How we remove conflict from divorce and family law for people in Highgate
Conflict is by no means something you will have to deal with when you are handling a family law issue. Our experience has shown us that plenty of matters can be resolved amicably and in a way that gets our clients the outcome they want and need.
Our family lawyers in Highgate have specialist expertise in alternative dispute resolution, such as constructive negotiation, mediation and collaborative law. We are able to apply these methods to a range of different scenarios and use them to reduce the potential for costly and disruptive court proceedings.
As effective as alternative dispute resolution is, reaching a resolution out of court is not always possible. In these situations, court proceedings may be required to protect your best interests and those of your family. We can make sure that you have the robust representation required to reach the best possible outcome, as well as providing emotional and practical support along the way.
