I have had an interest in helping families and individuals navigate the difficult issues of separation, divorce, support and custody since long before I began practicing family law. Perhaps it was my background in psychology, or some of my volunteer efforts, but I have always seen the importance of family law practitioners being sensitive to the needs of their clients, throughout what will most likely be a very difficult chapter in their lives.
I have found in the more than a decade I have been practicing family law, that litigation, and the adversarial process, is not for everyone. In an effort to meet the needs of my clients, I completed a mediation training approved by the Association for Conflict Resolution, focused specifically on Family Conflict mediation.
Therapists and Custody Experts
Professional counselors are available to provide individual therapy, couples counseling, co-parenting counseling, child therapy, and group therapies, many with a focus on coping with divorce. Participation in individual, joint or other forms of counseling can be agreed to by the parties or ordered by the Court.
Appraisers, Vocational Assessors, Custody Evaluators & Others
Often divorce litigation, or even negotiation, requires the help of experienced experts who can analyze financial information and provide expert testimony regarding net incomes, earning capacities, business valuations, appraisal reports and custody evaluations.
Rebecca A. MyerS,ESQUIRE Attorney at law
I am also a certified collaborative attorney capable of assisting clients through the collaborative process and I am a member of CLASP and the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals.
Regardless of whether my client wishes to pursue litigation, mediation, or collaboration I strive to be sensitive to their needs and attentive to their requests. I believe that my role as an attorney is to bring a level of transparency to the legal system. My clients should not only know what is going on in their case, but should be comfortable that they understand what each step is and what that means in real world terms.
If you are looking for that type of representation, please feel free to contact me

Paralegals and Associate Attorneys
I understand both on a personal and professional level how draining, both financially and emotionally, family Court can be. As such, i work with a team of legal assistants, paralegals, and associates who may assist in you with your matter to minimize costs to whatever extent we can.
Often we work with financial professionals in a variety of contexts, including calculation of martial asset values, the parties' net disposable incomes and others who may assist the parties in looking toward the impact of asset distribution and/or support awards on their long term financial future.
