Collaborative Divorce

Working with a team of trained professionals, you and your spouse agree to resolve all matters related to your divorce and separation without going to court.  In addition to having a Collaborative attorney, you can choose to have the support of mental health professionals and financial experts to guide you through the emotional and financial aspects of your divorce. You determine your outcome.


In mediation, parties choose to resolve their conflicts with the help of an intermediary.  A certified mediator is a neutral person, trained to assist you in finding your own solutions to your dispute. A mediator cannot make decisions for you, but facilitates conversations and decision-making so you can remain focused on reaching your goals. Mediation helps deescalate conflict and keeps you focused on reaching your goals. 

Settlement Negotiations

Divorcing couples can resolve matters regarding their children and finances on their own.  Kristin represents individuals through all stages of the settlement process. With her support and advice through negotiating and finalizing a marital settlement agreement, you can move forward with peace-of-mind.


Some clients find themselves in a position where they simply cannot come to a final agreement with their spouse.  Maybe you have reached a partial agreement, but are at an impasse on remaining issues.  Or, mediation or traditional negotiation were not appropriate in your case.  If you need the court's intervention, Kristin will be your experienced advocate at every step.
