Mary Kinas

I have been a practicing litigation attorney for over 30 years and have now turned my focus to assisting others in resolving disputes.

Approach

As a practicing litigator, my mediation approach is no-nonsense and straightforward.  Ultimately I would like to help the parties avoid the protracted, expensive litigation process to the extent possible.

The road to minimizing litigation is to 1. describe the strengths and weaknesses of their own cases to each party and 2. show the strengths and weaknesses of the other party’s case as well.

In family law cases, that process must be done with care and with an eye towards the delicate nature of marriage and family issues.
