The Numbers Don’t Lie
A TruNorth Mediation isn’t the same as most mediations. We bring financial, practical, and emotional coaching expertise to each mediation to create optimal agreements, utilizing sophisticated financial analysis tools and creative problem-solving. As such, while our mediators are not lawyers, they are well-versed in divorce and family law and your legal papers will be prepared by a legal professional to be filed with the court.
TRUNORTH MEDIATION clients who were "extremely"` or "VERY SATISFIED" past 12 months
Our work with TruNorth Mediation was smooth and quick. Our finances were rather complicated–a pension, restricted stock units, education accounts, child support, alimony, and a mortgage agreement–and we were pleased with the accuracy, thoroughness and creativity that came from their analyses and settlement options.
We couldn’t have gotten through the process without Berni’s knowledgeable and patient guidance. It was a real pleasure working with her and she really knows her stuff!
Berni was so supportive throughout the process. Our divorce and mediation were tangled by a good deal of turmoil and emotional distress, but Berni kept us focused, hopeful, and moving forward until we could come to agreements about our finances and the kids. You won’t be disappointed with TruNorth Mediation!
