Right There for You
Mediation is assisted negotiation between parties in an effort to eliminate or minimize the need for lengthy and expensive litigation. My role as the mediator is to help parties in crafting a workable agreement. My background as an attorney gives me a unique ability to better assist the parties, and understand issues more effectively.
At this time, my primary mediation focus is on family law/domestic relations cases. I am also certified in abuse/neglect matters, and volunteer with the Dispute Resolution Center of West Michigan and mediate private cases. In my experience, mediations are often scheduled for three hours, and I have successfully mediated a resolution in the vast majority of these sessions.
