It was a pleasure to work with you! I can't say enough how grateful I am
for your help. Your compassion, patience and very organized way of working made
this rough process a lot easier. I felt the mediation process we went through
with you was very efficient. I know it's a long way to go and all three of us
need to adjust, but I think the mediation process was a very good starting
point. Without your help it wouldn't work out so well. Thanks again for all
you did for us!
Just a belated thank you for helping to amicably resolve our divorce. You did a great job in leading us through the mediation process, keeping us on track and then finishing by our agreed-upon deadline.

Lisa is vigilantly fair in working with both sides during
mediation. She is thoughtful and detailed-oriented. After the
divorce is finalized, you feel secure that all the important aspects were
covered, especially in matters relating to children.
Hi Lisa, it's Kelly Comstock, today is the day and I just wanted to say
thanks again for helping us do this in a peaceful way, you’re a kind and
compassionate person and that shows in your work. I hate the idea of my
marriage ending but I hope from this point we can all be happy. This is bitter sweet,
but thanks again.
I really appreciate what you've done for us. I will be more than happy to recommend you to anyone going through this. You've managed to ease a difficult situation and helped both of us part on
much better terms than would be possible otherwise.
My ex-wife and I
hired Lisa Taylor to mediate our divorce instead of getting high priced
attorneys involved. Lisa was extremely professional and really helped in
making a very difficult situation tolerable. She remained completely neutral
throughout the entire process and helped get us through some extremely heated
and challenging aspects of the mediation.
Lisa has also been
extremely helpful in answering questions after the fact and aided us through
the entire divorce process. We will definitely go with Lisa if further
mediation is needed down the road and I recommend others do so as well.
I just wanted to make sure you
knew our divorce was final this last Monday. Although very hard emotionally
I had to let you know how grateful I was to you for all your help. I
truly believe this was the right process for us. Being able to come together
and make the decisions with your guidance was a much better process with less
conflict and animosity then I ever would have expected. We were able to
retain respect for each other through the process which was important to both
I feel so lucky that I went with
my gut when choosing you to help with our mediation. Your views and
opinions you shared on your website made me feel like you were an honest person
with much integrity and my assumption was spot on! Your professionalism
and impartiality were consistent all the way through. We both appreciated
how all paperwork was so thorough and complete. Your experience as an attorney was very obvious as we moved through our sessions . You also
referred us to a couple of individuals that were necessary for our process and
they too were very helpful. The court proceeding went as smoothly as it
could minus the emotional toll.
If I ever have the opportunity
to recommend mediation as the process or you, I will absolutely do it without
hesitation. Thank you so much for all you did for us.
I wanted to thank you for all your help and guidance in this process. You made the process MUCH less stressful and we really appreciate that.
Court went very smooth. Just a few groups getting divorced, so were in and out very quickly. Bottom line, they waved the 6 month waiting period and we are officially divorced.
K. and I have both said we like you very much and you made a very nervous scary process "almost" fun.
Thanks again for all your help.
Thanks, Lisa. I really appreciate your patience
and ability to navigate this process for/with us.
I found your involvement invaluable and would
be happy to serve as an enthusiastic reference should you ever require one.
I just want to thank you for all of your help. As you know, we both had lawyers
battling for us and we both got sick of what it was doing to us and to our
kids. You made us so happy
that we chose mediation instead.
We accomplished in just a few meetings what we had been deadlocked about
for months with our lawyers. And
now we are able to talk to each other about the kids and solve problems that
come up instead of assuming the worst about each other and just fighting all

Thanks again for your excellent work in mediating
our divorce. This is not an easy or simple journey but you were able
to help us navigate through the rough waters with both sensitivity and
professionalism. I am absolutely certain that this is the best
way to handle a divorce because my ex-wife and I were able to sustain the
lines of communication for the future and for our children. I cannot
imagine a better mediator than you or a more
equitable process. The work that you are doing is so important and
I hope that more couples will take advantage of this method
and your service in the future.

