Mediation Consultation For Attorneys

Many people are turning to mediation as a viable strategy for reaching favorable and enduring divorce settlement agreements. If you are a lawyer, you have probably noticed the influx of divorce mediation in recent years. Whether clients are choosing mediation for financial reasons, for the fact that mediation is an empowering process or for the fact that they can obtain acceptable solutions or for all of these reasons, we know that divorce mediation works for many people.

As a Worcester mediation law firm, Barbara J. Katzenberg, Attorney at Law, provides counsel to other attorneys who are providing representation in mediation. One of my areas that I excel at is parenting plans. I believe part of this is due to my background — I hold a degree in Early Childhood Development from Tufts University and a master's degree in Social Work from Columbia University.

My background lends itself well to issues that directly affect children of divorcing parents. I believe part of this job is an art. It is about sizing up the situation and understanding the dynamics of parenting with respect to each family. I talk to people, and I listen to people. I ask, "What does that mean for YOU?" As we mediate child custody plans, I look at what each parent wants for his or her child. What schedule does he or she believe is best for his or her child? How did the parents schedule their days when they were together? And now that they are parenting separately, how do they schedule their days? What is best for the child? What results in meaningful time with each parent?

If you are an attorney who is representing a client involved in a family law litigation matter, I can help you mediate a parenting plan or resolve financial disagreements with the opposing party's attorney. I believe this collaboration can result in satisfied clients.

In addition to child custody, I offer my skills in any area of divorce mediation, including property division and modifications.
