    The mediation process can help you resolve disputes without going to court. In a mediation proceeding, a neutral third party (a mediation lawyer or mediator) meets with you and the person you disagree with. Mediators are trained to find mediation solutions in legal disputes, including divorce mediation and business disagreement mediation. The mediator acts as a facilitator, helping you negotiate until a solution is found. Mediation is the most informal process for dispute resolution and is usual

Satisfied Divorce
When it comes to Divorce, Mrs. Savoy knows her stuff. She did not sell me a dream and tell me what I wanted to hear. She was direct and honest which is what I appreciated most. The knowledge and experience she had was very valuable to my case. I would recommend Mrs. Savoy for any Divorce hands down.

Simply one of the best.
I interviewed at least 10-12 attorneys for my divorce. Due to the complexity of my situation I wanted to make sure that I hired the right attorney especially having worked in Family Court for many years and seeing how important it was to have good legal representation. Ms. Savoy blew me away with her knowledge, straight forward manner and most of all her ability to make you feel like she got your back. This for me was paramount. Ms. Savoy is a straight shooter who hates to lose and is honest about what she feels the true merits and possibilities of your case are. She doesn't fill your head or waste your time with fluff regarding your case like some attorneys just to keep the fees coming in. Oh, and don't think she's a push over either like my ex-wife's attorney thought. She is very sweet and down to earth but an aggressive attorney in defense of her clients. Like I said, I have work in Family Court for almost 20 years and Ms. Savoy is simply one of the best.

An attorney with a hand on truth and sincere knowledge of the law
This Attorney worked for me in my situation. I had no understanding of how to dial with my problem but C.Savoy, Esq. spoked with me in clear terms and explained how she could assist me and what it would take to get the job done. I felt save trusting my personal affairs with her and believing that she would not stop until the manner was cleared up. C. Savoy,Esq. is knowledgeable in her field an very trustworthy in her conduct and never made me feel it was a bother to keep me informed .

Would Not Recommend
I retained this attorney to handle my divorce and would NEVER recommend her to anyone. If I could give a rating less than one star, I would. She lied to me to get me to settle my case, then changed the agreement causing me to lose a substantial amount in marital assets. When I refused to sign the final agreement, she lied to the judge telling the judge that I had Buyers' Remorse. Once I signed the settlement agreement her representation of me declined. Her actions in the handling of my case were more in favor of my ex than her advocating for me. I can handle a legitimate loss but not one caused by lies, especially from someone I have paid to protect my interests. I have spent a lot of time trying to undo the financial damage she has caused me to no avail. She missed deadlines and lied to me about the law. She might be effective in a simple divorce with consenting parties but in a complicated matter such as mine. I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS ATTORNEY!

She was my adversary on a difficult divorce matter which resolved itself in part due to her professionalism. It is always helpful to have a working relationship with your adversary. Your client is the benefactor in the long run because it saves them time and money when you do not have to litigate every aspect of the case."
