About Us

Being an attorney for over 27 years, I have been almost constantly frustrated with the litigation and court process. I witnessed clients struggle with huge financial costs, emotional wear and tear, fighting, and unpredictable rulings that characterize the litigation process.

Since 2007, I have been using my legal background, my counseling skills, and Mediation training to help divorcing couples move forward with their lives. I believe that families can emerge from a divorce better than they were before. I have mediated well over 1200 divorce cases with almost every case finding a mutually acceptable settlement and avoiding court and the stress of litigation.
