Mediation Questions

I’m not sure if a divorce mediator is right for me. Why shouldn’t I handle my case on my own? Going through divorce alone is not the best idea when you have family and asset matters to figure out. Experienced divorce mediators are made for the job, able to ensure hat you end up with a fair and reasonable agreement in the most affordable way for both of you. If there are obstacles you have not yet agreed on, a mediator will help you get to the bottom of these issues.

Is there a difference in time between divorce and mediation methods? Yes. Divorce litigation could take a year or more from start to finish, depending on what issues are involved. The most complicated issues will, of course, take the longest. If you choose mediation, you may find settlement within a time span of a few months or shorter.

Will mediation help with custody issues? Of course, many issues can be mediated. You and your spouse may be able to agree on a legally-binding parenting plan to resolve any of the issues that have become apparent in your custody case.

Past attorneys have told me I should skip mediation and go straight to litigation. Is this a good idea? Other attorneys may not understand the valuable services that mediations can provide for you and your family. Proceedings in court could last for months or years, with contempt petitions, costly litigation, and so much more as your private life becomes public. You will find the best agreements for you and your loved ones through mediation, so consider this option today.

Are you convinced that mediation may actually be the right decision for you? Sometimes, depending on the circumstances of your case, mediation may be the most peaceful and cost-effective way to come to a conclusion about your case. We can help. Call us today to find out how we can help with your mediation case and what we will do for you.

Beyond impressed! I had been self represented through years of family law and child support court hearings and was so hesitant to hire an attorney out of fear and trusting that they would appropriately represent myself and child. After tons of research I contacted Ms. Azizi. I immediately was greeted by Lorenzo, the Office Administrator, who made me feel so welcomed and comfortable. He assisted in making communication seamless and effortless and walked me through each step of the process. Ms. Azizi heard my concerns and was extremely sensitive to the matter of FAMILY. The team did an amazing job with discovery and building a strong case that gave me confidence and I was successful in coming to an agreement with the other party, in what has yet to have been the easiest hearing of all, thanks to them. Ms. Azizi settled my case after years of stress and agony. I am grateful for finding the team and Ms. Azizi and definitely recommend them for any of your legal needs!

This law firm is the best! They have helped me so much with my Divorce and Criminal cases and I really wouldn't know what to do if I didn't have them to represent me. Lorenzo and Ro are awesome and are there to help at all times. My attorney was Mr.Edmondson and he has been amazing. This law firm is truly great and I will never go to any other one. Their responses are quick and will answer any questions you might have.

Seven stars. I had planned to put up my reviews after my final judgment but after the first hearing, couldn't wait, and I would write this whatever the outcome of my difficult case. Soheila was simply amazing in her arguments and strategy before the judge. I felt so taken care of. I chose her for her near-30 years of experience as an attorney, the depth and strength I observed in one who had weathered hardship through her many accomplishments, her compassion, and her smarts. I can't imagine what other attorney would have Zoomed with me even in sickness to help prepare me for a legal session. And I later saw how keen she'd been in her advice. I've been deeply touched watching Soheila and her paralegal Lynda Walker fight for my child as if he were their own. They in particular have treated me with great humanity - day and night from what I experienced at my former attorney's. Lynda is a gem, on her toes, flexible, hard-working, committed to each client, humble, and sweet. She has slaved over my case, doing much of the writing, watchful of me on paper and in person, guiding me gently while encouraging me to use my voice. The staff, including the office administrator Lorenzo and Linda C, is caring, respectful, and conscientious. A band of angels.
