Your Attorney

for Resolution Outside the Courtroom

Settlement Counsel

Settlement Counsel

The path where your attorney works with the other attorney and his/her client in a non-adversarial setting to resolve the family law matter. By choosing this path, Karen J. Levitt is your attorney; listening, guiding, advising, and advocating for you throughout the process to reach a mutually agreed upon settlement.

Collaborative Law

Collaborative Law

This path is similar to settlement counsel as you have a family law attorney representing and advocating for you and your interests.
