I am a child of divorce at age 9 with two siblings.  My father remarried a few years later into 6 additional children.  My mother later re-married and re-divorced.  I was raised on and off in both households with periodic substance abuse issues as part of the dynamics.  After leaving home, I was married and divorced before age 25.  I re-married at age 28 to my current beautiful wife and her 3 year old son.  We had 1 additional child born 1 year later and both children were raised together successfully in our home while our son maintained a relationship with his natural father.  Therefore, I have personally experienced practically every side of the broken marriage issue and understand both the emotion and dynamics that are brought to the table in a divorce or post decree matter beyond the pure legal consequences of the action. 

After more than 20 years as a litigator, my experiences lead me to the conclusion that for most divorce cases, litigation was the wrong way to find resolution. The customary "day in court" approach takes an extraordinary amount of time, costs a "sticker shock" amount of money, causes irreparable damage to family relations, and rarely achieved the best result for the parties. At the end of the day, few clients felt anyone had listened to their concerns, were frustrated by the lack of control over the case and the costs, and did not think the end result was worth the emotional and financial damages it caused to their lives.

So, a number of years ago, I gave up representing parties in litigated divorces, and now focus on the powerful method of mediation to help people learn about their options, determine their unique needs, and then create workable solutions with the most cost effective and fair process available.
