Pasadena Family Law Mediation Lawyers
Board Certified Family Law Attorney to Help Mitigate Stress
Whether you are going through a divorce or any other
family law conflict, the emotional gravity of your case is likely immense and overwhelming.
This stress is only further exacerbated by complicated and confusing legal
proceedings that are costly and time-consuming. Fortunately, in some scenarios,
a trial may not always be necessary to find a legal solution. With a balance
of compassion and aggressive negotiation, you may be able to resolve your
legal battle in mediation, without having to go to court.
At Goldberg & Gille, we understand the complex nature of these matters
and are dedicated to helping families navigate complicated legal processes
with as little stress as possible. One such way that our
Pasadena divorce attorneys can accomplish this is by representing our clients in mediation settings.
Our primary attorney, Christine Gille is a board certified family law
specialist, which means she can offer a rare expertise as you work toward
a resolution outside of a trial.
The Process of Mediation
Trial proceedings can be sterile, uncomfortable, and demanding, which often
undermines the emotional depth of your case. The purpose of mediation
is exactly the opposite: to provide you and your spouse a comfortable
and open environment to effectively communicate your interests and needs
as you work through your differences. Mediation will be overseen by a
neutral, third-party moderator whose purpose is to encourage collaboration
and amicable negotiation.
consultation to discuss your case and determine if mediation is right for you!
Throughout the process, our attorney can help you and your spouse assess
the areas in which you disagree and decide where you need to work together
to reach a compromise. It is important to approach your mediation with
an open mind and be understanding of your ex-partner's needs while
standing firm to your own. If successful, you may find your divorce to
be far less stressful than a
contested one that requires ultimate decisions made by a judge and jury.
The benefits of mediation include:
- Reduction of costs for trial appearances
- Settlement of all issues without judicial interference
- Confidentiality and privacy without a public record
- You control the process, not the court
- Can improve communication between you and your ex
The Role of an Attorney in Mediation
The most important benefit of mediation is that you and your spouse maintain
the control over all decisions that are made; however, it is still highly
encouraged to have legal counsel.
Having a Pasadena family lawyer on your side can give you the confidence
of knowing that your best interests will be protected and advocated as
you negotiate issues concerning:
It is too common for one spouse to compromise more than the other in the
interest of maintaining civility throughout the process. Furthermore,

lead to the necessity of trial, which is what we want to avoid. Thus,
at Goldberg & Gille, we can be in your corner at every stage of the
process to help you make informed decisions.
