When you hire BKR Family Law, you hire a devoted and responsive team with a diverse range of skills and considerable experience in Indiana courtrooms. Although our attorneys are regarded in the community as dedicated litigators, we always explore alternative dispute resolution options to avoid litigation expenses for your family law issues.
We Provide Creative Solutions to Family Law Challenges
We help develop effective options for our clients and their families to reach fair and reasonable resolutions. As a team of highly experienced advocates, we collaborate to provide creative solutions to family law issues. Our team members have served as Guardians ad Litem, argued appellate issues to the Indiana Supreme Court and Indiana Court of Appeals, and presented on a vast array of family law topics locally, regionally, and nationally. Working together, we provide support, understanding and objective advice for the challenges our clients face.
Compassionate Litigators Focused on You, Your Family and Your Children
We are people and parents first, and lawyers second. We are trustworthy, compassionate, and committed to limiting emotional and financial costs when possible in achieving our clients’ goals. As the majority of our team members are parents, we recognize that daily parenting challenges, when combined with the stress of divorce, can be overwhelming. We help clients make the best decisions possible for their families, especially their children.
Avoid Emotional and Financial Costs with Alternative Dispute Resolution
BKR Family Dispute Resolution is the first comprehensive Alternative Dispute Resolution group focused on family law in Central Indiana. Our attorneys understand that family law litigation is often financially and emotionally draining, therefore we always encourage clients to consider alternative methods, such as collaborative law, mediation, parenting coordination and arbitration to avoid additional expenses. Every BKR professional believes each family is the best judge of what’s best for its own future, and when provided the opportunity, are capable of crafting sensible, lasting agreements that allow them to live full, peaceful lives. Our extensive experience allows us to offer compassionate and efficient counsel to help you make those important agreements to benefit you and your family.
