Board:As a law professor and Co-director of the Quinnipiac Law Center on Dispute Resolution, I am not currently providing Mediation services to the public. I teach in the family law, dispute resolution, and clinical areas of the curriculum, and have been doing so since 1989. Before that, I was in private practice and clerked for the Hon., Ellen Burns, after graduating from UConn School of Law in 1983. I serve on several boards, such as Connecticut Legal Services, Connecticut Council for Non-Adversarial Divorce, CTMA, The Non-Defensive Voice, and am a member of the ABA and CBA Sections on Dispute Resolution. I write about the intersection of dispute resolution and family law. My passion is to improve the future of family law and to reimagine advocacy and practice approaches: to be accessible to persons of all economic means; to continue to improve creative non-adversarial means for families to resolve their separations; and to assure that all outcomes are child-centered.
I am a frequent speaker and trainer in dispute resolution and family law.
