Divorce Mediation, Divorce Lawyers & Collaborative Divorce Attorneys

Divorce mediation allows both parties to identify, negotiate and resolve the issues raised by the decision to divorceThe mediator establishes firm ground rules and a comfortable environment so that emotionally charged issues can be objectively discussed. The mediator helps both spouses gather all necessary information and review it systematically. A mediator often helps formulate a more creative solution than the court could offer. When parenting agreements and financial distribution plans are made by the spouses themselves, there is a much better chance of meeting the needs of the entire family. Contact us today to learn how a mediation approach may be better suited to your family situation.

Department of Children and Families (DCF) and Juvenile Law

The McConnell Family Law Group’s DCF and juvenile law practice is focused on the two main areas of juvenile law: child protection (matters in which the State, often through DCF, seeks to intervene in family relations, such as removing children from their parents), and delinquency (cases where children are arrested and charged with criminal offenses). In both areas, it's imperative to have experienced legal representation to protect your rights and the rights of your child and to achieve the best possible outcome for your family.

Client Testimonials

The McConnell Family Law firm was the perfect anecdote for one of the most troubling times in my life. After 22-years of marriage and with two teenagers my husband decided to leave. My ex-husband is a man accustomed to getting what he wants professionally, personally, and in our marriage. Having these attorneys by my side was the perfect anecdote. When explaining things to me, they were always compassionate and thorough. My lawyer was steadfast and passionate in court and in conferences and had an ability to disarm my husband’s attorney while connecting with the judge. I’d recommend them to anyone facing the difficult reality of divorce.


The McConnell Family Law Group is a team of skilled family law and divorce lawyers committed to securing the best possible outcome for your family law needs. Our ultimate goal is to help you successfully transition to the next stage of your life.
