Description of Practice

Mediate For Life Divorce Mediation Center recognizes and appreciates that in a divorce there may be just one couple but there are two separate and distinct voices. At Mediate For Life, the Divorce Mediation is Co-Mediated by our highly trained and experienced staff. The mediators draw their strength, wisdom and experience from over a 25 year history of maintaining a general practice of Law and the stewardship of an individual, couple and family psychotherapy and counseling practice. It is the voice of each spouse which needs to be heard with respect and dignity. At Mediate For Life, our Co-Mediators guide the couple through the haze and maze of the divorce process to the point where the couple is ultimately in control of the decisions that will effect their lives; help themselves retain their financial integrity and insure that their family members will be safe and healthy.
