Recent Testimonials

Divorce Mediation

“As the year comes to an end, I can not let another day go by without properly thanking you. The work you did with (my husband) and me during mediation was creative, resourceful and simply clever. You both were attentive to our present and future needs- emotionally, financially and legally.

There were many occasions throughout the time you spent with us where I thought there was no possible way to come to a middle ground. Luckily, with your guidance and perseverance you made the impossible, possible. Thank you … from the bottom of my heart for your determination and consideration while working with us. My gratitude is endless.”

Recent Case Results


Divorce after an approximately thirty year marriage.  We represented the Wife.  The major issue in the case was the family business which was inherited and owned by the Husband and his brother, and the Wife’s contribution to that business throughout the marriage due to the fact that she was not an “employee.” [Inherited property in RI is not divisible, on its face.]

We used a business evaluation and negotiations with opposing counsel to reach a resolution that awarded the Wife a specific amount of support for a sufficient amount of time to get herself on her feet.  She was an artist and needed time to reinvent her business and get it off of the ground so she could be self-sufficient.
