Mediation/Arbitration

Boston Mediation Lawyers

Wellesley Family Mediation Attorneys

Divorce is often a contentious and stressful legal process for many people. However, alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation or arbitration, offers a more amicable approach for those looking to avoid a court battle.

The family lawyers of Grindle Robinson LLP offer experienced services in alternative dispute resolution for clients involved in the divorce process. We are court-certified mediators and arbitrators, and represent men and women throughout the west Boston metropolitan area in all matters of family law.

Benefits of Alternative Dispute Resolution in Divorce

Unlike divorce litigation, mediation or arbitration is handled primarily outside of court. Clients work out the terms of their separation in one or more private meetings facilitated by a certified mediator or arbitrator. As such, the details of the agreement are kept off the public record.

Alternative dispute resolution often works well for clients with children. By working with a neutral mediator, arbitrator or conciliator, parents can maintain more control over the details of child custody and visitation, legal custody, child support, grandparent visitation and other concerns.

Depending on the circumstances, mediation/arbitration is also a more efficient and cost-effective process than litigation, though this is subject to the details of each case. As a court-certified mediator and arbitrator, attorney Fern Frolin assists clients as a neutral party throughout discussions, giving in-depth counsel so clients can make practical decisions given their unique goals.

Our family law attorneys are recognized statewide for their experienced, professional representation and dedicated client service. All of our family lawyers have been selected by their peers for inclusion in the Massachusetts Super Lawyers or Rising Stars lists.
