    Attorney James R. Skirbunt is an experienced litigator and a pioneer in interest based negotiation and processes alternatives to litigation. Deciding the process as to how a marriage ends is a critical choice for every family. The choice of process will not only impact the outcome, but also the noneconomic and emotional costs a family will incur through this  transition. Jim has the experience and knowledge to provide you with all of your options and to obtain superior results in whatever forum you choose, whether litigation, mediation, Collaborative Divorce, or Cooperative Divorce.

Jim has a reputation for being creative and he brings those ideas to the table whether as a problem solver or as an advocate. He is a certified family law mediator, and the Founder of the Center for Principled Family Advocacy. He has also represented high-profile clients in courtrooms throughout Ohio in complex high stakes litigation involving business valuations, the tracing of separate property, and the enforcement of pre-nuptial agreements. With 40 years of legal experience, Jim is effective in obtaining results for clients in the courtroom and at the negotiating table.

 Jim has been invited to address judges and magistrates at the Ohio Judicial College and he has frequently lectured for numerous organizations, including the Ohio Academy of Trial Lawyers, the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and Bar Associations throughout Northeast Ohio.
