During that time, she has helped countless families deal with impending divorce, child custody disputes and post-divorce life. Our firm’s goal is to connect with good people who are going through tough personal times. It’s the whole reason our firm exists. and why it continues to flourish to this day. We care about our clients, and we want to do everything we can for them within the law and be creative and solve problems.

Barbara Volk Madere has accumulated many hours of specialized training over the years. This allows her to mediate in family law cases and to participate in collaborative divorce proceedings. She is trained in domestic abuse and mental health issues, and conflict resolution. She is also a Louisiana Board Certified Family Law Specialist.

These are two important aspects to family law that many people may not even realize. Collaborative divorce and mediation can be less stressful and more efficient than traditional divorce, and we have the knowledge and capability to aid people who are considering one of these routes.

The most important aspect of our approach to family law cases is our one-on-one time with clients. We inquire about your life and your circumstances, gathering as many details as we can to maximize your chances of a successful resolution. We will stay in contact with you throughout your divorce, providing the personal and professional lawyer you deserve during this difficult time.
