Experienced Mediator Concentrating in Family Law Matters.
I have been mediating family law disputes for more than fifteen years, including divorce, custody, visitation, parenting plans, alimony, child support, property division, paternity, guardianships, removal/relocation of children, and post-divorce modifications. I also have more than twenty years of experience as an attorney and am able to use my knowledge and familiarity with the Courts to assist mediation clients in fashioning their agreements.
