Westlake Village, Calif. (PRWEB) March 05, 2014
Zonder Family Law, a boutique law firm specializing in resolving divorce through incorporating out-of-court options, is pleased to announce it opened an additional office in the Wells Fargo Bank Building at 433 N. Camden in Beverly Hills, California in January 2014. The new office is dedicated to the firm’s emphasis on Mediation and Collaborative Divorce work.
Lisa R. Zonder, a Certified Family Law Specialist (State Bar of California, Board of Legal Specialization,1999), is a Divorce lawyer, Mediator and Collaborative Divorce attorney. Zonder practiced in the Los Angeles area 10 years prior to establishing her Westlake Village – Conejo Valley, Zonder Family Law practice in 2003. The addition of the 90210 office is a natural expansion based on Zonder’s history, court system experience and familiarity in the Beverly Hills area.
Depending on a couple’s personal circumstances, there are many different ways to handle a divorce. From Traditional (court) divorce using lawyer-to-lawyer negotiation to a Mediated or Collaborative Divorce, Zonder has more than 20 years’ experience in all of these conflict resolution options, yet she chooses to focus her practice on “peacemaking,” simply stated, keeping divorce out-of-court. With the Beverly Hills office, Zonder is reaching out to the local community to not only provide Mediation and Collaborative Divorce services, but also educate consumers on these alternatives to court divorce.
Mediation is a method of resolving disputes without a trial. Both parties are actively involved in the divorce settlement and are more likely to positively advance through their divorce and abide by the terms and provisions they have agreed upon. People who play an active role in developing the post-divorce world are more invested in reaching successful, non-confrontational outcomes than those who have had their future decided by a court. This is particularly important in cases that involve children.
Collaborative Divorce is another option to the traditional adversarial court-focused divorce process. Using an interdisciplinary team approach that promotes civility and respect, Collaborative Divorce empowers clients to develop innovative solutions to their custody, support, and property questions. It is a process which provides a couple support to resolve their divorce issues through use of an interdisciplinary team of professionals and requires a pledge not to go to court. It is often referred to as the “no court divorce.”
“If you are a Beverly Hills couple consensually looking to find a neutral mediator to help you through your divorce process and resolve your disputes, I work with couples and families to make divorce transitions smoother, more civil and less costly than court. My focus is to help clients who want to stay out of court,” states Attorney Lisa Zonder. “With Mediated or Collaborative Divorce, the strategic partnering with financial experts, divorce coaches, and business appraisers is especially important for high-net-worth clients or those with complex issues.”
