A Mediator who practices in multiple areas may not possess the specific expertise you may need - Family Law requires very specific knowledge.
Your time is precious. Our services expedite the divorce process. Remember, the more you litigate the more time you will spend in the court system and the more your attorney earns in fees. Many attorneys who solely advocate for men's or women's "rights" are preparing you for battle, not negotiation. It benefits an attorney to keep you in the court system: more time, more money. If you are really ready to move forward, mediate your divorce.
The divorce process is difficult at best. We want to get you through it without having to deal with spending all of your time in the court system or on the phone with a lawyer. We're here to guide you through this difficult situation without stripping you of your savings.
Is your Mediator an Attorney who simply switches hats in order to mediate? What type of degree does your Mediator possess? How many Family Law cases have they mediated?

At the end of a 14 year marriage to a friendly, docile woman whom I would have wanted as a friend..that all changed when she brought family, friends, business and new "supporters " into the middle of a divorce that was to be mutual and respectful..that unfortunately changed as I can no longer even speak to her for fear of her erratic actions and claims.
Joni somehow managed to keep the mediation on its rails while always respecting boundaries. She has accomplished what most professionals could never do.. she kept victimology and drama out of the negotiations and my life and that I am eternally grateful for.
Thank You Joni!
Joni was so helpful throughout my entire ordeal. I was finally able to get my husband to mediation and quit with the threats of hiring an attorney. Each of us found her thorough and sensitive to our issues. Thank you.
