Thank you for all your knowledge, conscientiousness, and kindness.

It does not happen often, but there are those few times over the years that I have had the honor to work with a professional who I knew as soon as they began speaking—this is an outstanding professional and an incredible person—working with you was one of those times.

Thank you for all your knowledge, conscientiousness, and kindness.


Do yourself a favor and call
Alternative Divorce Solutions…..
you’ll be glad you did!!!

Thank you very much fellow Yelpers for helping me find Alternative Divorce Solutions!! No one likes talking about their divorce but choosing Alternative Divorce Solutions was the best decision I ever made…PERIOD! Lani Baron and her entire team were flawless…all of the details and all of the paperwork were handled to perfection…and at a reasonable cost!

My Husband and I Came Through this Process Whole and At Peace.

Our family is so fortunate to have the team at Alternative Divorce Solutions by our side navigating us through this process. Lani Baron is outstanding; every interaction I had with she and her staff exceeded my expectations. Personally, my experience with mediation was outstanding. I highly recommend it. My husband and I came through this process whole and at peace. Most important, our son is happy. All of our meetings were held together, with easy and open communication. Everything was extremely straightforward and transparent. Legally, if you have ANY questions regarding your divorce, your mediator is there to assist both parties equally. Lani and her team are passionate about family law and know their stuff. They consistently championed collaboration, discussion, and fair outcomes, while letting my husband and I drive all of the agreements.

Lani’s Knowledge of the Law was Instrumental in Prevailing in a Situation that Appeared to be a Lost Cause from the Onset.

I must have seen four attorneys over the previous two weeks, some very expensive, who clearly did not understand the issues that the case turned on. Family law cases often require a deft touch approach and a lot of knowledge of the laws (old & new). When we got to court, Lani quietly took charge and led the negotiations with opposing council. I let her know where my boundaries were and what was flexible. Additionally, her knowledge of the law was instrumental in prevailing in a situation that appeared to be a lost cause from the onset. No other attorney I spoke with or previously hired seemed to think this was possible. I really appreciate Lani’s help and recommend her and her firm to anyone; she’s top notch and will get you resolves.

If you are looking for a mediator, do yourself a favor and go with Lani!

I seriously cannot say enough good things about Lani and her team at ADS. I was referred to them by a friend who used her services and it was the best decision my spouse and I could have made when handling our divorce. She was not only incredibly kind and compassionate to us both, but she is very smart and informed us about the whole legal process. Our documents were filed quickly and with complete accuracy. If you are looking for a mediator, do yourself a favor and go with Lani!

I don’t know if I would have made it through my divorce without Lani & the team at Alternative Divorce Solutions.

I was so stressed out before I went to ADS. Once I got there Lani sat with me and my husband and explained the whole mediation process. After I left I knew exactly what to expect and ADS lived up to my expectations. My paperwork was perfect and done so quickly. I was amazed at the service I received. I would highly recommend to anyone going through a divorce!

It Is Possible to Remove Stress from a Divorce.

First and foremost, I found that I had a lot to learn about the divorce mediation process. I did not exactly know what the role of the mediator was or if we would still have to go to Court. However, after taking this route, I now know how collaborative the process can actually be, and that it is possible to remove stress from a divorce. I can’t even begin to imagine how difficult the process might have been without going through divorce mediation. Lani and Pamchal were phenomenal. They were enthusiastic and positive, yet still very direct with the subject matter and knowledgeable of the community property issues we had to deal with. My ex and I had three mediation sessions with them, and Lani and Pamchal were really in sync working together. The earlier reviewer was absolutely right – they are really on top of things in their communications. They prepared all of our documents for us, and were always available if we had any questions or comments about the wording. Again, I can’t imagine how expensive or stressful the process might have been if we had went to court, or had to pay attorneys by the hour, or had to write up our own court documents. Lani and Pamchal at the Center for Mediated Divorce made the process better in every way.
