Lawyer, Mediator

As a mediator and collaborative lawyer my job is to keep families out of court by helping them divorce or resolve other disputes in a non-adversarial way. I help people reach agreements respectfully, creatively, and cost-effectively, so that they can leave the process feeling their voices have been heard and their agreements are fair.
