Diffuse, Determine, Diagnose: Taking On The Issues In Your Divorce

When we get married, we expect it to be for a lifetime. When the marriage ends, we can end up questioning our self-worth, feeling insecure and being frightened of the dynamics in our lives. Because emotions run high, and can exacerbate an already tender situation, Melinda Weerts Law, PLLC, uses a unique approach with our clients.

When meeting with her clients — whether during the initial meeting, during a negotiation, or when appearing in a courtroom — Ms. Weerts employs the diffuse, determine, diagnose method to identify what is driving all parties' behaviors, and attempt to de-escalate the situation, returning the atmosphere to equilibrium. Simply put, she diffuses the anger and fear, determines the issues at hand, and diagnoses a remedy to the problem.
