What Our Clients Say
I highly recommend Melissa Salfi at Crossroads Law. She made this very stressful and emotional time in my life such a smooth process. She is very knowledgeable, compassionate, timely and efficient! Her writing skills are amazing, I can’t say enough about the experience I had and the positive outcome for me in the end was because of her. She helped me immensely, going above and beyond in such a professional yet friendly manner.
Mat comes highly recommended from one who has walked the journey of divorce. As I started my own journey, I interviewed a number of lawyers and chose to work with Mat. He listened attentively and then gave advice that, while not always what I wanted to hear, was what I needed to hear. He has the patience to sort through the tangled details of a messed up matrimonial situation, and has the skill and knowledge to ask questions that focused and guided me through the legal process and the emotional devastation that divorce brings. I recommend Mat highly, he is skilled, patient and above all, ethical.

Family law mediation offers a voluntary, less formal way to resolve disputes like divorce or child custody. A neutral mediator guides the process, facilitating discussions and helping parties work toward a mutually acceptable agreement. The process includes initial meetings, expression of concerns, and drafting a settlement, which can be made legally binding. Mediation is often quicker, less costly, and less stressful than court proceedings, but its suitability varies by case.
