Biography

Gillian is the Attorney Mediator and owner of Finding Common Ground Mediation & Law Services. Gillian is an experienced attorney and mediator specializing in family law matters. She has 23 years of experience and has helped hundreds of people resolve their legal disputes without going to court. Getting a divorce or creating a parenting plan for 2 households is difficult. At Finding Common Ground, Gillian helps educate her clients about the law, while empowering them to reach their own agreements with a structured mediation process that promotes productive communication. Clients who mediate maintain control, create tailored agreements that suit their unique needs, while spending significantly less time and money than they would if they litigated in court.
Gillian also prepares and files all of the legal documents for her clients, giving them durable agreements that truly meet their needs. In mediation, the focus is not on the win-lose model, rather the focus is on finding solutions that will work for everyone.

Professional Experience
Owner / Attorney Mediator
Finding Common Ground Mediation & Law Services
- Current
I am a private, confidential Attorney Mediator specializing in Family Law. I have been an Attorney Mediator since 2004 with a 99% success rate. I believe mediation truly is the better solution. Unlike other attorneys who mediate on the side while continuing to litigate, I have focused exclusively on mediation since I opened my practice. If you are looking to find common ground and move on with your life, please contact my office to see if mediation is right for your situation. BEFORE YOU LITIGATE, MEDIATE. With Mediation you: * Pay Less; * Maintain Control; * Promote Respect and Consideration; * Focus on the Future; * Reach Mutual Agreements. If you have children, Mediation helps you focus on the best interests of your children. I specialize in comprehensive parenting plans to help both parties avoid future conflict.
