The attorneys at Kales & Kales, PLC (Jonathan L. Kales and Amy Grillo Kales) understand divorce is, by its very nature, a stressful and difficult time for the individuals we represent. We strive to work cooperatively with our clients, to build personal relationships and to listen to our clients' needs. We work diligently to find the most appropriate and cost-effective avenue to achieve our clients' goals. We are experienced in the following methods of divorce:
- Collaborative Divorce: In Collaborative Divorce, spouses work together, with their attorneys and other professionals (financial specialists and/or mental health professionals), toward reaching an efficient, fair, comprehensive resolution of all issues. While each client has built-in legal advice and advocacy during negotiations, the attorneys cannot go to court or threaten to go to court. When a settlement is reached, the attorneys prepare and process all papers required for the divorce.
- Mediation: In mediation, an impartial, neutral individual (the mediator), who is trained in negotiation, conflict resolution and communication skills, facilitates settlement talks between spouses. Additionally, an attorney-mediator may provide legal information; however, he/she may not provide legal advice or be an advocate for either side. When a settlement is reached, the mediator prepares a draft agreement for review and editing by the parties and their attorneys.
- Uncontested Divorce: An uncontested, or "kitchen table," divorce, exists where the parties are able to resolve all issue themselves. In such cases, Kales & Kales will draft a settlement agreement for our client and prepare and process all papers required for his or her divorce. We charge an affordable flat-fee for our services, which we set based upon the case's complexity.
- Traditional Litigation: In litigation, parties rely upon the court system and judges to resolve their issues. Unfortunately, spouses often come to view each other as adversaries and may incur substantial financial and emotional costs. However, when there is no better option, Kales & Kales, PLC will go to court and zealously advocate for you, your interests and your family.

News, Tips and Information
Kales & Kales Collaborative Divorce Case Makes CNN
Just six months after their divorce, they come across as warm, well adjusted, and still caring very much for one another. How are these folks able to do this?
Partly because, while they are different people and had difficulty coexisting under one roof, they’re both kind and gentle, and still fond of one another; and, partly because they chose to divorce via the collaborative process. The collaborative process strives to help divorcing couples avoid the ramping up of conflict that is frequently associated with traditional, litigated divorces; instead, collaborative attorneys assist their clients with creating long-lasting enduring solutions for themselves and their families.
In the case of the Whites: they still live in close proximity to one another; when Margie was recently in a fender bender, she called Dick before reaching out to anybody else; Dick still fixes things at Margie’s house, the home they shared together for many years; etc., etc. They divorced “the right way.”
AMY AND JONATHAN ARE A COUPLE OF POWERFUL FAIRFAX DIVORCE LAWYERS, SORT OF ANYWAY
What are some examples: Barack and Michelle Obama, Jay-Z and Beyoncé, James Carville and Mary Matalin, Mia Hamm and Nomar Garciaparra, and Amy and Jonathan Kales. What? You say Amy and Jonathan don’t fit?
Au contraire mon ami, there’s an article in the Metro Offices Newsletter that says we do, well sort of: we’re tagged as a collaborative processing, mediating, uncontested divorcing “power couple” in the most recent edition. Best piece of journalism we’ve read in a quite a long time.
