Description of Practice

I am a Collaborative Lawyer who helps my clients negotiate divorces in a private and respectful manner. With Collaborative Law, my clients focus on the future (what will I need) rather than the past (who should be blamed). Together we discuss creative solutions to meet my clients’ needs. I work on Collaborative cases to resolve divorces, alimony and property division issues, post-divorce modifications, parenting plans as well as out-of-wedlock maters. In 2012 I received Collaborative Law training and since that time I have served on many committees as well as the President of the Massachusetts Collaborative Law Council. I have presented workshops to train other professionals in the field.

Experience

I have received formal training in the following fields: Family Mediation Collaborative Law Marital Mediation Non Violent Communication Compassionate Listening Parenting Coordinator

Degrees

J.D. University of Colorado (Boulder) (1987) B.A. Brown University

Approach

Dispute resolution should focus on problem solving - not finger pointing. I help clients find common ground.

Fees

First 1/2 hour mediation information session is no charge. Call or e-mail my office for hourly fees.

Other Information

I am a lawyer that provides mediation, mediation representation, collaborative law, and lawyer-to-lawyer negotiations. Because I no longer enter appearances as a divorce litigator in contested divorce, my clients and their spouses feel a sense of comfort that my approach will be settlement focused. And it is settlement focused and the best way to resolve the case.
