The Best In Mediation

Mediation represents the second path couples seeking to legally end their marriage can take and is widely considered to be the preferable option. When an independent third party can mediate the dispute, it removes the incentives for both parties to destroy any semblance of normalcy and amicability in the relationship so that they can come out on top once the divorce is finalized.
In Orange County, a mediation firm has recently been recognized as being a cut above the rest for the quality of their service. McNamee Mediations, the mediation and family law firm headed by Colleen McNamee, has been recognized by Cambridge Who’s Who Registry, which promotes a select few chosen for their accomplishments and achievements.
Colleen was selected for her abilities as a mediator through her 14 years in Family Law practice and her 9+ years as a Family Law Mediation Specialist, all of which have been spent running her own firm. She has seen the successful conclusion of many high-end divorce and paternity cases, where clients are guided through property, custody, child and spousal support, and modifications of existing judgments.

The firm has successfully navigated the turbulent waters of Family Law for almost a decade, and as a result has garnered many ardent supporters in the ranks of her previous and current clients. A quick perusal through her Yelp reviews reveals how high these clients hold in her regard:

Colleen McNamee is the absolute best[!!] When we started out on our journey of going through a divorce, I felt overwhelmed from every direction and had no idea where to begin or what to expect. I’ve heard all the horror stories of things turning ugly and costs rising as the process drags on and on. BUT, I am SO thankful we went with Colleen!! She made the whole process clear, concise, & cost effective. She helped us communicate peacefully and reach an agreement that worked for both parties. She is very professional and yet the kindest human being! [Thank you Colleen from the bottom of my heart for everything!!] (Jess B., Yelp Review)

As much as I wish I didn’t have to write a review for these services… Colleen has been nothing short of a miracle worker. I have been going through a painful and messy divorce but I am so thankful for Colleen’s understanding, kind nature and expertise to make a difficult situation at least tolerable. She is completely fair and I appreciate that she will call me out when I’m being unreasonable and can get me to look at things from another perspective while also feeling like she’s on my side. I had doubts that we could come to any agreement without having to go through lawyers and an ugly court battle but she was able to do just that. I highly recommend her services – don’t go anywhere else! (Christina C., Yelp Review)

If you are in need of a Family Law firm that specializes in not only mediating a more amicable split, but in settling even the most complex and intricate legal disputes between parties, give Colleen a call. Both Cambridge and her previous clients have recognized her abilities, so the decision can only be a good one:

Hire The Best Lawyer You Can Find

There are many reasons why a couple will choose to end their marriage in divorce. Sometimes, it can be due to irreconcilable differences; in other cases, it can be due to infidelity. Divorce can happen to anyone—even celebrities.

Movie star Brad Pitt has had his fair share coverage in the news regarding his relationships. In his two high-profile divorces, he needed to hire some of the best lawyers in the country in order to handle them adequately. His first divorce was in 2005 with Jennifer Aniston. Unfortunately, this came at a time that shortly followed his filming in a movie where he had a starring role alongside Angelina Jolie; rumors swirled around that they had developed a love affair on set. It was speculated that Aniston wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt, but that in hindsight, Aniston felt that Pitt had a “missing sensitivity chip”. Fast-forwarding to 2017, Angelina Jolie decided to file for divorce from Pitt. History seemed to repeat itself, however this time, in a gut-wrenching contrast to their first onscreen romance. The couple’s divorce came shortly after the two starred in a movie about a couple in a troubled marriage. As far as the Jolie and Pitt love story goes, it seems that fact was never too far from fiction.
