After seeing firsthand the stress and emotional pain inflicted on my clients and their families involved in traditional court-based litigation, I decided to practice law in a more transparent, supportive, and empowering way.
Too often, the traditional court-based process of resolving a family law matter such as a divorce makes a difficult situation worse. It heightens conflict. It takes away your power to make decisions. And it makes your personal matters public. I provide effective ways for you to avoid these negative impacts, by providing collaborative and mediation services for:
• Couples who are divorcing or dissolving their domestic partnership and need to reach a resolution on issues of dividing property, paying child or spousal support, and sharing child custody;
• Unmarried couples with children who need help creating or changing a parenting plan;
• Couples intending to marry or live together who want to create a prenuptial or cohabitation agreement;
• Consulting and coaching services for individuals who are in mediation with other mediators.
