Forrest is an attorney-mediator who is dedicated to resolving your case outside of court in a respectful, cost-effective way.

We are open and conducting mediation and individual meetings over the phone and online via Zoom videoconferencing. As of May, 2021 we are beginning to resume in-person meetings on request.

Mediating Attorney

It seems like everyone knows someone who has gone through a “typical” divorce or custody case. The case took too long and cost too much. The client had no control over the process and was dissatisfied with the outcome. The thought of their ex still leaves them bitter. It’s a constant battle just to enforce the judgment.

Sound familiar? You do not have to have the same experience. It is possible to have a “good” divorce. It is possible to work well with your former spouse. It is possible for your kids to see their parents treat each other with respect during this difficult time. Spend some time learning about your options and then let us know how we can help you.

    Uncontested divorce is a good option for people who have either 1) reached a basic divorce agreement with their spouse and need assistance drafting the paperwork, or 2) do not think their spouse will participate in the divorce case. The role of the attorney in an uncontested divorce is to provide legal advice to the client and to draft the divorce paperwork.
