When appropriate, we provide mediation services in order to limit judicial intervention and reduce legal fees.

Part of our philosophy includes working closely with our client to resolve legal issues in the most effective way possible while protecting our client’s best interests. Our knowledgeable attorneys, paralegals and assistants are sympathetic to the emotional and financial strain caused by the divorce process. Our goal includes educating our clients about relevant legal matters while serving their best interests through negotiation, litigation or mediation.

Sternberg Family Law firmly believes that attorneys may best serve their client’s by assisting them to settle differences in an amicable manner. We strive to put issues into perspective when clients are too distraught to do so themselves. If necessary, our skilled and trained lawyers will file the necessary documents and appear in Court to litigate on the client’s behalf.
