Description of Practice

This Mediator is Certified
You and your family will benefit from choosing Mediation to resolve your family law issues. Mediation provides divorcing couples and parents the opportunity to resolve their issues out of court, keeping control of the decisions for themselves (and not a judge), EVEN when they have difficulty communicating and/or do not see eye to eye! My goal as a mediator is bridge the communication gap, help you explore and create ideas and options for resolution, and formalize your agreements. My practice is dedicated to efficient and reasonably priced resolutions to enable you to resolve your disputes at a reasonable cost and focus on your future!

Professional Background

I have the experience and insight not only from mediating but from 23 years as a family law attorney and collaborator. I practice only Family Law and I am dedicated to helping parties find peaceful and cost effective resolutions to their family law disputes.

Experience

I have been resolving divorce matters through Collaboration and Mediation for over 10 years. My practice is primarily focused on Mediation.
