Description of Practice

This Mediator is Certified
Mediation in person and mediation online use different paths to reach the same goals: restoring peace in the family through confidential, collaborative agreements. Divorce mediation offers divorcing couples a way forward with dignity, to an agreement that meets your needs for: parenting plans, child and/or spousal support, division of assets and debts, or modification of existing orders.

As a mediator, I assist families in negotiating their way respectfully through family issues resulting from major life transitions: pre- and post-marital agreements, divorce, business difficulties, elder care issues, and more. Online mediation has more flexible hours. In-person mediation should be available again soon.

Professional Background

I focus exclusively on mediation, online or in person. I have attended hundreds of hours of mediation trainings since 1990. As a California mediator, I have mediated family and divorce issues since 2006. Before that, I practiced law for thirteen years. My legal experience includes service in the US Navy JAG Corps and as a Special Assistant U.S. Attorney, as Assistant County Counsel in Jackson County, OR, and as a family lawyer in Jackson County, OR.

Experience

My first mediation training in 1990 changed the way I practiced law to a more collaborative style. I left the practice of law entirely in 1996 to focus on mediation. I have attended over 600 hours of training with some of the best trainers in the business, and have mediated 250+ cases. Most of the mediations are for divorce, but I have also mediated pre-marital agreements, adult family/elder issues, and claims related to family-owned businesses. I offer both online and in-person mediation.

Approach

My approach to mediation is respectful and pragmatic. I work online or in-person, helping clients to find common ground from which they can build their agreements. For divorce mediation, the label that best suits my style is either "pragmatic" or "facilitative". For elder /adult family mediation, I tend more toward the "transformative" end of the mediation spectrum. I will choose any tool or process that seems likely at the time to help the clients meet their mediation goals.

Fees

My hourly fee for online mediation is $220/hr. The usual range for a comprehensive divorce mediation with a marital settlement agreement is $2,860 to $3,630 (without minor children) or $3,300 to $3,960 with minor children. Please inquire. A limited scope package fee for divorce mediation is $1,760 without minor children or $2,200 with minor children. Limited scope packages provide some certainty as to cost and help with your marital settlement agreement, but they assume that you are basically in agreement on most issues. Please inquire. Premarital conversations can be hourly, or a set fee for an agreed amount of time. Please inquire.

Other Information

Online appointments are available most days, most evenings until 9:00 (after the kids are in bed - no commute needed!) and most Saturdays. In-person mediations will be available again when the pandemic slinks away. To get started, we'll schedule free individual telephone consultations for both/all parties and then a free joint session to practice using ZOOM and to review the Agreement to Mediate.
