Avoiding the courtroom drama
one case at a time
Family Arbitration and Mediation Services (FAMS) was founded to provide clients an affordable alternative to the courtroom through alternative dispute resolution.
We know that litigation can be costly and take a long time. We understand you have a busy life and need closure sooner rather than later.
Schedule mediation, arbitration, and case evaluation
Recently I had the occasion to participate as a Guardian ad Litem in a divorce mediation. It was a particularly contentious case in which there were intervenors. All parties to this action had different agendas and needs that needed to be patiently addressed. The mediator did a masterful job of maintaining a calm, focused environment in an extremely volatile situation. The case settled after many hours, largely due to her abilities and patience.
- J. Diane Woods, Esq, Partner Huff, Woods and Steele -
…excellent mediator with a deep well of local knowledge for DeKalb County cases, as well as the broad-based perspective and pragmatism that comes of being a seasoned domestic law litigator. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a mediator who listens well, is respectful of both sides, and does her level best to maximize the likelihood of end-game success.
- Sarah McCormack, Esq. Partner Kessler & Solomiany -

- Jeffery M. Cleghorn, Esq. Partner Kitchens, New Cleghorn -
…fantastic mediator. Her legal knowledge and experience as an attorney and GAL ensure that the parties will reach a resolution that works for everyone.
