  • Leslie Kyle Howell

    Mark Baer has a lot of success in his mediation and collaborative divorce practice because he is committed to peacemaking. He tells his clients the reality of the situation rather than just saying what they want to hear. This results in agreements being signed rather than expensive and stressful court appearances.
