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.
Ms. Goade, I’m sure rarely has a easy job negotiating between two people trying to divide up their assets. Yet she explained offers to each party being professional yet in a concerned way. I appreciate her sticking it out through hours of our settlement. It takes a special person to do this job with fairness and keeping judgements to herself unless she clearly saw a way to make a fair settlement between both parties. I think she is excellent at her job. Thank you
Ann was very professional and listened to both sides. She was realistic and managed healthy expectations. I’m really happy with the results.
Ann did a great job getting both parties to cooperate in the process and we came to an agreement in less than 2 hours. I appreciate her expertise in meditating and in law.
Ann was great! Very prompt in responding to our initial emails as well as emails throughout the process. She made what could have been a very stressful and tense conversation seem easy. She helped us navigate a situation we had never experienced and made us feel confident that we were receiving the best advice. I highly recommend her! Thanks, Ann!
Ann is sensible and sticks to the facts. I appreciate her directness and ability to see the big picture. She’s goal oriented and straightforward. I highly recommend her.
Ann made everything for me seamless. She was very caring and professional. She made sure both parties were listened to and made suggestions that were knowledgeable. I would highly recommend her!
I would definitely recommend Mrs. Ann Goade, she made the entire process easier, great service.
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.
