KIM'S MEDIATION PRACTICE
Kim helps spouses reach agreement in their divorce or other family law matter by serving as mediator. When Kim serves as mediator, she cannot represent either spouse or partner. Kim's mediator fee is $200.00 an hour.
Kim practices facilitative mediation. This is for partners who communicate fairly well, have balanced power in their relationship, and are comfortable with moderate risk. Kim sits down with both partners, helps them communicate, and guides them to agreement. If the partners reach agreement, Kim will draft documents that reflect their agreement.
Kim completed mediation training with the University of Washington School of Law Professional Mediation Skills Training Program. She also completed Family Mediation Training through the Dispute Resolution Center of King County. Kim has been mediating in family law since 2016.
Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. Point out to them how the nominal winner is often a real loser -- in fees, expenses, and waste of time. As a peacemaker the lawyer has a superior opportunity of being a good man. Abraham Lincoln's Notes for a Law Lecture, July 1, 1850.
