As an attorney for 25 years and the manager of my own family law practice in Honolulu, Hawaii for 10 years, I understand how difficult and stressful the litigation process is on everyone---especially your children. 

I have a proven track record of successfully facilitating discussions and developing parenting plans and time-sharing arrangements, evaluating alimony and child support needs, identifying property and financial interests and reaching property, support and custody agreements.

I have successfully mediated hundreds of cases in the DC Metropolitan area.  I am certified by the Virginia Supreme Court and approved as a trainer and mentor for the Superior Court of the District of Columbia, Multi-Door Division and the Virginia Supreme Court.  I also am an Adjunct Professor of Law at American University, Washington College of Law.

I believe that families that are able to reach mediated agreements are more satisfied with the results and are able to move on with their lives in a positive direction.  Let me assist you in identifying what issues may be resolved in a calm and peaceful process and avoid the unnecessary costs and stress of litigation.
