Family Law | Mediation | Collaborative Law

Our Services

At HBMS we understand that family law cases frequently involve a number of complex issues that are incredibly important and deeply personal to our clients and their families. After listening carefully to your concerns, we will help you choose among the following options:

Family Law

Family law cases involve the initiation, management and resolution of family law issues through a process overseen by the court system. The lawyers at HBMS will guide you through this process, whether that involves negotiating and reaching resolutions outside of court or representing you in contested court hearings.

Collaborative Law

Contested family law litigation focused on beating the other party at all costs is never the best approach, and particularly not in cases involving children. When both parties to a family law case are dedicated to resolving their disputes in ways that are both fair and sensitive to the unique needs of all involved, we can help resolve your family law disputes through the collaborative law process. Whether you are going through a divorce or other family law conflict, collaborative law offers a structured and flexible alternative to the traditional resolution process overseen by the court system.

Mediation

Our role as attorney-mediators is to help you and the other party/parties involved in your family law dispute reach mutual and enforceable agreements by acting as a neutral professional. Mediation is a confidential process, designed to encourage cooperation and creative problem solving. Drawing from years of experience representing hundreds of clients in family law cases, we will work to find positive solutions that are both thoughtfully and personally tailored to you and your family.

Estate Planning

We can provide comprehensive estate plans consisting of a will and/or trust, a medical power of attorney, a financial power of attorney, a living will, and a disposition of last remains or individual documents at a flat rate. Having an estate plan in place is one of the best things you can do for your family and loved ones by giving them certainty of your wishes. Having an estate plan, including financial and medical directives, can remove a substantial burden from your loved ones in the event of your death or disability no matter the size of your estate.
