Attorney Snead is a former prosecutor and also a former insurance defense attorney. Why is this important? Attorney Snead knows both sides of the legal process in criminal cases and personal injury cases, which gives her an advantage in negotiating.

Family law matters can be especially stressful due to the sensitive issues involved. All family law cases, including divorce, must go through mediation. Mediation is a process where the parties, together with their attorneys, meet with a neutral third party mediator. The mediator will go back and forth between the parties to try to reach a resolution in the case. It is very important to have an attorney with you at mediation in order to make sure that you understand all of your rights under the law and that all of your interests are protected. Many cases Attorney Snead handles are resolved at mediation without a long court battle.

If you and the other party are in complete agreement as to all the issues from the very beginning, Attorney Snead can prepare a Settlement Agreement and Parenting Plan for a special fixed rate. Attorney Snead will then prepare your Final Judgement and attend your final hearing with you before the Judge. Attorney Snead also practices Collaborative family law for those who would like to keep their personal information out of Court and handle the matter more privately. Let us help you through the legal process.
