Mesa Divorce Attorney Mary Ann Hess

"Divorce with Respect" is not a slogan it is an effective legal strategy for future-focused men and women who can see the big picture and rise above petty issues, in pursuit of a better life.

For more than 20 years, Phoenix and Mesa divorce and family law attorney Mary Ann Hess has effectively represented clients whose overarching objective is to put their failed marriage behind them and achieve negotiated, out-of-court resolution of their financial, parental and property issues.

With her direct, no-nonsense approach, attorney Mary Ann can help you:

  • understand your legal options,

  • make informed, well-conceived decisions,

  • avoid costly and unproductive legal maneuvering

  • utilize strategies designed to allow you not the courts to determine your future

  • gain a measure of cost certainty through a variety of legal fee options.

Mary Ann is committed to understanding your needs and to keeping you informed during each step of the process. You can rely on her for responsiveness, clear communication, direct answers and supportive guidance, and for dedicated and loyal advocacy on your behalf.

You would also benefit from her experience in the mediation of divorce-related disputes and in assisting divorcing parents of minor children as a Parenting Coordinator. Also, for persons who are contemplating marriage, Mary Ann can assist in the preparation of a premarital or cohabitation agreement, to spell out the parties' wishes and expectations in case of a breakup.

Family Law Litigation

For marital situations in which Collaborative Divorce (more below) is not an option, Mary Ann is fully experienced in all major aspects of family law, including:

  • Divorce

  • Paternity

  • Property division

  • Child custody and visitation

  • Child support

  • Spousal maintenance (alimony)

  • Post-decree modifications

Collaborative Divorce

Mary Ann's family law practice includes Collaborative Divorce, an innovative legal discipline designed to produce peaceful, client-directed solutions to the most difficult legal and emotional challenge that you may ever encounter. Collaborative divorce is a way for a divorcing couple in Arizona and other states to work as a team with their attorney and other trained professionals to resolve disputes respectfully, without going to court. Each party has the support, protection and guidance of his or her own attorney. But the attorneys, instead of going to battle against each other, pledge to work together in crafting an outcome that is fair to all.
