Family Law Served with Knowledge and Compassion

The Law Offices of Lisa J. Graff devote its legal practice to family law. Family law includes divorce, post-divorce matters, prenuptial agreement, same sex divorces or separations, paternity actions, and marital agreements. We provide legal services in traditional client representation and alternative dispute resolution including mediation.

At the Law Offices of Lisa J. Graff, our philosophy is to care for each client and respect the uniqueness of each situation. We recognize that separation and divorce are difficult times and by paying close attention to the needs and details of each family situation, we can resolve the process in a timely and reasonable manner. We understand that the legal process does not address the entire divorce experience, particularly the emotional experience unique to each client.

When we represent individual clients, we take the time to listen and understand their personal experience in order to craft a process that supports their needs. We believe that ideally, all matters can be resolved by agreement and when we represent a party, we strive to work collaboratively with the other side to negotiate a settlement. We are experienced negotiators and trial lawyers, as well as strong financial analysts and creative thinkers.We have helped hundreds of people through this difficult time – whether through separation, divorce, mediation, custody, out of wedlock paternity, enforcement of judgments, modifications, prenuptial agreements, marital or post-nuptial agreements and separation of domestic partners.

In situations where the parties are looking to resolve their disputes outside of court they can use Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) methods. We serve as mediators, conciliators, case evaluators, and arbitrators. These ADRs offer clients, who are willing to sit down face-to-face to create a fair and legal settlement, an opportunity to resolve their own case and potentially preserve their working relationship with their soon-to-be former spouse. In this capacity, we help the parties understand the law, find creative solutions and expedite the resolution of their case, usually, at a lower cost to the family. Through our years of experience, we have found that parties who have been able to be active participants in the resolution of their cases feel more in control and less anxious.
