Attorney and Mediator
Mediation is a wonderful way to resolve conflict efficiently. It allows you to avoid the financial and emotional hardship of going to trial and gives you the power to make decisions about your case.
Please feel free to contact me about the mediation process. I am happy to speak to you directly and answer any questions you have.
