About Our Family Mediator

Not all mediators are the same. Mediation in Colorado is currently unregulated, and therefore anyone, no matter their background or level of education, can claim to be a mediator. Choosing the wrong mediator can make things worse as they may not know the law, how to draft enforceable documents or be able to raise relevant issues.

Our Family Mediator, LLC is a well-respected and certified mediator for over two decades and family law attorney who has practiced for 27 years before all Courts in the Denver-Metro area and throughout many other counties in Colorado. She has handled over 7000 family law cases in her capacity as a family law attorney and mediator. Our Family Mediator, LLC can also act as a court-appointment Decision-Maker and Arbitrator. With her wealth of knowledge and expertise, the mediator resolves 96% of the cases she mediates. A matter resolved in mediation saves you time, money and stress associated with litigating the issues, and allows you control over the outcome. No outcome is guaranteed if you proceed before the court.

The mediator knows most of the family law attorneys in the Denver Metro area and is equally comfortable mediating for parties with or without counsel.

The Mediator received her Law Degree from the Strom College of Law in 1991 from the Moritz College of Law at The Ohio State University and a B.S. in Biochemistry from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, in 1986. While she is currently not practicing law, she is accepting new mediation and arbitration cases.

Due to her former years as a practicing attorney, the mediator has a broad and deep understanding of the law and can offer new insights and perspectives many parties have not yet considered, and help them navigate and resolve their issues rapidly, with lower stress and in a more affordable manner. The mediator will address all concerns and draft an agreement that is clear and enforceable by the courts.

Mediation is beneficial not only in resolving disagreements but in reducing stress and conflict. Contrast that to litigation which increases anger and distrust, is very expensive, may not achieve the results you think are fair or sometimes even workable, and destroys parents ability to co-parent for three years or longer. Not a great outcome if you have children to raise together where continued communication is paramount. Parties communication skills strengthen in mediation, and often they come to understand how they can work together to serve the best interest of their children. Having the parties meet and discuss options can reduce the conflict level by addressing heated arguments or long-running disputes. Frequently, issues that seem insurmountable are readily resolved in mediation either by clarifying the law or coming up with a solution that neither party had previously considered.

As a bonus, studies show that mediated agreements have a far higher compliance level by the parties. Long-term peace, reduction of conflict when a party fails to comply with the court-order and savings by not having to return to court to enforce the court order are all factors that continue long after the agreement is signed.

With each return to court, distrust and conflict rise. The result? Continued stress on the children, who feel caught in the middle, or feel coerced into taking the side of one parent over the other. Studies show that it does not matter if the conflict occurs in the same household or separate households- the impact on the children is the same. Children, including very young ones, experience conflict between the parties, even if you think you are shielding them, which can lead to life-long emotional scars. Your kids are busy growing and learning, do not distract them from this purpose. Working together allows the kids to see how grown-ups handle situations, and how they should act in their future relationships. Be a good model.

As both a parent and a small business owner, the mediator understands how complicated balancing family, work and the concerns of the other parent can be. People of all backgrounds, various socio-economic means, and cultures (translators are no problem if needed) effectively utilize her services. For the majority, she can fashion a reasonable approach the parties need to move forward. She has excellent math skills required for property division, understands the tax implications of the decisions, and knows which experts should be consulted and when. She is creative and knowledgable in arriving at workable solutions, including the children.

We invite you to contact our office with any questions you may have. We are located at 5400 Ward Road, Building 1, Ste. 200, Arvada, CO 80002.

In most cases, the mediator will review documents provided to her before the mediation session (time allowing) if the parties have already filed, are represented by counsel and require only one session. (This does not apply to new Divorce or Paternity cases.) Our rates are incredibly reasonable. Please call (303) 431-9792 for more information.
