Profession
Attorney and Mediator
Comments on Profession
I believe that the court system is ill-equipped to fashion lasting solutions to problems encountered by families, especially where children are involved. Mediation provides the parties with a forum in which they can decide for themselves what arrangements will best suit their needs.

Have received mediation training in all aspects of family law, including child custody and visitation, child support, spousal support, property division, and domestic violence.
