"...made the entire process very easy and extremely fast."
I had the pleasure of working with Riley Perry , for my uncontested divorce. She made the entire process very easy and extremely fast. Within seven days of meeting with her, she wrote and the divorce papers and they were signed by my soon to be ex wife and I. I would highly recommend this firm to all friends or family in need.
"He made you feel like he was your best friend..."
After getting a bad divorce deal with my original divorce lawyer Chris was able to help broker a more equitable deal for me. Chris always got back to me within hours be it email or call. His negotiating skills are top notch. He made u feel like he was your best friend and helped with tough decision. My only regret is not going to him sooner.

They were extremely knowledgeable and truly cared for their clients during such an important time in their life. They made sure I was okay with everything at every step and had no problem answering questions I had throughout the whole process.

Divorce Litigation: Protecting Your Rights in Court
Divorce litigation involves resolving disputes through the court system, with each party presenting their case before a judge. In cases where negotiations fail or when one party is uncooperative, litigation becomes a necessary step to secure a fair resolution. At Palermo Law, our skilled litigators bring extensive courtroom experience to the table, ensuring that your rights are vigorously defended.
Key Features of Divorce Litigation:
- Advocacy in Court: Our attorneys are seasoned litigators who will zealously advocate for your interests in the courtroom. We present compelling arguments, cross-examine witnesses, and navigate the legal process on your behalf.
- Evidence Gathering: In preparation for court proceedings, we meticulously gather and present evidence to support your case. This includes financial records, witness testimonies, and any other relevant documentation.
- Legal Strategy: We develop a strategic approach tailored to the unique aspects of your case. Our goal is to secure a favorable outcome while safeguarding your rights and financial interests.
- Court Orders: The court may issue orders related to asset division, child custody, support, and other crucial aspects of the divorce. Our attorneys ensure these orders align with your needs and objectives.
Divorce Mediation: Collaborative Resolution for Amicable Divorce
Divorce mediation is a cooperative process where couples work together, often with the assistance of a neutral mediator, to reach agreements on various aspects of their divorce. This approach emphasizes open communication and compromise, providing a more amicable alternative to traditional litigation.
Key Features of Divorce Mediation:
- Facilitated Communication: Chris or Riley will serve as your experienced divorce mediator and will guide the discussion, helping couples express their needs and concerns. This facilitates constructive communication and encourages mutually beneficial agreements.
- Flexibility and Control: Mediation allows couples to maintain control over the decision-making process. It provides the flexibility to tailor solutions that work best for both parties, fostering a more cooperative and less adversarial environment.
- Cost-Effective: Generally, mediation is a cost-effective alternative to litigation. The collaborative nature of the process often leads to quicker resolutions, saving both time and money.
- Preservation of Relationships: Mediation can be particularly beneficial when there are children involved. By fostering a cooperative atmosphere, it helps preserve relationships and minimize the emotional impact on all parties.
Choosing the Right Path for You
Deciding between divorce litigation and mediation depends on various factors, including the nature of your relationship with your spouse, the level of cooperation between both parties, and the complexity of the issues involved. Here are some considerations to help you determine the best route:
Choose Divorce Litigation If:
- There is a history of domestic violence or abuse.
- Your spouse is uncooperative or unwilling to negotiate.
- Complex financial issues require court intervention.
- A high-conflict situation demands legal representation.
