It doesn't take a professionally trained, highly accomplished lawyer and mediator to tell you that divorce is stressful.
It does take a professionally trained, highly accomplished lawyer and mediator to help you alleviate that stress. Divorce is always emotionally taxing, but an inordinate amount of stress is an unnecessary component of too many divorces. From the office of Jerald A. Kessler, Attorney and Mediator, in Libertyville, Illinois, I help couples resolve conflicts in a more efficient, effective and civil manner.
The result is a divorce that is less stressful, less costly and less harmful to yourselves, your children and other family and friends.
I have provided effective family law representation for more than 25 years, and have dedicated the last 20 years to training, teaching and practicing mediation. I am proud to have played a part in the development of the American Bar Association's Model Standards of Practice for Family and Divorce Mediation.
Although I mainly provide divorce mediation, I use the same proven process to resolve family disputes, contested wills, workplace disputes, business partnership disagreements and other situations in which a trained mediator can help reach a resolution.
There Is A Better Way To End Your Marriage And Begin Your New Life
Too many people who get divorced are led down the path of litigation. If you default to a system that is designed to adjudicate, then you are likely to find yourself solving matters in a court of law. The last thing you need when getting divorced is a lawsuit.
My clients are relieved when they realize that divorce is a problem-solving challenge that does not need to involve complicated legal arguments.
If a high-conflict case goes to court, the parties can expect a frustrating, emotional and financial struggle for a year or more, often with little to show for it. You can bypass that through collaborative divorce. Frankly, many high-conflict divorce clients regret that they did not try collaborative divorce much earlier.
