I am also Emily's friend and endorse her as a mediator as well as an adoption lawyer. Emily has been on the cutting edge of parenting law for as long as I have known her and is dedicated to solving problems for couples and families through mediation. Emily is also a great writer and has authored and/or edited a number of terrific Nolo Press books to help people get through a divorce, work with a mediator, etc. Emily is smart, fair, honest, reasonable, creative and is constantly striving to improve the practice of law and to improve the quality of the experience of those who use the legal system--with or without lawyers. Emily is truly a light in our community, and a leader.
