...MORE GENTLE TRANSITION
Ease the emotional stress, fear and uncertainty that emerge when facing divorce.
Consider a proven alternative that restores communication
and leads to a more civil, peaceful transition.
Specializing in mediation, collaborative divorce, and family and juvenile law matters, Kristine has over two decades of experience working with families and children experiencing difficult transitional life events. Borne of a deep appreciation for holistic, solution focused practice, Restorative Law and Mediation was organized in December 2014.
Kristine’s multi-disciplinary approach to practice is influenced by her legal education received from Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University (JD ’08), and Masters in Social work at Arizona State University (ASU) (MSW '93). Having practiced family law since 2011, she has worked as a faculty associate or in legal education since 2008, and was a child welfare social worker and therapist for fifteen (15) years prior to law school. Kristine has consulted with Maricopa County Juvenile Court in professionalizing child welfare dispute resolution. She is formerly the statewide Director of Training for what is now the Child Welfare Training Institute at the Arizona Department of Child Safety and the Director of Adoptions for Aid to Adoption of Special Kids (AASK).
Kristine is currently a Faculty Associate at the Sandra Day O'Conner College of Law at Arizona State University, teaching courses and leading training workshops in mediation and conflict resolution.
Kristine’s best days in the profession are being witness to the transformative process of those that start in despair, and go on to create joyful futures.
