Mediators

Arnold Swartz, Mediator, L.C.S.W.
I am committed to providing the highest quality mediation service at a reasonable cost. I am dedicated to assisting my clients to make decisions in a manner that maximizes the benefits and minimizes the amount of stress for everyone involved. We specialize in situations where the parties have a continuing relationship. This includes divorced parents, siblings and parents, coworkers and business partners and associates.
Dawn O’Neil, Attorney / Mediator
I focus my practice on achieving positive legal outcomes through non-adversarial means whenever possible. As an attorney and trained litigator, I know how to win in court. But where families are involved, often times if the goal is to “win”, then everyone loses. In a divorce, the assets need to be untangled, but the relationship, whether through children, relatives or mutual friends, will likely continue in some form. I will help you obtain your fair share of the family assets and help you restructure your relationship with your spouse so that you have a long-term co-parenting plan that works.
Janet K. Rose, Mediator, PCDM
I am an attorney-turned-mediator/peacemaker. I believe in the transformative potential of mediation and work best with parties who need to maintain communication with one another after the main conflicts are resolved. Thus, I work primarily with parents and families in conflict over custody, visitation, decision-making, religious and school choice issues. I am also trained as a parenting coordinator/decision-maker for higher conflict cases. I offer a non-judgmental environment that is trauma-informed, LGBTQ-friendly and lifestyle aware.
Madhu B. Krishnamurti, Attorney/ Mediator
I believe genuine interest in people, gentleness and patience with human emotions and frailties, listening keenly, approachability, perceptiveness, intuition, and sensitivity are all needed in addition to knowledge of the law to help families through divorce. I have these skills and believe they have drawn me organically to this area of the law. I am trained as a divorce and family mediator and in collaborative law. I prefer these approaches to battling it out in court although I also have litigation experience.
Rebecca Prescador, Attorney
My primary objective is to make legal services affordable for everyone. Many people do not have the ability to come up with large retainers which are frequently insisted upon by other attorneys, and yet cannot qualify for public assistance with their legal issues. We have implemented several options in our practice for helping people financially including low initial retainers, payment plans, and even some flat fee items. Determining the right approach for you and your situation is the first step. I offer a free initial consultation, which gives us both an opportunity to determine whether we can work together, and if so, what needs to be done to solve the problem that brings you here.
Terri Harrington, Attorney/ Mediator
I believe I was put on this earth to help families through this difficult transition. I am dedicated to conflict resolution and specialize in helping couples divorce in an amicable manner. I practice collaborative law and am a dedicated mediator who helps couples reach full agreement and helps them complete the divorce paperwork. I teach non-adversarial communication, peacemaking for lawyers and mediation skills. I also provide unbundled legal services so that my clients get only the help they need in the most efficient way.
