kids win.

Mediation – A better way to handle disputes, our mediation process allows you and your spouse to come to the table and build an outcome you both can live with.

Michelle Ogborne, speaks regularly on the topic of collaborative divorce and is a recognized family mediator and attorney. She serves on the Board of Best Legal Choices and Maricopa County Association of Family Mediators. Michelle is also an active member of the Arizona Association for Conflict Resolution, the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals, and the Family Law and Dispute Resolution Sections of the American Bar Association and State Bar of Arizona.

If you want to work with a law firm that takes a holistic approach to dealing with family law issues and works to get results while protecting relationships, you should contact Ogborne Law today.
