Testimonials

Lucy was amazing! Why? Her demeanor, voice, presence was calming, neutral & soothing. 1000% professional Perfect impartiality, listened to the big picture, answered every question I had, found an error in the 1st combined support worksheet & corrected it, calmly explained the other spouse’s wishes to not seem like demands. For spousal intimidation purposes, we sat in 2 different rooms & poor Lucy had to go back & forth & was so considerate & accommodating. There is a “zen” of going thru mediation with Lucy that is the opposite of the court hearing. – A.C.-Burke, VA


Highly recommend mediation to anyone going through family issues. The process was very helpful and Lucy was incredibly helpful and positive.
