Divorce Mediation

Collaborative Law

Cooperative Settlement

Mediation is a family-centered process in which an impartial third party meets with a divorcing couple to help them reach a mutual and informed agreement for the terms of their separation, divorce or post-divorce dispute. An approach in which the parties are represented by separate counsel who are specifically chosen because of their commitment to represent their clients in reaching a settlement without resorting to any form of litigation or court adjudication.  Unlike traditional negotiation, in which each side views the other as an "adversary" to be conquered, constructive settlement negotiation consists of joint problem-solving and places respect for each side's needs, interests and priorities above "winning".

Guiding you to better solutions in the face of conflict

The conflict of divorce and other disputes can be damaging and costly. Today, more and more individuals want no part of it. They want to find the best resolution to difficult situations, and keep the conflict from escalating. But they need skilled, expert guidance, and most importantly, someone they can trust.

Adam Berner is a leading practitioner of mediation, collaborative law, and conflict resolution in the New York and New Jersey area. He brings over 20 years of experience and extensive training to dispute resolution. Offering an array of services, Adam helps clients reach informed, satisfying and cost-effective solutions. In a trusting environment, Adam helps clients create their own agreements based on their mutual needs and goals as well as those of their children.

Adam’s practice places clients first, recognizing that divorce has many dimensions—legal, emotional, psychological, and parental when children are involved. His practice creates a trusting environment that facilitates conversation between divorcing spouses and other disputing parties, encouraging them to understand the facts of their situation, address each other’s priorities, and take charge of shaping their futures.

Clients decide on their future with each other, not against each other.

We provide an informed and problem solving framework, not an adversarial battle ground.

Lasting, Cost-effective, Humane
