Mendel Colbert & Associates, Inc.
Experienced Anchorage Family Law Attorneys

Mendel Colbert & Associates, Inc. has been helping Alaskans resolve their legal issues for over twenty-five years. We work with clients throughout the state, from Anchorage and the Mat-Su Valley to remote villages in rural Alaska. Our practice emphasizes all areas of family law and all types of appeals, both civil and criminal.

Whether our clients are building their families through partnership agreements or adoption, or facing the prospect of divorce, we provide skilled and compassionate representation. We understand that the reconfiguration of a family creates many questions and concerns, and we make it a priority to offer our clients the support and answers they need.

We listen to our clients and help clarify their needs, so that we can help them explore and understand all of their legal options. We are skilled negotiators and strive to minimize conflict as we help our clients resolve their family law matters. To this end, we offer a range of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services, including collaborative divorce. Should negotiation not be in our clients’ best interests, we also have extensive experience in litigating family law cases. No matter what path a client chooses, we are always available to explain, advise, and support them through the process.

Mendel Colbert & Associates, Inc. is proud to offer a depth of experience and a quality of representation that is unmatched in the Anchorage area. Despite the number of cases we’ve handled, we never lose sight of the fact that each case is life-changing for the client living through it. If you need an advocate who is both skilled and compassionate, contact Mendel Colbert & Associates, Inc. to learn how we can help you.
