Today is the last day for our receptionist and legal assistant, Kristi Reeves. Kristi has been with the firm, on a part time basis, since 2010 while attending college, and has been a great addition to our team. Kristi is a hard working young lady, who always keeps a smile on her face. We are excited, for her, that she is moving on to the next stage of her career, but she will be greatly missed by all of us! Good luck Kristi!!
Meredith Ditchen-Oakley as a mediator settled a domestic case today, which saved the parties thousands in litigation fees and months of continued litigation issues.
We received this lovely thank you card from a client. The client’s name is intentionally blacked out.
Mrs. Ditchen-Oakley is at Day Two of Parent Coordination Training! What a great tool in high conflict cases! She can’t wait to get started in this new area of her practice!
Attorney Meredith W. Ditchen-Oakley has been very successful with mediations these last few weeks. She has been able to save several families from long expensive legal battles, while protecting clients rights. She helped a father gain precious parenting time with his young children, and has many more success stories. Not only does Mrs. Ditchen-Oakley mediate as an advocate for our clients, but she also serves as a neutral mediator in several local counties. Mrs. Ditchen-Oakley can mediate with parties right at the beginning of the divorce process before they decide to enter the court system. From the inception, she can work with parties to work out terms for their divorce that make it uncontested, keeping the decision-making and control within the family and making sure the entire family transitions through a difficult period with respect and integrity while saving the family thousands of dollars!
If you know a family that is in the process of making the difficult decision to divorce, perhaps mediation is an option for them before they get caught up in the litigation system. Mediation is a neutral process and the role of mediator is different then that of attorney so be sure to ask our office some questions about how it works. Parties can come to mediation with or without attorneys and they always will have the right to have any agreement they enter into reviewed by an attorney before it is final so it is win/win for the divorcing family!
