Once litigation has commenced, our Court rules require parties go through Family Financial Mediation prior to trial of their Equitable Distribution Case. These are typically calendared through Family Court with a list of mediators. Laura Devan is available for private mediations that may be able to be scheduled more quickly than through the court system leading to a faster resolution of your case. Laura has undergone 40 hours of mediation training as well as extensive Family Law training both as a Judge and an Attorney. She has mediated, tried and heard hundreds of Equitable Distribution Cases as a Mediator, Attorney and Judge. Laura has the unique ability, with over 22 years of an experience, to analyze a case, provide an overview and resolve the case with a fair outcome. Private Mediations may save you thousands of dollars and precious time with a quicker resolution than litigation. In our experiences, parties are typically happier when they control the outcome of their case by out of court settlement.
