Barbara A Burr
Family matters. Separation, divorce and all family matters often are difficult times filled with conflict and confusion. Through good counsel and careful guidance, Barbara help sclients manage the conflict, minimize the pain and move through these difficulties to the most positive and peaceful future possible.
Barbara helps each client choose the best dispute resolution process for their goals -- whether those goals be to minimize the parties' pain; protect the emotional health of the children; preserve financial stability; control the timing of the process; protect the parties' privacy. She then works with clients in a partner-like relationship to obtain and share information, evaluate options and make sound decisions.
In this way, Barbara guides each client through the challenges of conflict and difficulty to the relief of respectful and realistic resolution, always keeping in mind that family matters.
