FORESTER FAMILY LAW offers out-of-court options for couples seeking a quiet, calm, and quick divorce in California. Working as arbitrator, private judge, consulting attorney, and litigation concierge, attorney NEIL FORESTER blends creative ADR methods with discrete advisory counseling to help clients resolve a divorce, parenting dispute, or other family law conflict — outside the courtroom confines.
The firm was launched amid the COVID-19 lockdown and resulting backlog of cases in California’s judicial system. This surreal scenario is ripe for a reset of the divorce legal process. By operating virtually and empowering clients with savvy and affordable substitutes, FORESTER FAMILY LAW aims to open the options in a divorce marketplace stagnated by traditional lawyering. There’s never a good time to get divorced, but a silver lining of the coronavirus pandemic is that couples and counselors alike have reason to be more sanguine about their cases.
A recovering litigator with 16+ years of family court appearances, NEIL applies expertise and insider perspective to arbitrations and private judging solutions. When motives are aligned, he encourages collaboration, collective hard work, and co-created outcomes by families who relish control of their next normals.
NEIL is a Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and a Certified Family Law Specialist through the State Bar of California’s Board of Legal Specialization – elite designations that underscore his dedication to the practice of family law and level of professionalism in the field.
