Biography

Mediation versus Litigation
I am here to help you with your Uncontested, Pre-suit, Pro se Divorce Mediation. It is a voluntary process chosen by couples that have decided to divorce, but who want to avoid the financial and emotional costs associated with retaining attorneys and litigating their disputes.

With a deep appreciation for the nuances of civil litigation and alternative dispute resolution, I promise to mediate your case with integrity and compassion.

I am a Florida Supreme Court Certified Civil Circuit Mediator, Florida Supreme Court Certified Family Mediator, and Qualified Advanced Arbitrator, among other certifications. Licensed to practice law for almost forty years, I am extremely proud to be AV rated Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell for the highest level of professional Excellence.
Video-conferencing is available through Zoom technology during these difficult times. Please call with any questions.
