Approach

Most clients have similar issues they need to address such as the house, the pension, and college education for the children. I therefore follow the tenet that mediation can be approached in fairly structured manner so as to minimize mediation fees, maximize the productivity of sessions by keeping clients focused, and expedite a resolution before the conflict is allowed to escalate. Nevertheless, I also believe that the process should also be flexible to properly address the uniqueness of each couple's situation such as different religious requirements, or the needs of a gifted child. I have a facilitative style with a true belief in self-determination; I also has an eye towards settlement and am glad to provide resources that can help clients move towards resolution.

Fees

We offer a free half-hour consultation so that you may decide whether mediation is appropriate for you. Alternatively, the first half-hour of the first mediation session is free. Fees are affordable and are on a pay-as-you-go basis at the end of each session, with no retainer. Payment can be made by check, money order, credit card (Visa/MC), or cash. Receipts are provided for all payments. The portion of mediation fees related to tax planning is usually deductible, if you prepare an itemized tax return. Please consult with your tax advisor for more information.
