Gretchen-M-Wallacker-Esq.jpg

 

I have practiced family law for almost three decades. In that time, I have helped countless families transition out of their marriages, settling a full spectrum of complex family law matters that involve child custody, visitation, child support, spousal support, and property division, including division of high net worth estates.

I focus my practice on Alternative Dispute Resolution processes that include mediation, consulting and coaching, and Collaborative Divorce. Whether as a mediator, settlement judge, collaborative counsel, or consulting attorney, I strive to minimize the emotional and financial cost to you and your family. I believe that resolving your matter outside of court allows you both to retain more control of the divorce process and reach a resolution that is specifically tailored to your lives and situation.
