Divorce

Litigation, And Alternative Ways to Resolve Family Disputes

Attorney Kellman is a seasoned and savvy litigator, with a wealth of experience and a stellar track record of courtroom success when handling divorces in a traditional litigation model.

Ms. Kellman’s many family law services also include the practice of collaborative law, the goal of which is to achieve settlements outside of court.  In this form of alternative dispute resolution, each party is represented by their own attorney, with both sides working cooperatively to understand each other’s interests and concerns; an approach far different than the traditional adversarial one. The clients and attorneys are assisted as needed by a team of professionals such as financial neutrals, coaches (trained mental health professionals) and child specialists, to help with financial issues and custody/access matters affecting the family.  The goal is to reach a satisfactory outcome for everyone involved.

Ms. Kellman also practices mediation, another way of seeking resolution out of court. Mediation can be especially helpful when parties are looking for a more economical way to reach an agreement.  The mediator acts as a neutral guide to both parties, helping to frame the issues that they must resolve together.  Because a mediator does not represent the interests of either party, it is recommended that each party have their own consulting lawyer to obtain legal advice and to review the proposed mediated agreement before it is finalized.
