Margaretha Gravett practices in all areas of family and matrimonial law, residential real estate transactions, and estate planning, wills and trusts.

Margaretha is the consummate family law attorney. She is well-known for the high level of professionalism, knowledge, skill, and integrity with which she not only leads her clients through their marital difficulties, but also assists them with their real estate and estate planning needs after divorce or separation.

Margaretha considers it her paramount responsibility to safeguard her clients’ interests and obtain their goals. This involves carefully listening to the client and helping the client distinguish the essential issues from issues of fleeting importance. By creating solid goals and a strategy to achieve them, Margaretha helps her clients start their lives anew.

Margaretha is a skilled negotiator. She always seeks, in the first instance, to achieve amicable, non-litigated resolutions to her clients’ family law disputes. She is known for her ability to find creative and advantageous solutions to seemingly insurmountable obstacles, and to placate even the most difficult spouses and their attorneys. She is also a trained divorce mediator and collaborative attorney who can help couples work together to resolve their differences effectively and efficiently.

When reason does not prevail, Margaretha aggressively litigates her clients’ cases in court. She has extensive experience in high-conflict custody and parenting disputes, as well as complex equitable distribution, business valuation, child support, and spousal maintenance (alimony) issues.
