The laws governing family law are complex and confusing, and every marital dissolution is different. Often times advice from out-of-state attorneys, family and friends, and the internet is erroneous. Working with an experienced attorney ensures that the client receives accurate information and is fully aware of his or her rights and responsibilities.

Mediation is a formal negotiation of an out-of-court settlement facilitated by a certified Family Financial Mediator, the parties, and the parties’ attorneys. Susan Harman-Scott is a certified Family Financial Mediator and has solid experience both as a mediator and representing clients in mediation.

If the parties are unable to reach a solution after engaging in a mediated settlement conference, litigation in Civil District Court is the next step. Trying a family law case can be an expensive, complicated, and lengthy process. Susan has extensive trial experience in all aspects of family law.

I had a consultation with Susan regarding my marriage that was toxic both for myself and my children. She listened and helped me see that things were even more abusive than I was even letting myself see. Even though I couldn't retain her she and Linda helped me find resources to help my situation. My battle isn't over by any means but I will forever be thankful that they helped me begin. Thank You
