I have practiced family law and mediation for over 35 years and am one of only twelve Ohio Supreme Court Board Certified Family Relations Specialists in Cincinnati. I am honored to have been named 2011 Cincinnati Best Family Relations Lawyer and 2013 and 2015 Cincinnati Best Family Mediator by Best Lawyers in the United States, a peer-selection distinction given to only one lawyer in each practice area in each city. Additionally, I have received the highest peer review rating (AV) by Martindale Hubbell and have consistently been selected for inclusion in Ohio Super Lawyers Top 25 Female Lawyers in Cincinnati. I am a past president of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP).
I have now chosen to concentrate my practice solely on mediation. This focus blends my experience and deep interest in conflict resolution and negotiation. I have developed a highly successful mediation process that effectively assists couples and families with family related conflicts.
In addition to my mediation practice, I provide workshops on Collaborative Practice, effective communication and negotiation and am the lead trainer and designer of the Beyond Civility Communication Workshops, a program focused on strategies for successfully conducting difficult conversations for selected bi-partisan political, business and media leaders.
