He also represents client in domestic violence matters.
Mr. Ragone is a trained Collaborative Attorney who believes that the way you and your spouse proceed through the end of your marriage may significantly affect your and your family’s happiness and satisfaction post-divorce.
As an alternative to traditional litigation, the collaborative process provides a healthier transition to post-divorce life for the parties and their families. By focusing on the parties’ goals and all the financial, mental and emotional difficulties a divorce inevitably brings forth, the parties in the collaborative process are often able to craft a more durable, satisfying resolution to their divorce without the negative effects often seen after a highly contested litigated divorce.
