Description of Practice

Fear. Anxiety. Anger. Depression. These are only some of the extreme, negative feelings that most people have when they face the termination of a marriage, whether they want the divorce or their spouse wants it, or it is a mutual decision. After one or both parties have made the decision to divorce, the next decision is who you retain as your attorney and what will be the process you select. In traditional litigation, the contested divorce model, the couple hires aggressive litigators—the best they can afford or know to hire—to “duke it out” in court. Often the divorcing couple has no idea that there is a much better alternative process to divorce, and they have no idea how destructive litigation can be to their children, their own emotions and daily lives, and their finances, until they are in the middle of the litigation and they see what is happening or not happening. There is a much, much better way to divorce, and it is through the collaborative divorce process, collaborative mediation, and mediation.

Experience

I do not accept litigated cases, but work exclusively to resolve family and marital issues in a non-adversarial process of either collaborative divorce, collaborative divorce mediation or divorce/family mediation. Since leaving litigation, I have now handled over 100 cases in a nonadverasarial process where success is defined as a "winwin" result for both parties and children.

Degrees

I received my B.A. Degree, Summa Cum Laude, from The Ohio State University in 1974, and my J.D. Degree, Cum Laude, also from The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, in 1977.

Approach

My approach to dispute resolution is that all people want a life of peace and tranquility, and not one of unsustainable daily stress. My task as the professional is to lead the parties on the path where peace is not only attainable but the path leads to a place grounded on fair and equitable solutions that enable the parties not only "breath" in the present but also see a bright future full of promise.

Fees

I work on an hourly rate basis and fees are discussed and agreed upon when I know the scope and nature of the undertaking.
