Our first step is to meet with each party individually to learn each person’s perspective, including an understanding of one’s needs and concerns. Subsequently, we meet together, focusing on the decisions that need to be made. When an agreement is reached, we will prepare a memorandum of understanding. We encourage our clients to make detailed agreements to prevent future conflict.


Please call or contact by email to discuss. Depends on number of participants and location.
