Mediators

Successful, comprehensive family law dispute mediation rests on 3 collaborative pillars -

Legal, Financial, and Coaching

Our Signature 3 Pillar Co-mediation Platform

Drawing upon our extensive mediation experience, Peace Talks created a unique system where everything you will require to resolve your family law conflict is available under one roof. Your mediation will be served by highly trained mediation professionals in law, finance, and psychology, along with a paralegal to handle the paperwork - all working together for you.

Unlike other mediation firms, you won’t have to hire an outside service to deal with any part of your resolution. Everything is handled in-house, by a collaborative and compassionate team working together to take care of you from the moment you walk in the door until your dispute is settled - because we want this process to bring you peace of mind.
