Legal counseling and litigation services for families in crisis
At the Law Office of Peter Scaglione, Jr., our attorney and staff extend personal care and understanding to families undergoing some of the most traumatic moments in their personal lives. Our firm offers trial services for family law, matrimonial law and divorce law disputes.
Our firm is dedicated to protecting a client's rights and interests — both in and out of court. We recommend a non-adversarial approach because (1) litigation is expensive and (2) mediation is generally more effective; however, we have over three decades of trial experience in Family Law.
• Mediation — Our attorney believes that peaceful resolution of home-based conflict through mediation often leads to more fulfilling and holistic outcomes at faster and more affordable rates. There are many other benefits associated with mediation. A recent divorce mediation study showed that parties involved in mediation are likely to comply with the agreement because each party proactively voiced their concerns and negotiated the terms of the outcome. Furthermore, the study has demonstrated a high degree of correlation between mediated resolutions and non-custodial parent involvement in child rearing. Our firm makes it a priority to put the family's best interests first — sometimes going so far as to recommend the services of church counseling and therapists to diffuse a brewing crisis.
• Litigation — Adversarial courtroom proceedings allow a judge to settle the conflict when the litigants themselves cannot find middle ground. The court sets the timeline for appearances and makes the final determination as to the outcome. An attorney serves — in this setting — to communicate the facts effectively so as to compel the judge to rule in his client's favor. Our attorney has honed his trial skills in family court during more than 34 years in practice. He brings substantive legal knowledge and expansive trial skill to the practice of family law litigation.
The Law Office of Peter Scaglione, Jr. extends a helping hand to husbands, wives, parents, children, exes, grandparents, stepparents and new parents in need of legal services.
