Over 60+ experienced attorneys specializing in family law offer their services without cost in this court-annexed settlement conference program. Begun in 1997, these attorneys have conducted thousands of settlement conferences, assisting low and low-moderate income families in resolving their cases without the financial and emotional expense of trial.
Although there are no formal limitations, this program is intended to serve those for whom it would be a financial hardship to utilize the many fine mediation and arbitration services available in our community.
