Ms. Fey is passionate about assisting clients in resolving their family law issues respectfully and expeditiously. Her years of practice as a family law litigator taught her that couples want and need a divorce or separation process that affords them all necessary legal protections and services, while helping couples proactively as they strive to maintain emotional, financial and relational dignity. Ms. Fey’s litigation experience provides an excellent backdrop for her proven efforts toward wise and peaceful settlement. She is dedicated to helping divorcing parents move into healthy co-parenting relationships so that the needs of their children remain paramount even after separation.
One of the most important decisions for divorcing couples is the process they choose. Ms. Fey strives to educate clients about neutral mediation, Collaborative Divorce and litigation before they select a path for their uncoupling. Once a process is selected, wholehearted efforts are made to help the clients define and achieve their goals thoroughly yet cost-effectively.
