Review Joy Rosenthal

About Me

I am a compassionate listener who stays focused on the bigger picture.
I am committed to helping you achieve the best possible outcomes for
your family under the current circumstances. My goal is to help ease
families through transitions or restructuring with a minimum of pain to
all involved by drawing on the strengths and values of my clients and
their ex-partners. I can be a vigorous advocate, but also see the value
that constructive relationships have in changing families.


 


It is an honor every day when clients trust me with some of the most
personal and painful moments of their lives. I love to help people
learn to resolve conflict in a way that meets their needs, but meets
the needs of others, as well. I love the notion that we do not have to
squabble over a piece of the pie - we can simply expand the pie! I am
lucky to be at the cutting edge, not only of the law that is
continually changing (particularly relating to LGBT families), but of
the processes of mediation and collaborative practice. This is a very
exciting time to be a lawyer, for I truly believe we can help each
other be better people.
