Divorce & Family Mediation with Christopher Yaffes

I trained as a lawyer in my native South Africa where I practiced Family and Criminal Law for a number of years, before living in America. I became interested in meditation whilst living in New York, and first trained as a divorce mediator in New York State, subsequently retraining and acquiring accreditation as a family mediator in the United Kingdom.

As a former divorce attorney, I have witnessed at first hand the stresses and strains that contested divorce litigation can place on individuals. The contrast with the positive impact upon relationships and the resulting dynamic that a well–managed mediation produces have made me a firm believer in mediation as the way forward.

I am a member of the Family Mediators Association, and am an affiliate member of RESOLUTION, a national organization for family lawyers.
