Reliable Advocacy In Family Law Mediation
You have a family law dispute on your hands but you want to avoid going to court. At Fig Law, P.L.L.C. Attorneys at Law, we can help you achieve solutions through an alternative dispute resolution method called mediation.

Founding attorney Heather Fig has more than 20 years of legal experience and has assisted hundreds of clients in using mediation to do what is best for themselves and their families.
Mediation: What To Know
Mediation allows two or more parties to sit down with a neutral third party called a mediator. The mediator works with each side to facilitate a satisfactory outcome on major issues. The benefits of mediation include:
- Lower costs
- Faster solutions
- More control
- Keeps issues private
- Maintains amicable relations
Many people prefer to mediate a divorce, child custody dispute or other challenging family legal matters whenever possible. If you are interested in mediation, our lawyers can sit down with you to discuss whether it is a good fit. We have a robust family mediation practice in which we uphold our clients’ best interests while working with the mediator and the other party to reach mutually satisfactory compromises.
Backed By Extensive Litigation Experience
Even with a skillful attorney and an experienced family mediator, not every problem can be mediated. If you go through your mediation sessions but the other side is not compromising or offering a fair solution, it might be time for a trial. We are trial-tested, reputable litigators. Attorney Fig is a former criminal prosecutor for the state of New York. She has litigated complex cases throughout the state and understands what it takes to win a trial.
