  • Completely confidential
  • Make your own decisions
  • Go at your own pace

A Positive, Problem-Solving Approach To Divorce

Litigation is a high-cost, high-conflict form of divorce that benefits lawyers, often at your expense. Multiple attorneys, custody battles, trial, and hours in court are standard protocol, racking up fees and placing an unnecessary emotional burden on couples and their children in the process. Divorce does not have to be this way.

How Does Mediation Work?

At our firm, our mediator meets with you and your spouse to resolve conflict and reach agreed-upon decisions for your divorce in our private office rather than in a crowded public courtroom.

Mediation with us is completely confidential. You never have to go to court. This saves you time and money, protects your privacy, and keeps all decisions between you and your spouse. Rather than have a judge make critical decisions about you and your family, keep control of your life by using our office for mediation.
