For Difficult Times
A Better Way Forward
As a successful negotiator and litigator, I’ve spent decades resolving matrimonial disputes the conventional way. I’ve seen firsthand the devastating emotional and economic toll divorce often inflicts on couples.
That’s why since 2006 I’ve focused my practice on out-of-court resolutions: mediation, arbitration and collaborative negotiations. I’m convinced that these are far better alternatives for the great majority of divorcing couples. Read more about divorce mediation and other out-of-court resolutions.
I take genuine satisfaction in finding fair and timely solutions to the issues surrounding the dissolution of a marriage and helping couples preserve their dignity, financial resources and an amicable relationship.
I’m convinced that out-of-court resolutions are best for most.
