Attorneys James C. Runyon and Anastasia C. Jaster at the THEMIS LAW GROUP, LLP address divorce-related problems in a sensitive and creative manner, providing accessible, effective and affordable legal representation. Initially, James & Anastasia make an effort to stabilize their client’s emotional and financial situation. This typically requires obtaining temporary court orders concerning child custody, support and the allocation of debt responsibility. They realize that it is often in the children’s best interest to settle the divorce, rather than have the parties continually battle in court. However, they balance that need with the overriding commitment to what their client believes to be a fair and equitable dissolution of their marriage. Services include Guardian Ad Litem, family law mediation and LGBTQ (including adoptions & prenuptial agreements). Focused on the community, they offer value-based billing with predictable fees & set rates, based on family income & stage of litigation. Additionally, the firm will sponsor a Pride charity event on June 25 for LoveTheGoldenRule.com. See their Facebook page for more info.

ATTORNEY SUSAN M. HELMS provide clients with control over their divorce outcome and their future, all the while avoiding costly litigation fees and keeping them out of court. As a collaborative divorce attorney, skilled in mediation, she facilitates a holistic and amicable approach to divorce. Susan states that in many instances, collaborative divorce & mediation are less expensive than litigation. Both processes are also confidential, securing your privacy in a neutral forum without the stress of a trial or judicial proceeding. Collaborative divorce and mediation can be completed in less time than litigation, whereas contested matters can take years to resolve. Susan is quick to point out that with collaborative & mediation, each party is allowed to direct the process on their own terms, reaching a decision that works for both parties. This approach allows them to move at a comfortable pace, improves post-settlement relationships, and reduces the negative impact of the divorce on the parties involved. Susan’s general practice includes divorce litigation, estate planning, probate and trust administration.
