A lawyer who knows when to mediate and when to litigate
As an experienced mediator, Tom Lee prefers to start with mediation in custody disputes—litigation is a last resort. However, there are times when mediation is not possible. We can help you determine which method is best in your case.
If we can help you reach an agreement out of court with the other parent of your children, we may be able to save you the high costs of a full legal battle in court. We may also help you negotiate a parenting plan, which allows a better collaborative environment between parents as they raise their children.
In cases where there is abuse, drug use, alcoholism or a bad history between parents, or if an agreement cannot be made through mediation, we can help you explore other options. Before your case is brought to court, we will explain what to expect and formulate a strategy based on the facts and applicable statutes.
