ADR: Mediation & Collaborative Law

At Petrelli Previtera Schimmel, our attorneys believe in the process of resolving family law issues that arise in a divorce proceeding without the necessity of litigation, if possible. This is called alternative dispute resolution (ADR). ADR includes processes such as collaborative law, mediation, and arbitration. However, if ADR is not possible, our family law attorneys are aggressive and seasoned litigators who will advocate to achieve the best possible result in your case.

Our collaborative approach solves and mediates family law and divorce issues. Call 215-523-6900.

Alternative dispute resolution and collaborative law can involve meetings between the divorcing spouses and their attorneys, as well as experts, such as forensic accountants, business valuators and psychologists. At Petrelli Previtera Schimmel , it may be beneficial to bring all parties together to try to achieve a fair and equitable settlement. Contact our alternative dispute resolution attorneys today to learn how ADR could work for you.

Our law office can accommodate even cases in which divorcing spouses are unable to communicate. We practice “shuttle diplomacy” when necessary to avoid court.

ADR For Parties With Significant Assets

When a divorce involves people with significant assets, accountants for both parties may be hired. An appraiser may be brought in to value a family-owned business or real estate. It is essential to obtain this information prior to settlement negotiations so that we are able to negotiate from the strongest position.

At Petrelli Previtera Schimmel , we have experience and are confident in our knowledge of how a court is likely to rule in any particular family law situation. Our extensive experience has given us a feel for how a case will proceed. This experience allows us to work out the best possible settlement for our clients.
