Roxanne C. Shank has considerable experience assisting couples in achieving family law settlements via court proceedings as well as by way of negotiated agreements.
Roxanne understands that every family is unique and is strongly committed to advocating for her clients to achieve individualized solutions that meet the needs of the parties in family law disputes as well as those of children who are affected by the consequences of a separation.
Roxanne is a strong proponent of the collaborative process in instances where both parties are committed to negotiating towards an agreement that is in both parties’ best interests.
