Susan Amato is an experienced domestic relations attorney and mediator. Throughout her decades of practice in mediation, collaborative practice and litigation, she has made client satisfaction her first priority. She believes that when a couple enters a divorce process, it's important to support the parenting relationship, to preserve finances as much as possible and to work towards a successful post-divorce family system. This approach is the most positive and healthy way of addressing a very emotional and stressful time in your life.

Through her experience in marital and family law matters, Ms. Amato has represented hundreds of individuals in a wide variety of issues from simple to complex, relating to divorce, custody, domestic violence, and paternity mediation and litigation. She has an established reputation in dispute resolution with the focus of her practice on conflict resolution, particuarly mediation and collaborative law, and she offers these options to her clients as well as litigation.
