We hope our friends, colleagues and clients are all staying safe. Badain & Crowder is mindful that we are all struggling during this time of unprecedented uncertainty. In accordance with the NYS mandate that all non-essential businesses temporarily shut down, we have closed our offices to in-person meetings and mediation sessions until further notice.

We continue to work remotely and are pleased to inform you that we offer confidential video-conferencing capabilities. This service is free and available to all of our clients for meetings that would otherwise take place in our office, including 4-way conferencing with opposing parties and their counsel as well as for mediation sessions.

We continue to be able to electronically transmit documents to and from clients as well as e-file documents in the Monroe County Clerk’s Office. In addition, to further ease the burden on attorneys and our clients, the Governor has issued an Executive Order permitting us to notarize documents transmitted to us electronically.

We look forward to providing our clients with the same outstanding legal services and timely responses notwithstanding these difficult circumstances. Our goal is to ensure our clients can easily reach us in a safe and secure environment as well as move their cases forward conveniently and with minimal disruption.

Thinking of all of you and sending our warmest regards,

A Better Approach To Divorce And Custody

Divorce doesn't have to be a long, drawn-out battle that leaves both of you wounded and drained. It doesn't have to cost you a fortune.

At Resolve Attorney Mediators of Rochester, part of the law firm Badain & Crowder, we believe in a better way. Our family law attorneys serve as mediators for couples facing divorce, child custody and post-divorce issues. We're dedicated to helping you reach a resolution that makes sense for your family.

Work Toward a More Satisfying Resolution

The legal system is fundamentally adversarial. In the typical divorce case, neither party wins, and both end up disappointed and financially drained.

Mediation is about empowering you to work toward a satisfying resolution.

A Compassionate, Understanding Approach

As experienced mediators and family law attorneys, our lawyers are ideally situated to guide you through the process ahead. Our role is to facilitate productive problem-solving discussions. We do that by:

  • Understanding your situation, including your goals and priorities.
  • Identifying opportunities for finding common ground.
  • Analyzing likely outcomes in light of New York law.
  • Proposing solutions through creative problem-solving.
