Jun 23, 2023

You will love today’s guest! Lori Barkus of Sustainable Family Solutions sits down with Rhonda to talk about some of the misunderstandings around Mediation. While it can be a great option, you need to be sure you know exactly what the process entails - and what it does not.

  • What are some key things you should know and do before choosing mediation?

  • Preparation is KEY!

About today’s guest: 


Lori Barkus is a cum laude graduate of the University of Miami School of Law. She is admitted to practice in Florida, Colorado, Georgia and the District of Columbia. She also is admitted to practice in the Southern and Middle Districts of Florida and the Eleventh Judicial Circuit Court of Appeals.


Ms. Barkus handled primarily family law and commercial litigation matters and has handled hundreds of contested and uncontested divorce matters. Through this experience, and through extensive training as a mediator, a collaborative divorce professional and a guardian ad litem, she has learned that a lawyers’ most important task in a divorce matter is to encourage clients to seek the most cost-effective solutions to minimize the trauma experienced not only by the divorcing parties but also by their children.
