Meet Alison Forche of Forche Law

My name is Alison Forche. I serve on two committees - programming and communications.

Tell us about your business.

I am a family law attorney trained in mediation, parent coordination, co-parent coaching, as a guardian ad litem, and as an early neutral evaluator. I focus my practice specifically on family (custody) and eldercare mediation and conflict resolution.

What inspired you to get into your business?

I began practice as a family law attorney and loved helping clients transition through this major life change. I stopped practicing to care for my premature child and help run my husband's business. I decided to start my business and focus on family mediation and conflict resolution because I believe the family should have the opportunity to work together to transition through these life changes and should define the best path for their future rather than a court.

What are your three best practices or best tips that every NAWBO member needs to hear?

  1. Be curious, be open-minded and be present every day.
  2. Define your priorities and make sure your decisions serve/honor your priorities.
  3. Get involved - the most authentic opportunities to make great friends, to learn valuable tools and advice from amazing people and to enrich your life both professionally and personally is to be actively engaged.

What does your future look like?

My future is continuing to grow my business and learn how best to help those I serve, to savor my son's final year of high school and guide him as he makes important choices for his next stage of life and to help my husband grow his business.

What do you do in your free time?

I enjoy reading, exercising outdoors, practicing yoga and meditating.

What is your company website?

I have not created one at this time - my email is forchelaw at gmail.com.
