I have expanded my practice and am now offering mediation services in the area of family law.

I completed 40 hours of mediation training in July 2016.   I believe my mediation training, as well as my participation in many successful mediations, my experience as a family law attorney, and everyday experience as a spouse and a parent give me the skills to effectively mediate your client’s disputes.

They are several mediation techniques; however, I do not believe mediation is a one size fits all. In my experience, I find that a combination of facilitative and evaluative techniques work best in family law matters.  I do not believe it is my job as the mediator to tell the parties what to do or recommend a particular outcome; instead it is to facilitate negotiations between the parties and, using a more evaluative approach, point out the strengths and weakness of one’s case and analyze the costs versus benefits of proceeding to court.  The primary goal is to assist the parties in reaching an agreement that is to their mutual satisfaction.

I hope you will consider my services and allow me the opportunity to assist you and your clients with your mediation needs.
