Gail F. Jansen

I have worked as an attorney in Tucson, Arizona, for over 25 years, concentrating on the area of family law for 25 years. Collaborative Law is a good fit for my style as a family law attorney. I listen thoroughly to all the concerns of my client, and maintain open communication. I value integrity and honesty from all parties. My goal is to achieve a settlement of all issues that is comprehensive and fair. I advocate for my client an agreement that promotes healing, and sets a positive tone for the future. I am particularly concerned that the needs of children in domestic cases are given the highest priority, and that the best interest of the children is the foundation of the agreement reached regarding custody, visitation and child support.

Sarah Wright

Sarah Wright has practiced law in Tucson since 1999. Upon graduation from the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law, she practiced at two of Tucson's largest and most prestigious law firms, Snell & Wilmer, L.L.P. and DeConcini McDonald Yetwin & Lacy, P.C. In August, 2006, Sarah founded a boutique law firm, which is now Wright & Wright PLLC, where she focuses her practice on domestic relations and mediation.

Sarah's philosophy in handling domestic relations cases is to resolve most cases short of litigation. In her experience, the emotional and financial toll a family endures in a fully litigated case is not productive. Further, they lose control over the outcome. The collaborative model fits well with Sarah’s approach to domestic relations cases, creating an environment where the possibilities for successful resolution are maximized and her clients are making informed decisions with the assistance of the collaborative team. Sarah is a member of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals and has mediated family law cases since 2007. Sarah also is appointed as a settlement judge pro tem at the Pima County Superior Court. In her free time, Sarah loves to spend time with her family, travel and hike.
