In a series of recent mediation sessions, Joan delivered everything I'd hoped for--great subject knowledge and experience, the ability to manage the parties in a difficult, acrimonimous case, compassion, and stamina. Additionally, she followed up in a very effective, hands-on way when the deal threatened to blow up a few days after the mediation ended. She has great instincts. I enthusiastically recommend Joan as a mediator.
Joan is a magnificent mediator. She listened carefully to our situation and was able to properly explain to us how to see the divorce from each others perspective. She explained how things would work budget wise and how the courts would probably view things if we were to go to trial. She made a difficult time and process smoother and easier than I thought it could be. She didn't just come in listen and tell us what to do, she educated us on the process and what we could expect down the line.
Even after the divorce was finalized she was an invaluable source of information and advice on how to handle difficult situations as they arose. I could not recommend her more highly.
Joan helped us arrive at a divorce settlement that is reasonable. She managed to stay in the middle rather than take one person's side. She understands the emotional, practical and legal issues of divorce so we were able to move forward during a difficult time.
