Florida Family Law Mediator

Certified Valuation Analyst

I am please to announce that I have been credentialed by the National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts as a Certified Valuation Analyst. This designation recognizes CPAs who have specialized business valuation training, passed an extensive written examination, and completed a comprehensive business valuation case study. The training and education leading to this certification will help me better understand, and mediate, cases involving small businesses. This designation, coupled with my certification as a Board Certified Marital & Family Lawyer, prepares me to mediate financial issues from the simplest of divorces to the most complex. Let me put my Certified Valuation Analyst training to use by serving as your 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.

Trust an Experienced Family Lawyer to Mediate Your Case

I am now offering mediation services for family law cases in Florida. Mediations can be held at my office in Port Charlotte, Florida, or I am willing to travel to other professional locations to conduct the mediation conference.

My hourly rates are very competitive and are scaled based upon the parties' combined incomes. I do not change for travel time to professional locations within Charlotte, DeSoto, and Sarasota Counties, Florida. Travel time to locations outside of that area is charged at $ 100.00 per hour.

My extensive experience and educational background provide me with the skills to effectively mediate all types of family law cases, from the simplest timesharing disputes to the most complex financial cases. I have been a practicing family lawyer for more than 25 years. I have handled thousands of cases, most of which have ultimately settled through mediation. Although I have settled the majority of my cases, I have conducted numerous contested hearings and trials. I have also been Court appointed as a child's attorney ad-litem, parenting facilitator, and parenting coordinator.

I am Board Certified in Marital and Family Law by the Florida Bar. I hold an active license as a Certified Public Accountant and Certified Divorce Financial Analyst. I have also had training in the areas of parenting coordinator, collaborative Law, forensic accounting, and business valuations.
