COVID-19 Update: Otterson Law & Mediation is open and still working for our clients. We also remain accessible to the public for inquiries and consultations. To comply with CDC recommendations and local mandates, we will not be meeting anyone in person, but will be fully available by phone, email, and US mail. (Mail may involve a 24 hour delay.) We can provide multiple document transfer options (if you don’t want to send by email). We offer phone consultations and video conferences in lieu of office visits.

We hope you and your families stay healthy and find ways to cope with the pandemic related restrictions.

Legal Advice

We provide legal advice on an hourly basis without requiring payment of a retainer. This is also referred to as "unbundled" legal services.

This is useful if you are working out a settlement or court filing on your own and want it reviewed. You may also want advice on how to get started. In this approach, the lawyer does not enter an appearance for you in court, and is not responsible for anything except the advice given on your specific questions. The court and other parties may be unaware that a lawyer is involved.

We had a tough adoption that seemed to drag on with the state. The staff at Otterson Law were tremendously knowledgeable and a huge help to us. The adoption portion was all done quickly and we were very pleased with with their work. We will be using them in the future. Sima T.

Otterson Law & Mediation just finished the adoption of my daughter, Melissa. They did it during COVID and around all the state closures. I was happy with the communication and also with the timeliness of getting it finished. Reklats E.

Otterson Law office handled the adoptions of my niece and nephew in Alaska. They did a great job addressing all of the concerns and making sure that things were handled well. I am glad to have my niece and nephew in our family thanks to them. Trevor B.
