Licensed Illinois Attorney with a law practice that includes family law, mediation, Guardian Ad Litem, collaborative law, and immigration law. I am a Certified Mediator with training regarding domestic violence and its impact. Mediation is a cost-effective way to problem solve and resolve disputes. The mediator has no stake in the outcome and the process is balanced and equitable. Mediation is a voluntary process through which parties come together to negotiate a mutually acceptable agreement with the assistance of an impartial mediator. The parties maintain control over the decisions affecting your life rather than accepting a settlement imposed by the courts. If you chose me as your mediator, I may not represent either party in a divorce proceeding. If you would like to engage me as a mediator, please obtain the consent of your spouse and contact my office to schedule an appointment.
