Christina Vinters, J.D., Mediator, Founder of innovative divorce mediation firm

Through my years of work as a Divorce Lawyer and Family Law Mediator, I have extensive experience helping couples with most types of family situations, both preventing problems and resolving disagreements.

I have had the privilege of serving family law clients who required separation assistance structuring the division of net worth in the tens of millions of dollars as well as clients for whom the sole focus was coordinating the healthy co-parenting of their children.

I have seen the financial and emotional damage that divorce court can cause families and it was for this reason that I dedicated myself exclusively to out-of-court resolution. I believe that people deserve a way to peacefully and efficiently handle separation and divorce so that they can continue their lives in a functional way. 

I find it hugely gratifying to help our clients achieve a quick, comfortable, fair & healthy legal separation.
