About Ann

Ann M. Goade is an attorney specializing in mediation of family law cases. She has over 35 years of private practice experience and has been a certified family law mediator since 1993.

Due to her years in private practice, Ms. Goade understands that going to trial is rarely in the clients’ best interests, particularly in family matters.

Mediation is particularly well suited to the family arena. It is based upon finding solutions to problems with the aid of a neutral third party. Ms. Goade understands that when people realize their voices are being heard and considered, they become invested in the settlement process and are satisfied with the ultimate mediated agreement.

Additionally, parties to a mediated settlement agreement tend to abide by the terms set forth in their agreement more than parties who have the terms of their divorce forced upon them by court. This, in turn, leads to fewer returns to the courtroom.

Many of Ms. Goade’s clients are referred to her by attorneys in Stuart, Hobe Sound, Palm City, West Palm Beach, Palm Beach, Jupiter, Tequesta, and throughout Martin and St. Lucie counties. Her professional reputation, ethical standards, and proven ability have earned her a solid reputation as a trusted family law mediator..
