Whether you are seeking a separation, divorce, parenting plan, prenuptial agreement or modification of a current agreement, I, as your neutral mediator, will help you and your spouse, fiancé or co-parent navigate through the issues that need to be resolved before a final agreement can be reached.

I call the process “Constructive Mediation” because we work as a team to find an agreement that, based on your unique situation, best prepares you to move forward. To ensure a durable and well-designed agreement, we work collectively to understand each of your interests, identify concerns, generate options and test whether and how those options can work for you. I am an experienced matrimonial attorney, but I will not provide either of you with strategic legal advice. Instead, I will provide the necessary legal information to empower you and your partner to make educated decisions that will form the basis of your final agreement. Based on my experience, I may make suggestions or point to potential problems. But only you and your partner will make the final decisions.

Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. Point out to them how the nominal winner is often a real loser—in fees, expenses, and waste of time. As a peacemaker the lawyer has a superior opportunity of being a good man.
— Abraham Lincoln

Constructive Mediation is designed to avoid the psychological and financial warfare of litigation. It offers an environment in which each person feels comfortable expressing their needs—and confident that those needs are heard and addressed. Avoiding litigation is especially important when finances are tight and when a continuing relationship, such as a co-parenting arrangement, exists. Mediation gives you an opportunity to learn to communicate more effectively, helping prepare you for the challenges of continuing to raise your children together.

Once a final settlement is reached, I can draft your final agreement. If a divorce is sought, I can prepare and file the documents required to finalize your divorce.
