About Me

Merrie-Roxie Crowell has 28 years of marital and family law experience as a practitioner, mediator and Family Law Magistrate.  Ms. Crowell received her law degree from Stetson University College of Law in 1984 and was certified as a family mediator by The Florida Supreme Court in 1991.   Since 2007 Ms. Crowell has limited her practice to Alternative Dispute Resolution.


Ms. Crowell was a member of the pilot group of experienced mediators who met regularly at the Dispute Resolution Center,  a group created by the Florida Supreme Court, to develop the initial procedural rules and certification qualifications for all Florida mediators as well as language for the comprehensive revisions to Florida’s mediation statute (F.S 44,  implemented January 1, 1988).  She served on the Florida Supreme Court Committee on Mediation and Arbitration training from 1990 to 1998 and was also a member of the Florida Supreme Court’s Family Court Steering Committee.


Ms. Crowell has also been active in the Florida Bar and its Family Law Section.  She served on the Family Law Section Executive Council and numerous section committees. She was a member of The Family Law Rules Committee of the Florida Bar for 11 years and is a former chair of the Florida Bar Unbundled Legal Services Monitoring Committee.


As a former secondary school teacher, Ms. Crowell found mediation training rewarding and for many years was a trainer for the Family Mediation Certification Course provided by the University of South Florida Mediation Institute and the American Arbitration Association.  She also provided Certified County Mediation Training for the Sixth Judicial Circuit.
