Collaborative Law, Divorce, Custody, Paternity, Child Support, Alimony,Divorce Mediation, Marital Mediation, Pre-Nuptial Agreements, Will Contests, Intra-Family Conflicts,Non-traditional Couples, Mediation Mentoring and Training. In my solo practice of Collaborative Law and Mediation, I work closely with clients to help them to achieve an Agreement that is fair and reasonable in a non-adversarial environment.

This emphasis on fairness, empowerment and dignity carries over to all of the work that I do including cases where litigation becomes the only option. My practice is devoted almost exclusively to Family Law. Mediation and Collaborative Practice are the primary focus of my practice, although I do provide legal advice and representation for many clients each year.

I also provide Mediation Training and Mentoring for those entering the field. $290.00 per hour for advice, representation, and mediation after the first free one-half hour consultation in my Worcester office.
