Bringing to divorce mediation and family law over 20 years of practical experience with couples and families, Johnathan takes a flexible and pragmatic approach in his work. His understanding of relationship dynamics and extensive experience resolving family conflict gives him a unique skill set which can be interwoven into the divorce process and has proven to facilitate what can be a very difficult and trying time for clients.
