Michelle M. Raymond
Attorney Michelle M. Raymond, as the head of the firm’s Domestic Relations Practice Group and shareholder of Doherty, Ciechanowski, Dugan & Cannon, P.C., focuses her practice in mediation, collaborative law, and divorce litigation. She assists her clients through their difficult legal and personal times with a focus on the prevention of future legal entanglements. Attorney Raymond provides mediation and litigation services for all family-related disputes, including, but not limited to: divorce, child support, post-divorce, parenting plans, paternity, separation, estate or guardianship, and non-traditional family issues. In addition, she works with families in the areas of adoption and parent coordination. Attorney Raymond works with a team of professionals to guide her clients through the often stressful and overwhelming decisions involved in the divorce process. In addition to the legal aspects of family law, she focuses on helping her clients maintain and regain control over the decisions that affect their lives, integrity, and confidence all in a confidential setting.
Attorney Raymond is a trained and experienced mediator who has helped clients mediate family and other disputes since 2000. Her mediation services offer a cost-effective alternative for family, probate, civil, and business disputes, and provide parties with more control over the process. She also practices collaborative law in divorce & family matters and has since 2003. Collaborative law is an alternative dispute resolution process in which both parties and counsel contract to negotiate without court involvement. It provides clients with the assurance of having legal counsel involved throughout the divorce process with the added advantages of having financial and child/divorce coaches directly involved.
DCDC has a full-service team of professionals to assist the Domestic Relations Practice Group's 6 attorneys with all aspects of family law, including complex financial and business matters and real estate sales. DCDC has over 14 attorneys practicing in estate planning, probate litigation, commercial and residential real estate, business, civil and business litigation, landlord tenant/evictions, and criminal law. This depth of practice areas helps broaden the services we can provide our family law and other clients.
