One Lawyer

When people can be civil and honest while going through divorce.

is an intelligent and cost effective way to resolve a disagreement with a guarantee of no court battles. Both sides get help from one lawyer to learn all of the legal advice either side would have received if they had come in to meet separately with the lawyer. This does not create a conflict of interest because both sides agree to the process in the first place and the attorney is neutral, giving all legal advice and information to both sides at all times.

Divorce can be less painful

Doing things right in the first place saves a lot of pain and expense. That's our job.

The dissolution of your marriage is an emotional and stressful event. The compassionate attorneys at Ascher & Denton, PLLC help ease the legal strain of divorce so you can concentrate on the health and well-being of your family.
