Florida Family Law Mediator

Why hire Mira White to be our mediator?

I have been a litigating attorney in southwest Florida for more than 25 years. As of January 2017, I am one of only two attorneys in Charlotte County, Florida who are Board Certified in Marital and Family Law.

Board Certified attorneys have earned that designation by being tested, peer reviewed, and having extensive experience handling complex family law cases. Board Certified attorneys are the only attorneys in Florida that are permitted to be referred to as an "expert" or "specialist".

When serving as a mediator, I cannot use my background as a Board Certified attorney to represent either party or to provide specific legal advice. However, I can use that extensive background to help me explain, in general terms, the law and how the Court system works. Additionally, I can call upon my litigation background to give the parties examples of how other people settled similar issues. I have the legal expertise and experience to help the parties discuss various settlement alternatives.

In addition to being a Board Certified attorney, I have extensive training in the field of finance. I have a Masters in Business Administration with a concentration in finance. I am a CPA and Certified Divorce Financial Analyst. Again, I cannot give either party specific financial or tax advice. But being trained in this area helps me understand the most complex financial issues that are raised in family law cases and guide the parties to a resolution.

Once the parties reach a settlement, I help the parties draft their agreement. In doing so, I strive to write clear easily understood agreement that can be successfully implemented by the parties. A well written agreement is much more likely to be followed by the parties than a poorly written agreement. Poorly written agreements typically lead to future arguments and disputes that can cost the parties thousands of dollars in attorney fees. A well written agreement will usually avoid many future disputes, overall costing the part less in attorney and mediation fees.
