At the Law Office of Meredith G. Lewis, we help you create a resolution that is unique to your family. We guide you through the process with our expert knowledge and compassion.
In our practice we focus on Mediation and Collaborative Divorce, where you are 100% included in every aspect of your case. Everyone at our firm knows that managing family issues is difficult and we recognize that our clients are likely to experience anxiety and fear of the unknown. Attorneys are available to speak with our clients directly and are honest when we provide a legal opinion. We work hard to explain the legal process in order to demystify a client's case.
We also recognize that clients have different values and priorities, and that each case is different. Our firm prides itself on listening to each client's concerns, evaluating their needs and then suggesting an optimal course of action within the parameters of the law. Our goal is to obtain the result you want by using the most efficient and effective legal means.
Our firm believes the best approach to solving family law issues is through different methods of Alternate Dispute Resolution, such as Mediation, Negotiation or by using the Collaborative Approach. Family law is unique in that people on opposite sides of a case often have to forge an on-going relationship for years after their case has ended. Clients who have children do not have the luxury of not seeing their former spouse again. The various methods of Alternate Dispute Resolution are usually more cost effective than litigation and help preserve family relationships. The majority of our cases are settled outside of court. If a case unfortunately does fall out of Mediation or Negotiation, our team is there to advocate for a client in court.
Given the legal and emotional complexity of family law issues, most people realize that the best course of action is for them to choose to consult with an experienced and knowledgeable family law attorney to advise them and advocate on their behalf. This assures them all legal options are explored and understood, and allows people to focus on their emotional healing without having to be concerned with all of the technicalities involved in their legal matter.
