The process of dealing with family law cases is complicated for everyone involved. Most cases take a bit of time to get finalized, but they can also be costly, especially when both sides cannot agree on any issues that need to be resolved.
Thankfully, mediation is commonly used in Tulsa and surrounding counties as a remedy for issues in cases that need to be resolved. Utilizing an experienced mediator can keep the case from escalating to the point of needing a judge to resolve issues for the parties.
The Firm on Baltimore has extensive mediation experience, helping thousands of parties in all manner of family law cases. We know that mediation can be an effective tool that is more amicable for resolving most cases. A mediator is used as a guide and a legal go-between for both sides of the case. No one can force someone to agree in a mediation, but it often times reduces conflict and deescalates issues.
Family lawyers use mediation as a voluntary process that happens outside of the courtroom. It is a process that allows people who are going through any family law case to discuss and reach agreements on a range of issues. All the problems related to the case can be resolved with the help of a neutral third party, the mediator. Examples of issues that are handled in mediation that will need to be finalized in most settlements, include:
Common mediation issues include:
• Child custody
• Visitation schedule’s
• Child expenses
• Child support
• Spousal support and alimony
• Division of property and debts
Is Mediation a Good Option for Me?
Mediation could have several benefits for you, especially if you and your former spouse can be cordial with each other. Mediation also provides both sides with equal power to develop the terms of their divorce, rather than having the courts decide for them. The cost of separation can be reduced through mediation, and the divorce process will often be completed more quickly if agreements are made in mediation. Also, any discussions between both sides and the mediator are confidential, so there will not be any public record of the events.

Grant is one of best lawyers and all around good guys that I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with. We met a couple of years ago at The Outsiders house here in North Tulsa made famous in Francis Ford Coppola's film The Outsiders (1983) based on the novel by Tulsa Author S.E. Hinton. We were in desperate need of an attorney and had very little financially to work with when Grant stepped up and offered his services free of charge! He's since become one of my best friends and has worked tirelessly for the last 2 1/2 years making sure we have everything that goes into building a home into a museum in order. Thank you, Grant Brown! You, and your family are tremendously giving and wonderful folks. I couldn't have done this without you. Stay Gold, my friend!

I have been a Private Investigator in the Tulsa area for 17 years and have worked with a lot of attorneys. I can assure you that The Firm on Baltimore stands out as one of the best. They will handle your case professionally and competently.
Grant and his staff are awesome at what they do! After 9yrs of games these folks stepped up and dug deep to get me my kiddos! They are easy to work with and they truly do make you feel like you are their family! It was a battle but every time the other side wanted to play a game, the folks at The Firm on Baltimore had already had that angle covered.
Grant has been our attorney since 2005. He has always been there to handle all proceedings, court dates, and endless back and forth communications with the opposing party in our custody case. Never once has he backed down or cease to fight for what was right. He is by far the best attorney Tulsa has to offer.
