Compassionate & Collaborative Mediation.
We help families create custody agreements that value each and every relationship in the family.
Our experienced and inclusive team helps families create & define post-separation and post-divorce custody plans for their children. Mediation offers an alternative to litigation that is often faster, cheaper, less contentious and more collaborative.
Divorce and separation are incredibly difficult, redefining your family structure is emotionally, legally and logistically challenging. After working our entire careers within the family courts, we have seen first hand how mediation can make separation or divorce easier on families.
Given our lengthy experience in the family law field, we know the most successful plans are those created by the parents themselves. We approach every family with compassion and empathy. Our primary goal is to collaboratively create a plan that puts the best interests of children first.
We know how important both parents are to children, no matter the nature of the family’s fragility or its overall structure. Regardless of the nature and classification of the referral, we have consistently worked to support children’s connections to their parents and siblings, as these are the ties that potentially nurture children throughout their lives.
Thank you & we look forward to working together.
