Description of Practice

I mediate divorces, alimony and property division issues, post divorce modifications and parenting plans as well as out-of-wedlock maters. For couples wanting to reconcile, I offer mediation-to-stay married services. As a mediator, I help my clients focus on solutions that best meet their needs. As a compassionate listener, I can help clients better understand what are the important issues. As a skilled lawyer, I provide helpful information. My clients usually call me because they want an “amicable divorce” even if they are currently having trouble talking with their spouses.

Experience

I have received formal training in the following fields: Family Mediation Collaborative Law Marital Mediation Non Violent Communication Compassionate Listening Parenting Coordinator

Degrees

J.D. University of Colorado (Boulder) (1987) B.A. Brown University

Approach

Dispute resolution should focus on problem solving - not finger pointing. I help clients find common ground.

Fees

First 1/2 hour mediation information session is no charge. Call or e-mail my office for hourly fees.

Other Information

I am a lawyer that provides mediation, mediation representation, collaborative law, and lawyer-to-lawyer negotiations. Because I no longer enter appearances as a divorce litigator in contested divorce, my clients and their spouses feel a sense of comfort that my approach will be settlement focused. And it is settlement focused and the best way to resolve the case.
