During her career in family law, Ms. Stassinopoulos has represented both men and women in family law matters, and she has also represented children when appointed by the court in high-conflict cases. She has incorporated Collaborative Divorce into her practice with the hope that it will reduce the negative effects of litigation on children and families.
