About Alisa Cummins

About me

My mission is to provide outstanding, personalized representation, focusing on the long-term effects of family law disputes.  My Firm is devoted to the area of domestic relations and family law.  As a small firm, we are uniquely suited to afford client matters the individualized attention they deserve.   We represent both men and women in all areas of domestic relations, including divorce, child custody and access, child support, spousal support, domestic violence, separation and property settlement agreements, marital settlement agreements, grandparent and third party custody and visitation, and adoptions.


I am a certified mediator and am trained in the practice of Collaborative Family Law, both alternative forms of dispute resolution designed to create solutions without the need to go to court.  While my goal is to assist our clients in reaching an amicable resolution of their family conflict, I zealously litigate those matters which cannot be resolved alternatively.


Additionally, I have the privilege of providing representation of minor children as appointed by the Court.
