Reason. Respect. Grace

Family Law

LeyGalFinding Reason, Respect & Grace (4).png


Our first priority in any family law case is the children. We are a father/daughter team with extensive experience as both attorneys and parents, and advise with the children's best interests in mind throughout the entire case process. 

We resolve disputes through negotiation, mediation, the collaborative process, or trial before a judge. We pride ourselves on getting results that protect client dignity and uphold standards of reason, respect and grace.

If the need arises we have a network of advisors to help with mediation and guidance throughout the litigation process. Because these times can be very emotional, solid advice from a financial planner or consultant, Certified Public Accountant or bookkeeper, business /asset valuator, counselor or family and relations therapist can provide the right advice at the right time.

The Meier & Barlow approach to family law cases is comprehensive and collaborative. We walk with you through every step of the transition your family is making. We'll sweat the details and keep you in the know so you can focus on the big picture with the confidence of knowing that you’re not alone.

We are experienced in alternative dispute resolution strategies such as mediation and arbitration which are particularly effective in family law matters. If an agreement cannot be reached or if other circumstances force the issue, as experienced litigators, we will protect and advocate your position in court.
