About Me

DSC_0464

Thank you for visiting my site. I am Dominique Harvey, the founder of Resolution Law. I am a fully bilingual Mediation Lawyer with more than 20 years experience in Family Law. I understand the pain involved with divorce and treat all of my clients with compassion.

During the first half of my legal career, I practiced Family Law in the traditional, adversarial manner, advocating fiercely before the courts for my clients’ rights.  I soon realized that regardless of how “successful” I had been in my representation, at the end of the day, my client walked away battered and bruised, victim of an adversarial court system, where even the “winners” felt more like “losers”.

I  spent the second half of my career working within the Court system, and witnessed firsthand, from the other side of the courtroom doors, the same toll taken on the parties who went through the adversarial process.

Marriages don’t have to end this way.  There is a better option.  Relationships may end, but parenting is forever.  Mediation is a proven alternative to couples who are separating but don’t want to spend all of their savings on legal fees and don’t want to embark on a battle that can only end in bitterness and cause harm to the family.

I have given up on litigation as an option, focusing on Mediation to help my clients create the arrangements that truly work for them.  You and your spouse should decide what’s fair for you and your family, not the Court.
