A bit about us

People going through divorce often get frustrated with the legal system because it's often focused on contentious litigation rather than addressing your particular concerns.

At Di Giacomo & Somers L.L.C., we listen to your needs, answer your questions and provide you with valuable information to make smart decisions. We use a collaborative approach to law — looking for answers and solutions instead of starting, or engaging in, unproductive debates with the other side.

Our attorneys are trained mediators, litigators and collaborative divorce attorneys. We will work with you to determine the best course of action. Whether that be mediation, litigation or collaboration, we will always focus on achieving the best possible outcome for you.


Divorce Litigation

Divorce litigation is the traditional, and least popular divorce. With divorce litigation, the attorney's present the case to the court. The courts hear the case and a decision is made regarding property division, child custody and support and maintenance. Litigation is often more expensive and offers you the least amount of control over the outcome.

Collaborative Divorce

Collaborative divorce is a voluntary alternative to litigation and is more cost effective. In this process, both parties retain an attorney. Parties work together to resolve each aspect of the divorce in an amicable way. This process promotes a positive and respectful relationship after divorce, which is best if children are involved.


Mediation is voluntary and the most preferred method of working through divorce. During this process a mediator helps the parties amicably work through, and resolve, all of the child related and financial issues of the divorce. Like collaborative divorce, mediation is more cost effective than litigation and helps you maintain control over the outcome.
