Let’s put the pieces together.

I take a practical approach to all facets of divorce, focusing on your top priorities, and exploring creative solutions to achieve your best outcome.

We build global agreement, one issue at a time.

Pearl Mediation, LLC
By mediating you’ll avoid the expense, time, and drama that accompanies the traditional litigation process. I’ll help you separate the emotion from the business of divorce. I meet with clients jointly and in private caucus, hearing your goals and concerns, with the experience to find solutions you’re comfortable with.
By anticipating problems you’ll avoid future setbacks and move forward with an agreement you can build your future on.
Divorce Issues
Separation; divorce; allocation of parental responsibilities; parenting plan; division of property & financial  assets and liabilities (in both equitable distribution and community property states); child support; spousal maintenance/alimony; planning for special needs.
Practical Issues
If you’re wondering… Should I stay or should I go? How does this all work? How do I choose an attorney? How much will my divorce cost? How long will it take? How do I protect my children?

How do I negotiate or parent with a difficult ex? Will I be ok? … I’ve got you!
