Comments: I am interested in providing alternatives to clients who are involved in divorce, custody and support disputes, as well as in civil litigation. I want to provide a road map to these clients to show them the way to settle their differences in a manner that satisfies their broad goals while treating all with respect. I want to model that behavior for them and I want to work with like-minded colleagues who do the same. I no longer want to be involved in destroying families or individuals, rather I want to help clients restructure their families and resolve civil disputes so that future interactions take place in peace and with dignity.
