Divorce mediation provides a safe, impartial and respectful forum that empowers both of you to openly discuss your unique circumstances, needs, and concerns; to ask questions; to consider creative options; and to develop a settlement agreement that both of you agree is fair and reasonable. You--not attorneys, court personnel or judges--are in control of the process.
The mediator remains strictly impartial, favoring neither party while ensuring that both parties are treated fairly. As an added safeguard, you are encouraged to have an attorney review your final settlement agreement before you sign it.
Mediation focuses on solutions, not problems, on cooperation rather than conflict therefore, mediation is more private and flexible--and less stressful, less time-consuming, and less expensive--than the other divorce options.
As an attorney, accountant, and marriage and family therapist with many years of experience, I can help you address all three dimensions of divorce: legal, financial, and emotional. My practice is devoted exclusively to divorce and post-divorce mediation, so I have the experience and the professional focus necessary to help you successfully complete the divorce process. Furthermore, I have been divorced twice, and have experienced the challenges of the divorce process, as well as the challenges of co-parenting and being a step-parent.
