Mediation In Divorce

I am lawyer and certified mediator Susan Rossi Cook. I have more than 10 years of experience guiding families in Franklin, Massachusetts, and the surrounding area through family law mediation. With training in collaborative law, mediation and court-ordered conciliation, I help families reach fair compromises that allow them to move on with their lives.

Mediation is not about winning or losing; it is about coming together to create a mutually agreeable resolution to divorce and making a decision not to put your family through the ordeal of a contentious divorce.

Fair Resolutions Without The Cost Of Trial

Many people believe that, in order to protect their rights in divorce, they need to turn it into a winner-takes-all battle. But as a lawyer, I have seen some divorce matters drag on unnecessarily, costing the participants time, money and a great deal of stress. Even more damaging are the emotional costs, which can make it difficult to move on with your life or to co-parent children. When parents are constantly fighting, it is usually the child who suffers most.

I have helped clients mediate divorce, child custody and other difficult family law issues.

When litigation becomes necessary, whether a spouse refuses to cooperate or other circumstances make mediation untenable, I am prepared to fiercely advocate for the rights of my clients. My problem-solving skills and eye for detail, which I have developed as a pharmacist, educator, attorney and mediator, serve my clients well when litigation is the only option to resolve their case.
