I am a licensed attorney and trained mediator. I am comfortable using traditional estate and disability planning techniques as well as more innovative approaches to conflict (and conflict prevention) such as peacemaking and family facilitation, and holistic planning for individuals and families facing chronic illness. I have experience as a mediator for probate protective proceedings as well as estate administration disputes.
