Description of Practice
At Skylark Law & Mediation we use our knowledge and training to find fair solutions that help bring an END to disputes. We are a FAMILY that helps other families resolve CONFLICT.
My primary practice is Collaborative Divorce and Mediation, assisting parties to settle family legal issues in a supportive environment outside of the stress and cost of court.
Skylark Law & Mediation, P.C. (formerly Kelsey & Trask, P.C.) - since 2008; Stevenson & Lynch, P.C. - of counsel (& formerly associate) since 2004
I attended the MCLE Family Mediation Training in 2010. Since that time I have built a successful mediation practice with a focus on family conflict. Every member of Skylark Law & Mediation is a trained mediator and I am an MCFM Certified Mediator, a designation reserved for members of the Massachusetts Council on Family Mediation with significant mediation experience, advanced training, and education. I now participate as a trainer in multiple Massachusetts mediation trainings in family mediation.

We represent and serve individuals and businesses primarily in family legal disputes. We aim to resolve disputes and reduce conflict through interest based negotiation and active listening of both sides of the dispute. Anyone who wants to resolve their dispute in a way that is fair and respectful of everyone involved can benefit from mediation or the advice of settlement counsel. Our mediation services allow individuals, families and businesses to have control over the outcome of their dispute in a private and cost-efficient manner. We believe that anyone experiencing family conflict can be helped by the experienced settlement-minded counsel in our firm.
Attorney/Mediators in our firm range from $200 per hour to $400 per hour. Flat fees are available for some services.
