Types of Mediation Cases Desired
Family: All Issues, Family: Child Custody/Visitation, Property/Assets/Alimony/Support I welcome not only divorce-related cases, but all family conflict matters. I have past work experience as an elder caregiver, have studied and written on mediation in the context of eldercare disputes, and as such I accept elder decision mediation cases. I invite any family facing a conflict to contact me for a free consultation. I firmly believe that looking into mediation can only serve to help parties in crisis. I also accept non-family mediations, such as workplace conflicts.
