Marvin really made the whole process of our separation and divorce much easier. He helped us approach what could have been a very difficult situation (kids, shared property, etc.) with care, professionalism, and impartial mediation services.

Marvin was an indispensable guide to me and my ex as we navigated the complicated waters of putting together a co-parenting plan for our beloved toddler daughter.

The end of a relationship is no picnic and itʼs especially difficult when there is a child involved. But Marvin always made himself available to us in the lead up to mediation and on more than one occasion took the time to hop on a phone call to answer our questions.
Along the way Marvin supplied us with all the materials we might need to educate ourselves about the relevant topics so that our mediation could proceed as efficiently as possible, avoiding surprise and hurt feelings.
When it came time for the actual mediation session, Marvin was balanced, patient, and informed. The experience of working with him left me with great respect for his trade and specifically Marvinʼs ability to make all parties feel heard without bias.
We completed the session with a document everyone understood and could agree on. Marvin even took the time to do updates on our final draft so all parties were happy with specific wording.
In the end, mediation with Marvin Whistler was painless. Which is really saying something considering how painful the end of a relationship can be.

I would highly recommend enlisting Marvin Whistlerʼs mediation services if you ever have the unenviable need of reaching an agreement when agreement seems impossible.
