Lizette Reboredo received her Bachelor's Degree in psychology from The University of Miami.  She obtained her law degree from The University of Miami School of Law in 1990, and began her law career as a prosecutor at the Office of the State Attorney inMiami,Florida.  As a trial attorney in the State Attorney's office, she gained extensive and invaluable experience by conducting plea negotiations, bench and jury trials.  She brought that wealth of experience with her when she opened up her private law practice in December of 1993.  Since then, Lizette has had a law practice focusing primarily in the area of family law. 


During 19 years of private practice, Lizette discovered how emotionally draining, conflictive, and expensive a divorce can be and that many times litigation continues even after a divorce is concluded.  It became clear that, most of the time, mediation is the best option when there are children involved since a settlement through mediation very likely reduces feelings of anger and vindictiveness.  As a result, the children are less likely to be emotionally harmed in the process.   It was these realizations that caused Lizette to focus on Mediation as an advantageous alternative to expensive and prolonged litigation.  Having participated in many mediations as an advocate representing her client, Lizette wanted to become more involved with the practice of Mediation.  Consequently, she attained Supreme Court Certifications as a Circuit Civil mediator and as a Family Mediator and has been mediating ever since. 


As a mediator, Lizette found that she experienced gratification by helping parties negotiate settlements and finding solutions that the parties controlled.  The idea of a Judge, although well intentioned, making decisions regarding private family matters is one that never made sense to Lizette.  In mediation, it is the parents that make these decisions. 


In her capacity as a Family Law mediator, she believes that people dealing with divorce or other family related issues need a mediator who can recognize and respond to their emotional, psychological, and financial needs, and who knows how to motivate them to go their separate ways without complete financial and emotional devastation.  As a Certified Circuit Civil Mediator, Lizette has also mediated dozens of foreclosure related cases. 

Lizette is a uniquely qualified mediator whose training, education, and experience allow her to effectively communicate with all parties involved in her mediation sessions.  She brings to the mediation table over 20 years of widely varied experience in the law which have given her the knowledge and ability to comprehend complex legal issues.  This experience coupled with her Bachelor's degree in Psychology give her a well-rounded background for her present practice as a mediator.


In addition to her legal acumen, Lizette is an attentive listener with strong processing and interpersonal skills. She prepares intensively for each case, is compassionate and insightful and works diligently to reach resolution
