Description of Practice

Getting divorced and resolving family law issues involves transitions that are not easy. I am an experienced divorce mediator and family lawyer, and I will guide you through these transitions with compassion, treating you and your concerns with respect. We will work together, one issue at a time, to create solutions that work for you and your family and ensure that the focus stays on the healthiest process and outcome for you and your children. I use only non-adversarial processes—mediation and collaborative law divorce—which emphasize open, respectful communication. These methods of reaching agreements avoid the high costs, delays, and interpersonal conflict and stress that are typical of litigation through the courts. In addition to mediating divorces, I also prepare QDRO's, DRO's, and COAP's for division of retirement accounts in divorce. These are documents required by retirement administrators for your pension or 401k or other retirement asset to be divided. Even though your separation (divorce) agreement may specify how your retirement accounts are to be divided, you still need a QDRO or DRO before they can be divided.

Professional Background

I have been mediating divorces and doing collaborative family law since 2003.


JD, University of Pennsylvania, 1991 BA, magna cum laude, Brown University, 1987


I am efficient in helping parties come to agreement. I complete most of my divorce mediation cases for $2000-3500. I mediate my simplest divorce cases—no property, no children, and the couple are in agreement about getting divorced—for around $1500. I do many of my mediation cases for flat fees: 1) couples with a house but no children for $2000; 2) couples with children but no real estate for $2250; 3) couples with children and a house for $2750; and 4) couples with no real estate and no children for $1500. My hourly rate is $325/hour.
