South Shore Divorce Mediator - Norwell and Braintree
I am an experienced family law attorney and divorce mediator offering confidential divorce and post-divorce mediation in Norwell, Braintree and Quincy - Marina Bay. I work with couples going through all phases of separation, divorce and post-divorce.
I am committed to assisting families who want to minimize the financial and psychological impacts of separation and divorce. I am passionate about the mediation process because I know it works. I bring my practical working knowledge to the table and guide you through the divorce until you appear in court. I can write your Separation Agreement, assist with a name change and schedule your divorce hearing.
Testimonial: "Initially, I was very apprehensive about using a mediator for my divorce. However, after meeting with Judy for an hour or so and getting comfortable with her, I agreed to go forward. Throughout the process, Judy was able to listen to our concerns, answer my questions and get us to think about long term consequences of what we were doing. Most importantly, she genuinely cared about us and our sons. She did not take sides, but listened to us and our concerns. She helped us come to grips with the realities we were facing and she guided us through the most difficult process of my life. I would encourage anyone contemplating a divorce to speak with her first before proceeding."
