Description of Practice

As an attorney and a mediator, I help divorcing couples resolve property, support and parenting issues by agreement. Traditional litigation processes tend to feed and escalate conflict. I feel people are better served by maintaining control over results and managing conflict in a way that engages rather than divides. Since 2007, I've focused my practice on client centered alternatives to litigation including mediation and Collaborative Law process. A successful outcome begins with identifying your interests, needs and goals. Skilled communication moves the process forward. Agreements are made when needs and interests are met.
