Holistic Family Law

Holistic, Child-Focused Solutions for High-Conflict and Transitioning Families

Holistic Family Law is a small, boutique law firm offering a personal touch with a holistic approach. Attorney Anastasia C. Jaster founded Holistic Family Law after having endured the stress and conflict that resulted from her own parent’s high conflict divorce. Later, she experienced the challenges of finding her place in a blended family.

These life events have fueled her passion to alleviate the negative impact of separation and divorce on children, the emotional struggles suffered by all parties, and the financial hardships that undoubtedly arise.

Since every family struggles with co-parenting conflicts and challenges, they become amplified when a family goes through a big transition like divorce, separation, or remarriage. There is no reason to feel shame when these life events occur.

The Holistic Family Law team is all too familiar with these struggles and is compassionate about assisting families and children dealing with these and other Adverse Childhood Experiences. Our goal is to minimize the impact of family law matters on children and offer clear solutions to help parents and couples cope when life happens.
