She is a collaboratively-trained attorney and Certified Divorce and Family Law Mediator, and leverages her expertise and experience in alternative dispute resolution to obtain optimal results for her clients. In addition to her interests in alternative dispute resolution and settlement negotiations, Jolee also enjoys working on high-conflict cases involving the potential removal/relocation of children out-of-state, coercive control and narcissistic abuse, and contested guardianships of a minor.
