Effective family law mediator
Mediation gives you and your spouse a structured forum to negotiate a divorce settlement. The mediation process fosters cooperation between separating partners and lessens the stress and hostility usually associated with litigation. Mediation is often a time- and cost-effective choice compared to taking a case to the courtroom. It helps put the decision-making process in your hands. I guide the mediation process so you obtain a favorable divorce settlement, a fair child support agreement and a healthy child custody arrangement.

If going to court becomes necessary, having a strong litigator at your side is vital in order to protect your rights. I zealously prepare for trial and fight for your rights at every stage of the adversarial litigation process. My assertive approach alleviates some of the uncertainty and stress of the arduous litigation process and helps you obtain the most favorable trial outcome. Using strategic trial tactics and commanding courtroom presence, I successfully represent clients throughout the adversarial litigation process.
