I was born and raised in Miami so I really understand our unique culture. We come from diverse backgrounds and this often leads to miscommunication and misunderstandings. That’s where I step in.
As an attorney, I spent almost 20 years as in house counsel at a large manufacturing firm and in construction. Every day I mediated situations that kept my company as well as other companies away from court and the costly expense of litigation.
In my personal life, I’ve experienced the stress of divorce as a child and also as an adult with a child. The emotional and legal process is scary and confusing. Strong emotions and reactions can come up during the process and last long beyond when the divorce decree is signed. There’s a potential for a ping-pong game of negativity.
Over the years, I have successfully mediated thousands of disputes. My specialty is conflict resolution which I approach in a no-nonsense, practical manner infused with doses of humor using my skills as an attorney, mediator and certified coach.
Why do I focus on dispute resolution without the need of filing a lawsuit? Because as an attorney, business owner and divorced person, I know how stressful, lengthy, uncertain and costly litigation can get. In my opinion, litigation is a lose-lose situation. I like to see everyone win while maintaining their stress levels low and being able to predict the outcome with certainty. You can resolve your differences in many legal situations without going to court, yet I focus specifically on divorce.
My experience lies in mediation, mixed modern families, partnerships, stress reduction and helping people to move forward in a productive and empowering way. Throughout the years I’ve studied and taught people how to become more effective communicators with themselves and others. Most disputes can be solved with proper communication and understanding.
I believe that there has to be a better way to go through divorce than what we’ve been conditioned to. I’m passionate about helping people experience divorce in a different way by teaching them what I’ve learned so that hopefully they can avoid needless pain and suffering for themselves and their families. I live this. This is my lifestyle and I want to share it with you.
