My ex-wife and I engaged Mary Halbert as a mediator for our divorce and we could not be happier. She was knowledgeable, pleasant, made a very complicated process easy to understand, was sensitive to cost, and everything proceeded exactly as she led us to expect.
In particular Mary was very sensitive to when one of us showed signs of worry and immediately zeroed in on the the relevant concerns and relieved them or offered alternatives.
I recommend her highly.

Mary Halbert has been my colleague for more than two decades. We are both members of the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts (AFCC) which includes attorneys, mediators and therapists. I recommend Mary Halbert as a family law attorney and parent coordinator because of her integrity, knowledge and experience. Mary's ability to keep the focus on the best needs of the child is what makes her exceptional. She is able to maintain a calm, consistent approach to conflict resolution in high conflict custody cases. She is truly outstanding in her field.

It's hard to write a review for Mary, because she seems like a very nice and reasonable person, and I imagine that she's a good attorney. She's a terrible parent coordinator, however. I couldn't agree more with the comments written by the other reviewer.
I worked with Mary for 2 years, and found her to be as non-responsive and unhelpful as the other reviewer did. She was unwilling to make difficult decisions, and her lack of follow through was disappointing. After two years, she couldn't even get my email address or children's names right.
Confused by Mary's approach to our case, I spoke with two other families who were working with her, three highly respected family law attorneys in Marin and a mental health professional who happened to be working with a family who was also using Mary as a PC. ALL of them also felt that Mary is quite ineffective as a parent coordinator.
