What We Do

For this reason we offer a menu of mediation configurations to support you within the process. Mediating your matter successfully is much larger than simply achieving stipulations, Stipulated Judgments of Dissolution, custody agreements, or other temporary and permanent agreements it includes promoting a tone of cooperation and civility that survives the end of relationship, and therefore makes resolutions enduring and honorable.
