For those who want to step away from the court process, but who need help because they disagree as to child support, spousal support, custody, visitation, property division, etc., there is mediation.

The mediator is not permitted to give legal advice, and the parties’ attorneys usually do not participate in the mediation sessions themselves.

Teresa is a very professional legal representative that was very patient with me and very comforting. She took the time to answer and clarify, if needed, any questions I had. She was very helpful and knew the laws and how to handle what I would call a difficult situation. She even assisted me after the divorce was final with some advice I needed and was there for me even with her busy caseload. I would certainly recommend her to anyone that would need her services.

She has a great depth in many areas of the law with the ability to understand how painful these times can be. She is very professional and has an extreme passion for high integrity.

Teresa is a knowledgeable and very professional attorney who cares about her clients. She did a great job in walking me through divorce, custody and support issues which are inherently fraught with emotional overload and can be simply overwhelming.
