Laurel Tuvim Amaya


I am a family law attorney and mediator.  My practice is settlement focused and dedicated to finding peaceful and lasting resolutions.  After years working with divorcing clients in the traditional litigation process, I became determined to bring a different approach to my clients who, through their divorce or parenting disputes, were required to go through the court process.  I became trained in Collaborative Family Law in 2003 and began working with clients in the Collaborative Process.   I have over 600 hours mediating many divorces, parenting disputes and post-judgment modifications and over 100 hours of both mediation and collaborative training.  I am a Certified Advanced Practitioner with the Academy of Professional Family Mediators.
