Karen Sampson, Esq.

I help parties identify and settle divorce issues in a civil, good faith and respectable manner. I am an experienced Mediator, Family Law Attorney & Collaborative Divorce Attorney. I have successfully mediated many divorce cases & focus on helping the parties resolve their legal issues so they could move forward with their lives. I firmly believe in the Mediation Process and the benefits it offers to the parties and the family. It helps the parties communicate, keeping them in control of their own destiny. It also helps to reduce legal fees. Changing times,family blends and situations often call for “outside the box” thinking, employing different mediation strategies & ideas that may not have been thought of just a few years ago.

I am a Past-President & former Board Member of NJAPM. I co-founded and served as Vice President of the NJ Council of Collaborative Practice Groups. I am a co-founder, Past-President & former Board Member of South Jersey Collaborative Divorce Professionals. I am on the NJ Roster of Family Economic Mediators & have served as a matrimonial early settlement panelist for the NJ Superior Court.
