Each family law case is unique, personal and very emotional for those involved.

She brings compassionate, careful and clear communication to each case to help facilitate a positive and productive outcome.
Family Law Mediation
Lesa Koski uses her strong communication skills and ability to connect with her clients in her family and divorce mediation cases. As a mediator, Lesa can help both parties find areas of compromise on the issues important to the divorcing couple or co-parents. Issues commonly and successfully addressed via mediation include division of assets/debts during a divorce settlement, child custody or parenting time schedules, spousal or child support, and changes that come up after a divorce is final. It is important to note that if Lesa works with you as a mediator she cannot also work as your family law attorney. These two roles are independent of each other.
Benefits Of Mediation
Choosing mediation over a court battle offers many important benefits including:
● Less expensive: Using a mediator costs less than a lengthy court battle. You pay for a mediator’s time for meetings with you and your divorcing spouse, rather than for waiting time in court and court appearances.
● You control the outcome: A mediator will solicit input from you about your priorities, concerns and goals for the mediation sessions. You are empowered to be a part of the process and the solution.
● Models positive behavior for your children: Mediation is less adversarial than a court battle and can show your children that you are able to work with your ex-partner for the good of your family.
● Faster outcome: Mediation can achieve resolution in weeks or months, as opposed to months to years. This means that you and your family will be able to move forward more quickly.
● More flexible: Resolution can be tailored to your unique needs and situation. Not only can the outcome be more flexible, but meeting times and dates can be too.
