At Kelsey & Trask, P.C., we work with families to resolve disputes relating to Divorce, Paternity, Child Support, Alimony and Custody, as amicably, quickly and cost-effectively as possible.
To achieve these goals, we offer both mediation and individual representation. Attorney Kelsey can assist both parties in reaching a resolution together as a mediator, or can represent
one party individually as counsel in litigation or in a Collaborative setting. Either way, we have the motivation to conclude your case as efficiently as possible because we recognize that ongoing disagreement or litigation is not a healthy situation for your family.
