My goal is to resolve family law matters through mediation, whether private or Pro Se
Ann M. Goade is the premier family law mediator on the Treasure Coast. Ms. Goade has been certified as a family law and dependency mediator by the Florida Supreme Court since 1993.
Although a family law attorney, Ms. Goade limits her practice to family law mediation. So much so that in 2006 she was awarded Advanced Practitioner status for Family Law by the elite Association for Conflict Resolution. Through the mediation process, each party can be heard and raise any specific issues and concerns. It is the role of the mediator to listen and impartially distill the information. Hence, each litigant hears what the other side is saying and can react to that position without argument or anger. The mediator then brings each side closer through the negotiation process to the point where, in many cases, an agreement can be reached.
Excellent mediator. Cleared up three years of BS in about three hours. Very professional
Ann Goade is a wonderful mediator. She listens and learns from the litigants. She is able to find a middle ground for them to agree upon and move on with their lives. She handles all the paper work and gets it signed and filed with the court promptly. She is professional in every aspect of the mediation process, never losing her focus even when confronted with someone who is hostile to the other litigant.
Ms. Goade is knowledgable, accommodative, caring and considerate. Having had dealings with her on three separate occasions, I found her to be even handed non judgemental and fair. I suggest any person who found her less than professional should consider their position to have been far from reasonable. Thank you Ann, I found you to be an asset, when few were.
