At the Law Office of Sam Byrd, I am committed to helping my family law clients resolve their issues as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible so they can carry on with their lives.

I emphasize settling as much as possible through negotiation rather than litigation because it gives you control over the outcome of your case. However, some cases can not be settled through negotiation and must be taken to trial where the Judge will make the decisions for you. I work with my clients to achieve a mutually beneficial settlement whenever possible because it save money, reduces stress, and allows all of the parties involved, including children, to settle into their post-divorce lives as soon as possible.

If you have been in a relationship that involved domestic violence, the mediation session can be conducted with both parties in separate rooms or the courts in Tennessee can waive the requirement to attend divorce mediation.
