My ex and I were ordered to attend mediation with Ms. Peggy Carey. I did not know what to expect from this process, so I was a little intimidated. Maybe 15 minutes into our session, Ms. Carey had me feeling somewhat 'hopeful'. She was very direct and not afraid to maintain 'boundaries' between the parties. Ten years later, I still remember her words, "If you both can find a way to stop posturing and make a genuine effort to hear each other out - I know I can help you reach an agreement". And that she did! I didn't get everything I wanted in the agreement, but I felt like I was actually 'heard' for a change and I even did some 'listening'. After 4 months of bickering, we were able to work through some very delicate issues in less than 2 hours.
Peggy Carey is an excellent resource for family law. For eight years following my divorce decree the conflict escalated, my ex-wife alienated my children, and I spent $160,000 in court costs in vain trying to remain in my children's lives. Ultimately, my ex-wife stopped bringing my children for their parenting time, and I was excised from their world. Desperate and financially drained, I decided to represent myself pro se in a last ditch effort to have the court intervene. For a small fraction of what I had paid "high powered" attorneys in the past, Peggy helped me with the filings, the statutes, and preparation for a hearing. My ex-wife's attorney, used to winning against my hired guns, presented her usual case. Following Peggy's game plan, I successfully pleaded my dilemma, reversed the courtís direction, and the judge found by ex-wife to be in contempt of Court Orders. My family is now back together, my children are thriving, and their future is markedly brighter. I would recommend Peggy Carey for any family law dispute. She is thorough, insightful, and hard-working. If your case can be won, she will help you win it.
