Denham Family Law knows that not every family has the same needs, and not everyone is able to afford to litigate a divorce. We're here to help people through very difficult times by educating them on their rights, their options and our best estimate of how much the matter will cost, then the decision is theirs. We purposefully keep a very small caseload because we want to be there for our clients when they need us the most. We have a very thorough screening process because we want to be sure it's a good fit for you and for us.
We've been through a divorce, and although the circumstances may be different, we understand the fear and uncertainty. Some of our clients need litigation, others are agreeable to using mediation as a way to reduce time, cost and keeping the court out of their lives. Others need a document reviewed, or consulting on a single issue. The paperwork in family law can be overwhelming (we kill a lot of trees) so sometimes we prepare the paperwork for you and give you the direction you need to navigate the system.
We listened to our clients and we’re one of the few family law firms that now offer 100 percent virtual/cloud-based client meetings.
Although some cases need litigating, We believe that mediation is the wave of the future because of the court backlog and the cost of litigation . Mediation puts the decision making in the hands of the parties where it belongs.
The parties don't have to agree on issues to mediate. In fact, most do not agree, but through a process where both parties are present on Zoom with Donna Denham as a neutral person, she is able to educate the parties and help them reach an agreement. She's been a settlement attorney for the court since 2012 settling cases and have only had a few she wasn't able to settle completely.
Donna Denham is a Certified Family Law Specialist so she understands and knows the law. She 's been litigating for over 16 years and has seen a lot of different agreements. She can give the parties examples of agreements other people have used successfully to resolve their matters.
One always needs a secure and a higher level of legal counsel for a divorce. Donna possesses in-depth knowledge of the statutes surrounding marital dissolution that can be your best asset.
