I am a family law attorney, mediator, Collaborative practitioner and arbitrator practicing primarily in Oakland, Livingston, Washtenaw, and Wayne counties since 1987. I am a trained Collaborative Divorce attorney and a past board member of the Collaborative Practice Institute of Michigan, (CPIM). I am also a past chair of the Family Mediation Council - Michigan, and Wayne County Chapter of the Family Mediation Council - Michigan.

My philosophy is to assist parties in getting through the family law arena as amicably as possible whether acting as an advocate for one party or a neutral for both parties. I believe that alternative dispute resolution options should be utilized whenever possible.

I have coached at various domestic mediation trainings, presented at family law, mediation and domestic violence seminars, served on the Mediation Advisory Board for the Institute of Continuing Legal Education, and provided volunteer services to various other organizations related to family law. I am married to attorney Carlo Martina and have four wonderful children.
