Hon. Linda Pearce Prestley, ret.
I conduct both in-person and zoom mediations. In addition to practice areas listed above, I am experienced in mediating blended family issues, educational issues, and as issues effecting the elderly. My goal is to assist you in addressing the disputes that often arise in these situations and to make sure that you prepare the proper paperwork and agreement to submit to the court.

Degrees and Experience
I have a Bachelors Degree, a Master's Degree in Education and a Juris Doctorate Degree from the University of Ct School of Law. I was a practicing attorney for 11 years and was appointed to the bench in 2000. I served on the bench from 2000 to 2019 when I retired as a judge, worked with Martha's Vineyard Mediation, Mediation Works, Inc., and VESTA and began a private mediation practice.
I am a member of the Bar in Connecticut, a member of the Massachusetts Council on Family Mediation, a member of VESTA, and a member of the Connecticut Council for Non-Adversarial Divorce. I have both basic and advanced mediation training as well as years of experience settling cases in court.
I am available to mediate cases across the state of Massachusetts as well as in the states of Connecticut and Rhode Island.
My fee is $475 per hour in 2-3 hour increments or $4750 for a full day mediation.
