Description of Practice

My goal is to help YOU retain control over your personal legal issues, rather than requiring a judge to determine what is in your family's best interests. My practice focuses on family law issues. These include divorce, adoption, custody, visitation, child support, and parental rights. I am a mediation-friendly attorney and will review your settlement agreement created through mediation. I am also a collaborative law attorney who believes in the non-adversarial process for resolving family disputes.

While the primary goal of mediation is to resolve differences, mediation also promotes communication and cooperation which allows you to control the decisions that affect your life. Mediation is frequently less costly than litigation. Mediation benefits children and others involved by reducing conflict. Mediation can often be completed in less time than litigation allowing you to move ahead with your life.

I can show you that there is an effective alternative to settle differences rather than a costly courtroom battle. In Divorce and Domestic Partner mediation, couples can control the decisions that affect their life, family, children, finances, and business. Blended Family Arrangements, Parenting Plans, and Support Agreements address the changing needs of modern families which exist outside of marriage. Conflicts between extended family members, between neighbors, and within organizations can be addressed in the mediation process as well.
