About me

Our commitment is to help our clients divorce respectfully and efficiently. We offer a divorce mediation process that keeps you focused on the tasks necessary to completing your divorce, and that allows you to create the necessary substantive agreements that best suit your interests and values. Our process is more cost effective than court because you control the process and stay focused on an outcome that works for you rather than one imposed by a court.
We also offer mediation to develop parenting plans, dispute resolution, and arbitration on all family matters.
