Description of Practice

This Mediator is Certified
I will act as a neutral facilitator to mediate you and your spouses’ dissolution of marriage. As the mediator I will assist you and your spouse to arrive at agreements which address your individual family’s concerns and needs, out of court, allowing you to maintain control over the process and the agreements made. I will make sure that all legally required paperwork is completed and facilitate discussion of options for terms of settlement and provide legal information. I also am a trained and experienced collaborative divorce attorney. I also act as a consulting attorney for client’s who are in mediation and want the assistance of an attorney’s legal advice which appreciating the benefit of a negotiated agreement. The only certainty in the result of a dissolution of marriage is a negotiated agreement between the parties rather than a court deciding your dissolution of marriage. I also provide Collaborative services for Premarital Agreements.
