OUR PHILOSOPHY:Divorce done differently...We envision a world where the divorce process is not adversarial, financially confusing, emotionally devastating, or unreasonably costly. We believe that by providing thorough written analysis, recommended solutions, advice on negotiation, and a shoulder to lean on, we can turn fear and uncertainty into peace and confidence at an affordable price. We are committed to a kinder, gentler divorce process for all involved.
