A leading family law attorney and founder of the Pinkham & Associates; A Professional Law Corporation, Douglas Pinkham, Esq., maintains a reputation for working with couples through divorce mediation or litigation quickly and affordably. Unlike many divorce lawyers, Mr. Pinkham achieves a success rate of over 90% in mediated divorces and provides full collaborative divorce services at considerably lower costs than the average cost for similar services in the Orange County area. Douglas Pinkham and his legal team handle divorce matters through Mediation whenever possible, but he also litigates matters when necessary. Mr. Pinkham is more than willing, and goes out of his way, to introduce an environment for settlement in every case he works on. Mr. Pinkham meets the individual needs and desires of couples by offering alternatives to the standard difficult, upsetting divorce process. During his years of practicing family law, Douglas Pinkham has learned that fighting between two parties during a divorce often accomplishes very little, and instead results in greater resentment and emotional pain. Mr. Pinkham uses novel, simple techniques to encourage open communication between couples to serve their mutual interests, including simple, open, honest and frank discussions, in his office or other common ground. These methods expedite the legal process and help individuals to identify what a divorce basically amounts to: a division of assets, finances, and responsibilities of the parties. Also, when children are involved, it becomes more important than ever to get the process completed faster, and with less discourse. In the family law business, experience means everything. Douglas Pinkham has worked as a family law lawyer for more than 12 years. He earned his Juris Doctor with honors from Western State University College of Law and continues to build his knowledge and expertise through involvement in the State Bar of California, the Orange County Bar Association (OCBA), the OCBA Alternative Dispute Resolution Section, and the OCBA Family Law Section. Today, for the convenience of his clientele, he has locations in Santa Ana, Irvine, and Newport Beach, California. For more information, visit http://www.pinkhamlaw.com.
