Lisa Smith

I mediate divorces, alimony and property division issues, post divorce modifications and parenting plans as well as out-of-wedlock maters. For couples wanting to reconcile, I offer mediation-to-stay married services.

Due to the current health crisis, I offer on-line mediation for the entire mediation session.

As a mediator, I help my clients focus on solutions that best meet their needs. As a compassionate listener, I can help clients better understand what are the important issues. As a skilled lawyer, I provide helpful information.

My clients usually call me because they want an “amicable divorce” even if they are currently having trouble talking with their spouses.

ADR Experience

I have received formal training in the following fields:
Family Mediation
Collaborative Law
Marital Mediation
Non Violent Communication
Compassionate Listening
Parenting Coordinator


Dispute resolution should focus on problem solving – not finger pointing. I help clients find common ground.
