Partners In Mediation – Rhode Island
Mediation Attorneys

Partners in Mediation


We normally mediate as a team. While we have been practicing law and counseling for many years, when we mediate, we sit at the mediation table as mediators only. At the same time, our knowledge and our experience give us the ability to guide you to your solution. We have found that “two heads are better than one” in the mediation process and our clients appreciate our different backgrounds and perspectives.

Mediation is still a mystery to many people since it is not as widely utilized in Rhode Island and Massachusetts as it is in other parts of the country. A good starting place is to read Jeremy’s article “Divorce With Dignity”. This article was written in 1997 for the Rhode Island Bar Journal. We also suggest reading our Partners In Mediation’s page What is Mediation? If you want to fully investigate mediation, go to www.Mediate.com

We work with CPA’s regularly within the mediation process and “Collaborative Law” is very similar to our method of helping you through your issues when there are money or tax issues. We utilize a cutting-edge divorce financial system called Family Law Software to organize data, test options, compute tax consequences, and to accurately review future budget projections and asset growth. Finally, the home page for www.Mediate.com will lead you to over 1,200 articles and resources regarding mediation.

You may ask us a specific question by emailing us directly:
