Proven Choices: Out of Court Resolution for Divorce and Family Law Matters

Our society tends to be litigious; a win-lose mentality where disputes are settled by a judge. The process is often stressful, scary, and adversarial, leaving decisions about a family in the hands of a stranger (the judge) and providing little to no control over the process or outcome.

There are proven and less stressful and potentially less costly options for settling divorce and other family legal matters. Levitt Family Law & Mediation is a law firm designed to help clients achieve resolution without resorting to court.
