Even the strong can feel overwhelmed by the thought of going to court to resolve a legal issue involving their family. Reality is, very few family law matters end up being decided in court. As both a lawyer and mediator, she resolves the vast majority of her cases through negotiation or mediation. If it is impossible to negotiate and you need your matter addressed by the courts, she will be by your side every step of the way.

Mediation of your divorce issues or co-parenting disputes can help you find a compromise that meets the needs of both parties and helps the parents move on to a better tomorrow. Mediation has many benefits, including:

  • Giving flexibility to the legal process and better accommodating for both parties’ needs
  • Ensuring both parties feel heard throughout the process
  • Personalizing legal solutions and preventing arbitrary resolutions common in the court
  • Resolving conflict more quickly and often with a smaller financial burden

Additionally, Meredith is an experienced Guardian Ad Litem, Parent Coordinator, and registered arbitrator.
