Wiere Mediation Makes A Difference
I’ve had the pleasure of working with many individuals. Each person was kind enough to provide a testimonial of their experience with my mediation services.
It was a shocker when Alison asked me for a divorce. Pete was able to facilitate a wonderful relationship between us, and I believe if adversarial attorneys had been involved, it would have gotten real ugly.

I knew the battleground of divorce because my former husband had already been divorced. It was a terrible, ugly thing where the attorneys pitted them against each other.

Whatever you do, stay out of court. That’s what my grandfather used to say. The court process dis-empowers you, and you are unable to make your own decisions.
Last year was probably the most painful year of my life. I just wanted to fast forward a year and be done with it. However, today, I feel great and there is very little left I have to do to tease out my financial ties with my soon to be ex-husband. Having you to help us work out all the details of the divorce without an attorney was incredible. He listened to you and accepted your direction with little protest and for that I am immeasurably grateful. He doesn’t trust others very easily and I wasn’t sure he would go along with using a mediator, but he did, and the rest is soon to be history. Thank you for everything.
The divorce went smoothly. Thank you for all your help. I highly recommend anyone going through this process to engage you as there mediator.
Coming to terms that our marriage had failed was difficult enough without worrying about the added pain of putting our children through what could have been an even worse, drawn out court proceeding. A family member recommended Peter to handle our mediation and it could not have gone smoother, but most importantly we were able to retain a strong, positive relationship with our children and each other throughout the process. All my pre-conceived concerns regarding divorce proceedings driving a wedge between me, my ex-husband and our family were quickly put to rest. With Peter’s support and guidance we were able to maintain the genuine care and concern for each other that we both entered into our marriage with several years earlier. No lawyers to make it something it wasn’t or have us feel even worse about the situation (or each other). Thank you Peter!
Having an expert guide us through one of the saddest times of our lives allowed us to separate the worry associated with what was needed in a situation such as ours. Peter made certain that we completely understood all aspects of not only what the divorce proceedings would entail, but all the additional considerations that followed so we knew that each of us would be ok financially. While no one wants to face the ending of something that was once treasured, having someone like Peter there to take you through such a daunting experience was invaluable. With Peter’s guidance we were able to move through our divorce proceedings efficiently and cost effectively as outlined during our initial meeting. I had heard of attorney’s intentionally drawing these proceedings out, however that wasn’t the case for us and our mediation. It can be easy to put things off when they are difficult to face – we are grateful Peter was there to help us through the process, while considerate of the emotional challenges we were facing. We would recommend Peter’s services to anyone facing the resolve of divorce.”
Peter was a great help to me and my ex in getting us through the legal parts of a divorce. He helped walk us through all of the information we needed to collect and the decisions that we then needed to make on how we’d separate, including division of debts, the value of the house, time with the kids, and arrangements for child and spousal support. While he never told us the decision we should make, he made sure we understood what we needed to make fair decisions- how the rules and law affected our situation, principles and rules that help with custody arrangements, and how the process would work. Best of all, this was so much more affordable than hiring attorneys to fight. Peter worked on budget (and checked in off the clock) to get us everything we needed to get our divorce documentation prepared and filed. I highly recommend Peter to anyone looking for a sane and reasonable way to mediate your divorce.
Thank you so much for helping us over the huge hurdle of divorce. Thanks to you, Scott and I are still friends and talk very often to see how each of us is doing. You helped us immensely with the separating of our assets. We both feel you were very fair and we are quite happy with the outcome. We never could have done it without your mediation, since he was quite stubborn and hard headed, as you probably remember. Also, for your information only, he finally stopped drinking a couple months ago, so he is finally back on track of taking care of himself and his life.
So I would say, it is the best we could have asked for, as divorces go. We even go hiking together with our dog every now and then. He says it is his dog, but he is letting me take care of her, which is okay by me. So thank you again, for saving my sanity and helping us through the ordeal of divorce, which had the best outcome I could have hoped for. It was worth every penny.
As you recall ours was a pretty normal divorce and division of assets… except for the business. With your guidance we were able to come up with an agreeable division of that asset. I believe that because of your help through this process is a big reason that we are able to still be friends today in spite of some very trying times. Thank you for keeping things cool and for your professional input to help us come up with the solution. I do and will continue to recommend you to anyone in need of a cool head.
Peter masterfully handled a very difficult situation with our divorce. My ex had fired our previous mediator. She would not cooperate and do her “homework”, including reading the explanatory documents provided. Thus she could not understand the terms that were being proposed and became unwilling to work with him. Peter somehow managed to walk her through the process, reading through and explaining each document and communication that she had not read on her own, soothing her concerns, reminding her of what she had agreed to previously and, more importantly, why. His patience and ability to explain are beyond anything I had seen before. We ended up with an agreement that is serving us both very well and have 10’s of thousands of dollars more than we would have if we had gone the adversarial path.
