About Us

Divorce with Dignity

Our Divorce Professionals

We offer a broad choice of highly qualified Family Law Attorneys, licensed Mental Health Professionals, and Financial Specialists, who are all divorce specialists, trained in both Mediation and interdisciplinary team CollaborativeProtocols.  

Depending on the divorce process you choose, we individually, or in combinations help you address family law issues respectfully, without court battles. We empower couples’ to divorce honorably, with consideration for the wellbeing of all family members. Some of our attorneys also litigate divorce matters. 

Important Note About Mediation: Literally anyone can take a 30-40 course in mediation and advertise themselves as “divorce mediators.” Mediation is not a profession overseen and regulated by the state or any governing body. Our view is that the primary mediator must always be a licensed family law attorney, educated and knowledgeable about the law and the writing up of legal documents. In addition to being trained mediators, all VDC professionals are licensed or certified in their fields of expertise, with a specialty in Divorce and/or Trusts & Estates, in addition to being trained in interdisciplinary Collaborative Team Protocols. 

Our professionals aim to honor human dignity and celebrate diversity. All our professionals are independent practitioners, trained in both mediation and collaborative divorce and/or collaborative trusts & estates. Learn more about our Professionals
