Description of Practice

Ms. Laredo practices collaborative law, a type of representation whereby Ms. Laredo agrees with her client that she will help the client work toward settlement of the divorce issues, without involving adversarial court appearances. Ms. Laredo's commitment not to go to court means that her aim is the same as her client's--achieving successful dissolution resolution by the parties and their attorneys working cooperatively. Ms. Laredo's commitment to settlement makes her an ideal attorney to work with a client who wants to work with his/her spouse and his/her lawyer to problem-solve issues without the threat of "going to court."

For our Matrimonial and Family Law cases we typically utilize a co-mediation style. Co-mediation involves having two mediators work together as a team. Some of the advantages of this approach include: the mediation team can represent disputants' diverse characteristics, a disputant has a better chance of feeling a sense of trust with at least one of the two mediators, the disputants have the advantage of the combined skills of two mediators, whose skills enhance and complement each other.
