Once again, I am training new mediators with Mark Riopel and Ketan Soni. We have another fantastic class of mediators. Our community is going to be filled with very experienced family law mediators.
My hope is that our clients will choose mediation instead of litigation to handle their family law issues. To inspire everyone, Sandra Lee came to speak to the class. She offered her view of mediation from the viewpoint of a non-lawyer mediator. She has built up a thriving mediation practice over the years and helped thousands of people make better decisions about their lives and families.
She gives the power to her clients, telling them that they can write the story of their divorce. It can be peaceful through mediation and settlement, or it can be acrimonious through litigation.
Sandra inspires me to give the power to my mediation clients, and to give them the credit when mediation succeeds.
