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.
I have received formal training in the following fields: Family Mediation Collaborative Law Marital Mediation Non Violent Communication Compassionate Listening Parenting Coordinator
J.D. University of Colorado (Boulder) (1987) B.A. Brown University
Dispute resolution should focus on problem solving - not finger pointing. I help clients find common ground.
First 1/2 hour mediation information session is no charge. Call or e-mail my office for hourly fees.
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.
