Professional, friendly and excellent service!
Allan is highly recommended. He helped me put together my will and important documents that I needed to revise after my divorce. These are the types of things you know you have to do, but always put off and Allan made it a very easy to understand process. He is a great communicator, very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions.

Thanks For All You Do!
On your wedding day one doesn't have the intention that a divorce will be in your future. Well the future is here and here I am. If you are in that situation and in need of divorce mediation, Allan Baron and Amy Beth Baron are there to guide you through this difficult process. They help you come to an agreement which is fair to both parties in a comfortable and unbiased setting. They were always accessible to answer all my questions and there were many! I would highly recommend the Baron's to anyone in need of divorce mediation. Thank you Allan and Amy!

Highly recommend this professional.
There is no question that divorce is a traumatic life event, even under the best of circumstances. Being able to rely on Amy & Allan's experience and guidance through this process allowed us to create a in-depth, equitable and flexible agreement that maintains a strong mutual respect for one another. I would highly recommend Baron Law to anyone considering mediation. This husband & wife team are professional, caring, comprehensive, and take the long view for creating a new relationship. They helped put process and expectations around a situation filled with anxiety. Sometimes your happily ever after turns out to be different than what you imagined but being able to turn to professionals like Amy & Allan to help find the best solution for all parties involved was absolutely invaluable.

Divorce Mediation
Allan Baron was very helpful during our divorce mediation. He was caring and professional during the entire process. His knowledge of the financial aspects of divorce was very helpful, especially when it came time to discuss and fill out the paperwork and the financial terms of the divorce. Even though divorce is stressful, his knowledge helped to ease some of the stress and concern. Payment for services rendered were made very clear, and there were no extra or surprise fees. He helped explain what was going to happen at each step in the divorce process to both of us, so we both felt that we were included at each step and we knew what was going to happen. Going into our court date, we felt really prepared and everything went quickly and smoothly. I highly recommend Allan and Baron Law & Mediation.

A wonderful combination!
The baron's are an amazing team! They have a true gift for mediation, they navigated my ex-husband and I through a sticky divorce agreement that both side walked away feeling good about. We spent a fraction of the cost and time then by going through the traditional methods and were able to work through issues alot better than each being represented by our own attorney. The special combination of this husband and wife team truly work so that all sides feel represented. I highly recommend their services.

Excellent attorney
Alan and his wife/legal partner, Amy, provided me with the confidence to proceed with my divorce. He is the most competent and compassionate lawyer I have ever met. His knowledge of the legal system and the topic of divorce is excellent. I understood everything he said and answered my questions willingly. I will use him again.
