Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Virginia Divorce Mediation Lawyers

A Less Adversarial Approach to Divorce

The Virginia divorce mediation attorneys of Glassman & Michael, PLLC, offer strategic legal advice and guidance to divorce clients who seek a less adversarial approach to ending their marriage and resolving marital issues. We represent individuals in divorce mediation, arbitration and uncontested actions with or without a property settlement agreement. Our lawyers often encourage these methods of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) over litigation.

Taking a less adversarial route not only saves our clients the time and money associated with litigation, but also spares them emotional energy that comes with a contested trial. Reach out to our firm for more information.

Having previously worked as a mediator and arbitrator, attorney Stephen Glassman brings a unique and valuable perspective to our ADR clients. In addition, Mr. Glassman has represented numerous individuals in arbitrations governed by the International Chamber of Commerce, the American Arbitration Association and the National Association of Securities Dealers.

Assertive Representation Obtaining Amicable Divorce Resolutions

While ADR methods of resolving family disputes can be less adversarial than litigation, our firm does not scale down the level of commitment we have to each client. We protect our clients' best interests in all forms of resolution and are always prepared for trial if other methods do not succeed.

Contact our firm to learn more about your options in:

  • Divorce mediation: During divorce mediation, our attorneys provide skilled representation as you and your spouse speak with a neutral third party. We ensure that your rights are protected as you seek to amicably resolve your differences.
  • Divorce arbitration: When you agree to arbitration, a third-party arbitrator will hear both sides of the case and make a ruling much like a judge would. While less expensive than trial, the decision of an arbitrator usually cannot be appealed. There are, however, extensive benefits to arbitration that are not available in a courtroom proceeding.
  • Uncontested divorce: While no divorce is truly without disagreements, uncontested means a couple can resolve divorce issues through negotiation and property settlement agreements, without going through a contested trial. Our uncontested divorce attorneys offer practical advice and guidance to help clients obtain swift and peaceful resolutions.
  • ADR for unmarried parents and post-divorce modification and enforcement issues: At Glassman & Michael, PLLC, some of our family law clients come to us after their divorce has been finalized. Others are unmarried parents who face child custody and child support issues. Each of these individuals, much like our divorce clients, can benefit from ADR. Whether you seek an increase in child support from your ex-spouse a year after your divorce or are an unmarried parent who wants fair parenting time, our firm can help you find favorable solutions outside of court.
