Mediator's Profile

David Louis

Business Name: Upstate Divorce Mediation

David M. Louis is a Professional Family and Divorce Mediator and a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst who provides virtual mediation and facilitation services to NY clients, using videoconferencing. David works with separating and divorcing couples by helping them avoid the pain, anguish, cost and time of going to court. Unlike the traditional divorce litigation process, divorce mediation provides a safe and neutral setting that provides the opportunity to develop your own, mutually agreed upon plan for your future, respecting the need to protect any children from the negative impacts of divorce, and your financial security and wellbeing.

The mediation process gives you the opportunity to make your own agreement, including parenting plans, division of property and debts and financial support. David can help you take the next step in a civil, constructive and respectful way, while avoiding a costly legal struggle. He helps couples communicate more effectively, offers conflict coaching where needed and divorce financial analysis services. David specializes in:

  • Professional Divorce Mediation
