These are the principles that guide our family law practice:

  • What you hear is as important as what you say.

  • Every client deserves our best effort.

Sato & Sato offers full legal representation or legal support (unbundled legal services) in the following family law areas: divorce or dissolution, custody disputes, child support, domestic violence or stalking protective orders, and premarital agreements.  These areas are discussed below.

If you are interested in scheduling an initial consultation in any of these areas, you may contact our office by phone (258-7286) or e-mail (
assistant@satoandsato.com).  During your consultation we will discuss the facts of your case, the court process for your type of case, your goals and desires, and what steps we can take to attempt to achieve your desired result.

Traditional Divorce and Custody Cases

Sato & Sato offers full representation in divorce, custody or child support cases.  This can include discussing the court process, filing motions for interim orders, negotiating settlements, or proceeding to trial.  For more information about our services, or to discuss representation, you may contact our office by phone (258-7286) or e-mail (assistant@satoandsato.com).


Collaborative Family Law

For people wishing to avoid litigation, keep their divorce or custody dispute private, or resolve their case with counsel but out of the courtroom setting, Sato & Sato is proud to offer representation through the Collaborative process.  Collaborative Law is an alternative to the traditional court-based adversarial method for resolving divorce and custody cases.  In a collaborative case, each party retains a collaboratively-trained attorney who assists them and offers legal advice through an established process to reach an outcome acceptable to both parties.  The outcome is obtained without court involvement or decision-making, although once decided the attorneys will prepare the appropriate paperwork and file it with the court.  Jeannie Sato is a member of both the Alaska Association of Collaborative Professionals and the International Association of Collaborative Professionals and offers full representation in collaborative cases.  For more information about our services, or to discuss representation, you may contact our office by phone (258-7286) or e-mail (assistant@satoandsato.com).

Domestic Violence and Stalking Protective Orders

Sato &Sato offers full representation at all stages of the protective order process, from the initial filing to representation at ex parte or long-term hearings.  For more information about our services, or to discuss representation, you may contact our office by phone (258-7286) or e-mail (assistant@satoandsato.com).


Unbundled Legal Services

If you choose to represent yourself in any of the above-mentioned family law areas, but would like to discuss your case or review documents with an attorney on a limited basis, unbundled legal services is the appropriate method of representation for you.  Sato & Sato offers unbundled legal services in all the family law areas discussed above, assisting clients to represent themselves in court.  Some clients prefer to start with unbundled legal services, with the option of transitioning into full representation if the case becomes more complicated or adversarial than expected.  If you would like to learn more about the unbundled legal services provided by Sato & Sato, or to discuss representation, you may contact our office by phone (258-7286) or e-mail (
