     The end of a relationship is difficult under the best of circumstances, and trying to work through division of assets or parenting time or even dividing debts can be a daunting task.  That's where mediation can help. 

     We know the process is long and can be expensive, so our goal is to provide high quality mediation services at affordable rates. While we are physically located in the Tampa Bay area, we DO offer mediation services across Florida via ZOOM.  You will get the same high quality services with the comfort of being in your own home or office.
