Phyllis Bossin is a dedicated and passionate family law attorney. She cares deeply about her clients and brings her passion, caring and skill to every case she and her associates handle.

Phyllis knows that the best path to resolution occurs outside of the courtroom where people can control their own outcomes. She brings her experience and expertise to settlement negotiations. When appropriate, Phyllis takes her cases to mediation. As a trained mediator herself, she can apply her expertise to help achieve resolution. Phyllis is also trained in collaborative law, another form of dispute resolution that involves a commitment by the parties to resolve their differences outside of the courtroom. Finally, as a trained arbitrator, Phyllis can serve parties and their counsel by arbitrating and deciding their cases.

However, when reasonable alternative paths to resolution fail, Phyllis is ready to litigate. As an experienced, persuasive, and successful litigator of family law, she brings decades of highly-honed trial skills to bear.
