Massachusetts Family Law Mediation Practice

Attorney Jennifer Koiles is an experienced family law attorney and a certified and trained mediator. The well-established family law practice of Koiles Pratt Family Law Group serves people seeking cost-effective, client-centered divorce and child custody disputes.

Divorce is a challenging but increasingly common outcome for many marriages.

Traditional divorce through the court system takes a heavy toll on family finances and on family relationships.

By contrast, a mediated divorce (or separation of unmarried parents) is almost certain to take less time and be more cost-effective than going to court. Mediation is a process that is controlled by the parties themselves, and therefore tends to provide a result that is more satisfactory to the parties, and does less damage to family relationships.

Mediation provides for mutual agreement on important goals including:

  • Ongoing stability in children's lives through and beyond the separation or divorce
  • Preservation of key family relationships
  • Equitable property and asset division
  • Agreements regarding alimony and support

Clients who opt to resolve issues such as these through mediation appreciate the following benefits:

  • They control the process of mediation with the help of a neutral third party, the mediator.
  • Negotiations are handled in a safe, private environment rather than in an intimidating and stressful public family court setting.
  • Couples can make joint decisions regarding custody, support and property, rather than having a judge issue an order.
  • Costly legal procedures are averted.

Clients of Koiles & Associates have found that divorce and child custody agreements achieved with the help of a mediator have been less financially and emotionally draining than courtroom battles.

Mediation is suitable for couples with or without minor children. It works well for couples with few assets as well as for those with significant assets.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
