Attorneys and litigants may opt to rely on Alexandra, serving as a Private Judge, to resolve all of their family law issues or merely a subset of the issues (while the remaining issues may be resolved by the public court system).

The perspective and guidance LLM's attorneys offer can be the difference between a matter that moves forward, and one that gets bogged down and becomes stressful, expensive, and time-consuming.

Alexandra’s successful career in litigating complex family law cases renders her uniquely qualified to help settle these cases even if it’s on the eve of a scheduled lengthy trial.
