“Without taking sides, Mara was able to bring tact to the conversation and minimized emotion – a difficult thing to do – much appreciated. The mediation was extremely valuable – it saved my ex-husband and me a lot of time and money.”

K.M., Client

“Mara, thank you! Litigation is such an uncomfortable situation, so I’m thrilled that mediation turned out to be so much more civilized and efficient. I appreciate how you minimized arguments and moved us expeditiously towards agreement on every issue, no matter how rancorous. I think couples and their children will be much better off if they use mediation to work out their differences.”

M.T., Client

“Having practiced as an Arizona attorney for 20 years with an emphasis in family law for 9 years, I can attest to the value of mediation for families and couples going through a divorce or separation. I have worked closely with Mara Linder throughout the years and highly recommend her services to any parties considering divorce. Mara is extremely professional and very sensitive to the needs of those facing the difficult transitions inherent in the divorce process.”

Daniel A. Zanon, JD, Family Law Attorney

“As part of my clinical practice, I have seen first-hand the painful effects of divorce. Mediation is an alternative to litigation that helps couples (and their children) through divorce in a way that is more compassionate, cooperative, and less stressful. Mara’s caring nature, along with her background in law and counseling, make her a great asset to divorcing couples. I highly recommend her as a mediator.”
