Collaborative Law Mediation Unbundled Divorce Services

I am an Attorney here at Ousky Yates Law Office. I was born in Orlando, Florida, and after meandering my way across the country with my family, landed in Minnesota. Despite living in Minnesota for over 20 years, I still adamantly maintain my status as a "Minnesotan, kinda sorta." However, I married a cool guy I refer to as a "hardcore Minnesotan", and as such have come to peace with the fact that a winter parka will forever be an essential piece of my winter wardrobe. When I'm not at the office, I can be found managing the never-ending craziness created by my spunky, spirited, sassy 10-year-old daughter and 6-year-old son. Add in an aging, obstinate Labrador, a husband who owns his own small business, and a batch of wonderful in-laws who live down the street, my life is pretty full. And I like it that way. I have a knack for sifting through overwhelming and confusing situations and for focusing in on what matters most. Indeed, it's what I love to do. For myself, my friends and family, and for my clients. My practice focuses exclusively on family law matters, including divorce, custody issues, and adoption. I wholeheartedly believe that each client's situation is unique, and therefore, process choices should be tailored to meet the specific needs of each family. As such, I help clients reach resolutions using Collaborative Law, mediation, traditional negotiation, and a variety of unbundled legal service options. I also have this freakish (or so it seems to some) common-sense approach to financial/budgeting matters and enjoy helping clients with these issues post-divorce as well.
