Mediation, Family, Arbitration

About Me

My practice is limited to family law (divorce, separation, premarital agreements), with an emphasis on Collaborative Practice and serving as a neutral mediator. I help clients to reach fair and equitable resolutions that respect the needs of both parents and the needs of their children. I believe clients should have every opportunity to craft their own solutions when their family undergoes a transition, which leads to better results and minimizes the damage of divorce and separation.
