The Law Office of Jennifer A. Ewers provides experienced legal representation and mediation services in a professional and compassionate environment.
The break up of a relationship, and the events that often occur in the years following, are inherently emotional and challenging experiences, often full of stress and conflict. Even in the best of circumstances, ending a relationship is hard. As with other life transitions, you can decide how you will manage this major life change. Your decision will likely have a profound impact on your family and your future, and it is worth taking time to choose the process that is most appropriate for your individual situation. READ MORE
Whether you choose to litigate or mediate, Jennifer has over 20 years of experience in family law, and is a trained mediator. She can help you navigate through your situation either by representing your interests with confidence and compassion in the litigation process, or by facilitating a collaborative, comprehensive, and equitable resolution through the mediation process.
Family Law covers the legal relationships between family members, including married couples, parents, children, grandchildren and domestic partners. If you need an attorney to represent you in a family law matter, you need to be confident that you are informed about the law and the process, and that your interests are being protected. You need an experienced and capable attorney to advocate for you.
If you are looking for a confident, caring and effective attorney to vigorously represent you in a divorce, child custody or other family matter, Jennifer can help. She has extensive experience in family law matters, including divorce, child custody, complex property valuations and asset divisions, adoptions, and non-traditional family issues. Jennifer’s goal is to achieve an agreed resolution, but when litigation becomes necessary, she has over twenty years of experience advocating for clients in family law cases.
While Jennifer strives to reach mutually agreed solutions through negotiation and settlement, she is always prepared to go to court if an agreed resolution is not workable. Jennifer is never intimidated by litigation and will aggressively advocate for your interests in court if necessary. She has a wealth of experience guiding clients through the complexities of family law cases in the states of Idaho and Washington, and will handle your case with professionalism, compassion, integrity and skillful advocacy.
Mediation is the negotiation of a legally binding agreed resolution of disputes with the help of a mediator. The mediation process is designed to allow you to maintain control over the outcome of your case, and to make thoughtful and reality-based agreements customized for your situation, without the dynamics of an adversarial court process.
The conventional litigation process is predicated on an adversarial “win-lose” model in which it is assumed that the parties must fight against each other for their “rights.” In the context of family law matters, the conventional model ignores the fact that the majority of people do not want a lawsuit or additional acrimony; most just want a smooth life transition, advice on how to go about that transition, and a dignified resolution of the financial, emotional, and parenting issues.
In the process of mediation, you will have professional guidance to help you reach an agreement that satisfactorily addresses all issues in your situation, and emerge from this major life transition with a resolution you participated in creating. As a trained mediator, Jennifer will provide skilled support and the financial, legal, practical and other information you need to make the best and most informed decisions possible based on your own unique priorities and circumstances. Jennifer focuses on a collaborative approach that will allow you to explore options and achieve the best outcome for your family.
