Description of Practice

This Mediator is Certified
Mordechai Rhine is a Family/ Relationship Mediator with over 20 years of community Rabbinic experience. Our practice, CARE-Mediation, is open to family relationships, divorce, and workplace relationship issues.

Mediation is a style of communication in which the mediator facilitates dialogue which can allow you and your concerns to be heard.

Mediation is a process of self-determination. This means that you have great input in the process, and will grow and be empowered throughout the process.

It is generally assumed that divorce is the most challenging example of mediation, as it is the breakup of a most intimate relationship, and often has many related considerations including children and assets. With CARE-Mediation you will experience a process that strives to set you in a good position to put your best foot forward to a beautiful life ahead.

Interestingly, we recognize that particularly when there are children, even after divorce the family will continue to interact. We therefore are especially sensitive to life after the divorce. We strive for better outcomes by emphasizing long term planning and communication facilitation and strategies.

Approach

I am focused on online dispute resolution, but will, when possible, meet with clients in person, as well with a blended approach. I generally meet with each party for a brief free consult, and then for 30 minutes with each before a joint session. I am curious and attentive, and it is important to me that each party be heard and key interests are identified.

Once a tentative agreement is reached, we collaborate with a local attorney, and when applicable a Beth Din, to ensure that all legalities are attended to.

Fees

$300/ hour. Feel free to contact us for a free phone consultation.
