Divorce and Other Mediation Testimonials

Divorce Mediation

"I believe and have told friends on many occasions during my divorce process, that Barbara has saved the day. She was the BEST thing I could have hoped for to help see the 'real world' solutions to our problems. I never felt she favored my position, just worked fairly with both of us on the fair thing to do in each situation. Barbara took a horrible event in my life and turned it into something I tried for years to avoid, and made the process of divorce an ok process. Thanks Barb!"


"Through a friend's recommendation, my ex-wife and I hired Barbara as the mediator for our divorce. The decision to hire Barbara to mediate our divorce turned out to be the best decision we made throughout our divorce process! Barbara was a true professional - expertly guiding us through the divorce landscape and never taking sides. I highly recommend Barbara's services for anyone thinking about a divorce."

Family Business Mediation

"When my family was involved in a financial business dispute among ourselves we could no longer communicate at all. Faced with the prospect of ending up in a lawsuit, I decided to retain Barbara Smith to mediate the issues between my wife, my adult children and me. Thanks to Barbara's expertise in recognizing and resolving the issues, we were able to discuss the matter effectively, create an action plan and move forward successfully. She not only avoided court for us, she helped us see that we could save the business if we learned how to work with each other."
