Melinda Eitzen


From the Lawyer (Sponsored)

Following the footsteps of her father, Judge Merrill Hartman, Melinda Eitzen learned the importance of excellent judgment and integrity. Dedicated exclusively to family law, Eitzen combines these skills to resolve the emotionally charged area of family law in the most effective way possible.

Eitzen’s cases include divorces (large and small estates), custody modifications, and pre- and post-marital agreements. She is a forerunner in collaborative law, a non-court amicable approach to resolving cases.

Eitzen serves as a mediator and writes and teaches, including co-authoring “Divorce the Collaborative Way. Is it the Way for You?” and “Considering Divorce? Critical Things You Need to Know.”
