Family Roster Mediator Details

2008
I can provide full mediation facilities, including free parking, wheelchair access, a boardroom, break-out rooms, wifi, computer access and a full kitchen.
I have been a lawyer since 1985. For the first 20 years of my career, I practiced within the traditional litigation oriented system to try to resolve problems for my clients. It became increasingly obvious to me that our adversarial system is usually not the best way to solve problems, and almost never the best way to solve family related problems. As a result, I began exploring ways of resolving disputes out of court. I became fully trained as a Mediator and a Collaborative lawyer. I am also trained and qualified to interview children and prepare Hear the Child Reports. I am completely convinced that mediation is better in almost every way than litigation: it is quicker, cheaper and most importantly, it is a positive and satisfying experience for most clients. Instead of further breaking down the relationship between parties, mediation often results, not only in a solution, but in a renewed sense of goodwill between the participants. I am committed to using my experience as a litigator, combined with my training and experience as a mediator to efficiently, inexpensively and with the least amount of acrimony, guide clients to a solution.
