Description of Practice

18 years of litigating family, criminal and civil cases has confirmed for me that the large majority of disputes in which my clients find themselves have a great potential for settlement when creative solutions are explored.

As a college student, I was fortunate to be chosen as the recipient of a travel-research grant, which enabled me to travel around the world in search of peaceful conflict resolution techniques and ideas. As a law student, alternative dispute resolution was a focus of my study and, as a practicing attorney, I have extensive experience in resolving legal disputes.

I am a NJ Superior Court appointed mediator in both civil and divorce matters and have had excellent success facilitating dispute resolutions for my clients.

The Center for Mediation & Balanced Living also provides other support services, including counseling and co-parenting workshops, as well as a variety of other integrative wellness-based therapies. Additionally, connected to the Center is Plum Yoga, which offers yoga, meditation, massage and a retail shop with various books on divorce and parenting. I take a holistic approach to the needs of my clients and strive to assist them through challenging disputes and on to a path of closure and healing.

I offer a 30-minute complimentary consultation to all new clients. Feel free to contact me for further information or visit my website at www.balancedmediation.com or like our Facebook page for information on upcoming events at the Center.
