The Law and Mediation Office of
Margaret A. Nicholson


Margaret Nicholson is dedicated to assisting clients who find themselves struggling with the pain of separation and divorce. She is a strong yet compassionate advocate with experience in resolving family disputes through litigation, negotiated settlement, collaborative divorce and mediation. 

With a law and mediation practice located in Somers, New York, in northern Westchester County, Ms. Nicholson provides quality legal representation and devotes a high level of personal attention to her clients.  She recognizes that clients often feel helpless and paralyzed as they attempt to navigate the legal system, especially when it concerns family issues where the stakes are so high. 

Ms. Nicholson’s goal is to lay the groundwork for settlement by identifying areas of agreement rather than throwing up legal roadblocks which only serve to prolong the divorce process and intensify its financial and emotional toll. 

Divorce Mediation and Collaborative Divorce Lawyer in Westchester NY

As a result of her collaborative and mediation training and experience in representing children in family court and in matrimonial proceedings, Ms. Nicholson recognizes the need for a non-adversarial approach to dissolving a marriage. Her experience in the courtroom has imbued her with a profound empathy for clients who would rather avoid participation in contentious court proceedings.  Especially where children are involved, families are in need of options that are tailored to their individual interests and are sensitive to their needs. 

Ms. Nicholson has witnessed the emotional toll litigation takes on families and has therefore recently limited her practice exclusively to divorce mediation and collaborative divorce.  These alternative dispute resolution processes offer clients the opportunity to take control giving them the freedom to fashion creative settlements while protecting privacy and minimizing legal fees.
