Mediator/Family Law Attorney/Arbitrator/Collaborative Law
One of the best ways to help divorcing couples is to carefully listen to their story so that I may identify the legal issues where I can help them the most. I advise my clients about the advantages and disadvantages of getting divorced; ways to get divorced: (1) fight it out in the court system, or (2) settle your disagreements outside of court; and understanding alternative dispute resolution methods, such as mediation, collaborative law, arbitration, and the IHOP method (Informal, Healthy Opportunity for Peace. Clients need to know that others have been through similar circumstances, and that there is support for their situation. Often times, I am able to provide clients with counseling resources, community resources, and books to read to help them understand and work through their loss, life changes, and plan for their new beginning, whether that is reconciliation, moving forward alone, or moving forward with a new partner.
