EDUCATION:
JD University of Maine School of Law
BA Smith College

Board Member NH Conflict Resolution Association

Board Certified Family Mediator

Teresa has been practicing family law since 1993 and serves as a Guardian ad Litem since 1995. In her practice Teresa is frequently called upon to mediate disputes related to parenting, finances, housing, and other issues. Her approach to the practice of law is that mediated and/or negotiated settlements allow the parties to have a significant role in resolving their differences and avoiding litigation. Her work with families all over the state taught her that there is no single manner in which to resolve family conflict and that each case presents a unique set of facts which require an individualized approach to dispute resolution. Mediation allows each family to create the plan or agreement which will guide them in the future, rather than engaging in emotionally and financially costly litigation. If the parties cannot reach a final resolution in the mediation process, said process often narrows the disputed issues and eventual focus of trial.

Teresa’s practice includes family law, guardianships, private and court-appointed mediation, review of negotiated settlements, in-court representation, estate planning and probate administration.
