Description of Practice

I have been practicing family law for 17 years in Colorado. in my experience as a trial attorney I have found that clients are much more satisfied when they are able to come to their own agreements and not put the fate of their family into the hands of a judge who will barely know them. I have been mediating family law cases for the past four years and find it very rewarding. My rates for mediation are low so that more people will be able to use my services and avoid litigation.

Professional Background

I have been a family law attorney since 2002. Before that I was a paralegal for 8 years for a family law attorney.

Experience

I have been mediating for four years as I have been moving my law practice from litigation to mediation.

Degrees

I have a BA degree in psychology and a JD from the University of Denver where I attended law school. I also have certifications in mediation and child family investigator work.

Training

Dates    Trainer(s)    Title   
2017    Phoenix Strategies    basic mediation training 40 hours
2019    Pepperdine University    family law mediation 18 hours

Approach

I believe that mediation should be available and affordable for all. The decisions to be made in a family law case, decisions about children and finances, should not be left up to a judge who will hardly know you when making his/her decision. I believe strongly in mediating early on in every case to try to resolve it before things go on or get worse (which happens frequently).

Fees

My rates are $175/hour with a two hour minimum and I do require that it be paid prior to mediation. That is how I can keep my rates so low.
