Meet Jeanne M. Browne

Over the past 30 years, I have helped many people through the separation and divorce process as a family law attorney. Rarely is it a swift and comfortable journey. After years of litigating in courtrooms, I realized that both sides were usually dissatisfied with the judge’s ruling.

In contrast, when I am a mediator or collaborative attorney, I see people look for ways to compromise and see each other’s viewpoint. When they learn to appropriately communicate their needs and goals, they create their own outcomes–controlling their own future.

If you want to learn more about ways to resolve issues without court, I would enjoy the opportunity to meet with you.

Alternatives to Litigation

Are you finding yourself in a difficult place that you never expected to be? You are not alone. Change can be hard, especially when it comes to separating a family. You may really want to end this cooperatively, but that seems out of reach because you simply cannot communicate with each other. You don’t have to fight it out in a courtroom. You are more likely to find your way to a mutually satisfactory resolution if you work with a mediator or collaborative attorney.
