Ditchen & Associates Law Firm

Ditchen & Associates Law Firm was established in 2001 by Meredith W. Ditchen-Oakley.

At Ditchen & Associates Law Firm, we understand that legal needs impact clients emotionally and financially and often have a long lasting impact. Customer service is an oft forgotten art which is practiced daily at Ditchen & Associates Law Firm.

We are responsive to our clients needs. In transactional matters, we are courteous and timely. In disputed matters, we explore in each case an early resolution to the dispute through alternate dispue resolution and cost effective methods of settling the case that reduce stress and the uncertainty of litigation.

When an early resolution is not possible, we put our experience to work for you with a dedicated team of attorneys and legal assistants who collaborate for the best possible outcome in your case. No matter which path your case follows, we have the tools to help see you through to a resolution that will help you move on to a brighter future.

In our role as counselor and advocate, we will help you evaluate the impact of legal decisions in your case and help you choose the path that fits your goals and plans.

In the arena of legal transactions or disputes, individuals often feel overwhelmed and fearful of the uncertainty that may lie ahead. Our goal is to help our clients carefully and thoughtfully navigate the uncertainties and provide individual attention and care.
