Father & daughter team ATTORNEYS GARY OBERST & SHARON OBERST DEFALA emphasize that there is an effective alternative to settle differences than a costly courtroom battle. Couples can control the decisions that affect their family, children, finances, business and life through mediation. Gary & Sharon are neutral dispute mediators who help people in conflict make practical, informed decisions.
Mediation is frequently less costly than litigation, benefits children and others by reducing conflict, and often can be completed in less time than litigation. With their help, temporary agreements can be reached to handle immediate concerns. Couples may then negotiate long-range agreements. After independent attorney review, the agreement may be entered as a court order or decree. Sharon writes a legal blog for the office <www.loveyourdivorce.us> and is the current President of the Congregation Beth El of Norwalk. Visit:
