I began my career in Family Law in 1986. I quickly realized that Family Law allowed me to interact intimately with individuals and to interface with almost all other areas of the law. I discovered I was passionate about families and how they resolved their legal disputes and decided to pursue mediation. In 1996, I obtained statewide mediation certification from the Florida Supreme Court. After many years of a combined Family Law/Mediation practice, I made the decision to retire from the active practice of law and to concentrate solely on mediation. I am committed to my role as Mediator and welcome the opportunity to share my experience and expertise in assisting parties to resolve their disputes amicably and without the stress, headache, expense and time of litigation.
