Review of Family Law Mediatior Alona M Gottfried

Nothing demonstrates the extreme benefits of family law mediation like a review from someone who has been through the process. One recent participant in a mediation I conducted, who asked that we refer to her as Tambi S., gave a glowing review of her experience. She discussed the ease and expediency of the process:

I found mediation to be such a relief and a hassle free process. Alona was wonderful at taking care of all the details. We literally met with her once, had follow up emails and paperwork to sign. The entire process was completed in a few short months. No one I tell, can believe we were able to finalize a divorce that quickly.

Tambi also expressed how important mediation was in supporting a positive relationship with her husband, which is necessary when the participants have children:

I absolutely would recommend mediation to everyone. Had we gone thru the courts and each obtained an attorney, I am convinced we would no longer be speaking to each other. Mediation has allowed us to continue the best co parenting possible.

I think mediation is a sign of respect for all parties involved. Mediation put our children’s needs ahead of any of our emotional distress. Because we have children, we must maintain an ongoing relationship to some degree and without mediation I don’t think we could have done so.

Tambi concluded:  “Mediation brought me peace of mind at a very stressful time.”
