I have over 25 years of experience in mediation and am certified by the NC Dispute Resolution Commission in Superior Court and Family Financial Mediation. I am an attorney, licensed in Georgia and California. I currently limit my practice exclusively to mediation, primarily of employment and family law matters. I mediate all aspects of divorce, including custody and visitation, equitable distribution and other financial issues. I am comfortable working with couples with or without attorneys present in the mediation.