Having made the
difficult decision to divorce after a long marriage,
my husband and I
were committed to resolving our differences in a
manner. We did not want the process to dissolve
into a bitter,
angry, drawn-out fight with one another. We researched
discovered that divorce mediation was the path that we
wanted to take.
As our mediator, Lisa Taylor made the complicated
process of divorcing
easy to understand. She made sure that each of
us was heard, that
our concerns were addressed, and that both of us
had helped to create
a balanced settlement with one another. She has
made this difficult
process less painful by giving us a level of
determining what we wanted the outcome to look like.
Hiring Lisa to mediate our divorce was one of the smarter
decisions I’ve made. She was able to guide us through the negotiation
process and help us stay focused on the decisions that needed to be made.
My ex and I were able to make our own decisions about how we wanted to handle
parenting-time and the division of assets and liabilities. Lisa was able
to keep us on-task and make helpful suggestions when we got stuck, all while
maintaining a very human presence in the room. Perhaps the greatest
testimony to her skill was the result of our meeting with the court
referee. When he started asking questions, we simply handed him our
fully-prepared-and-signed Agreement. The referee spent about five minutes
thumbing through the document and then said essentially, “Huh, well, this is
pretty thorough. Looks like you’ve got everything covered,” and sent us
on our way. In the end, Lisa’s guidance made an unavoidably painful
process much less-painful and I felt good about the compromises that I agreed
Stephen O (prefers not to advertise his last name)
I was very
impressed with Lisa’s approach to the mediation process. Having never
been through a divorce before, it was comforting to lean on her
experience. She was methodical and logical in the way she organized the
individual topics that needed to be negotiated and thoughtful in how she
offered input. She was very clear about her neutral role in the process
and never provided advice that was inappropriate to either party. She was
an effective facilitator and kept both parties focused while remaining
sensitive to the strong emotions associated with some of the topics. At
the end of the process I feel like we came out with not only a fair and
equitable separation agreement but a trusted partner to call on if the future
great to work with! After 10 years of marriage and two kids, one would
think a divorce in this situation would be extremely difficult, lengthy, and
expensive. Lisa, however, made the entire process smooth, quick, and
peaceful by being fair and reasonable with both of us. The entire process
only took 6 months from beginning of mediation until the divorce was final.
Lisa has a very in-depth knowledge of the entire process and is very
detailed, making sure each item is covered. I highly recommend

I have friends who
have spent thousands of dollars and endured a great deal of emotional stress
and anxiety while attempting to get a divorce using the typical adversarial
approach. My ex-husband and I agreed that it was in our best interest and the
best interest of our child to resolve our issues amicably. For this reason we
chose mediation and Lisa Taylor. From
our first meeting Lisa was unbiased, knowledgeable and professional. She helped
us navigate through the emotional, financial and practical nuances of
separating our lives while providing valuable advice based on her many years of
experience in the field. While our family structure has changed, we have
emerged from divorce with respect for one another and a clear path of how we
will interact as a family in the years ahead. I am convinced beyond any doubt,
that had we not used Lisa Taylor, we would not have had such a positive

I just wanted to let you know that everything went very smoothly at
court. The judge granted the motion to waive Friend of the Court and did not require us to wait
the standard 6 months.
Thanks again for all your help and expertise!!! This process could have been so much more difficult (and expensive) and we really appreciated your guidance.
Thank you for all your help over the past few months.
We are not through all of this yet, since we are moving...but
you have certainly confirmed our belief that we could work without the
nastiness that is so commonly associated with divorces. You had a nice
straightforward approach to us navigating through all of the necessary steps,
remained VERY objective throughout, and were a wonderful mediator in terms of
your being patient yet moving things along, emotionally sensitive to hard
topics, and overall very efficient. Thank you for your help, and we will
be sure to keep you posted.
I would highly recommend Lisa Taylor for anyone going
through a divorce. Her
professional calm, understanding approach to both our needs made this process
almost enjoyable. Thank you Lisa
for changing the direction of the current system.
Divorce is a heart wrenching experience; however, it was
made much easier with the thoughtful and professional mediation skills of Lisa
Taylor. I would highly recommend
Kevin S. (prefers not to advertise his last name)
I came to Lisa Taylor looking for some help
with my divorce. My now ex-wife and I were very nervous. We didn’t
know what to expect. We were both pleasantly surprised! Lisa Taylor was the most
professional, compassionate, and empathetic person we have ever met. She guided
us through the process, explaining every step in great detail. She worked with
us both on what we needed to provide and exactly what we needed to do once we
got to court. She was very organized and provided me with receipts for my
payments. She was very courteous and took our
situation very seriously, while at the same time was very friendly and put us
both at ease.
Divorce is not and easy thing to have to go through, but
Lisa Taylor made is bearable for us…and we thank her for that. I would recommend her services to anyone seeking mediation.
Thanks Lisa for making a painful situation go
smoothly. You seemed to help the both of us make decisions that we
could both agree with. You did a great job keeping peace that will allow
us both to parent our kids without any emotional baggage regarding the
divorce. Thanks for that.
This is never a good
situation and nobody ever really wins. But thanks to you, we were
able to resolve this situation amicably and smoothly with no major
issues. You have a very good process that suited our needs
perfectly. I am glad we chose you!
Again, my sincere
thanks in helping to make what was possibly the hardest thing I've ever done,
so much easier.
