Reviews of Mediation Offices
Our mediation was, "an excellent process, with excellent professionalism and presentation...which helped make an unpleasant process as positive and supportive as possible. We walked away with warmth and respect for each other. I can't think of a better way to have done our divorce, and wish we'd started out with mediation because it was a flexible response versus the huge hammer wielded by our previous lawyers. It's too bad mediation doesn't hold some kind of pre-marriage workshop teaching communication, problems solving and empathy skills because the skills we learned would've helped our marriage, I think."
"Unmani dedicates herself to resolving disputes with equanimity, respecting the emotional needs and wishes of each party at the table. She is even-handed, neutral, and unbiased in her counsel. Unmani explains the implications of family law clearly. She also provided appropriate referrals to additional professionals. If you choose mediation - (the only sane way) - to complete your divorce from your once beloved, inviting Unmani Sarasvati to facilitate is a brilliant choice. My ex-wife and I are pleased with the outcome of our process with Unmani and recommend her highly."
“Unmani handled the mediation for my divorce and considering the circumstances, it was a very fluid process. I felt she was exceptionally considerate of both my, and my ex-husband's, feelings, and addressed all of our rather complicated concerns in a professional, yet caring manner. Unmani stayed in touch with me through the aftermath of the mediation to guide me through the end of the paperwork, and was consistently thoughtful, and thorough.”
"I want to compliment you and your team. You did a great job of making a very hard process as smooth as it was and you did your best to minimize the stress and trauma of an inherently stressful and traumatic event."
"I don't want anyone to have to go through the pain of divorce, but working with [Unmani] and having [her] compassion and humor made it an almost pleasurable experience."
“As [my husband and I] were committed to working things out amicably, Unmani was a clear and obvious choice. Unmani enabled us to make our transition in a way that was consistent with our vision of what the best possible scenario could be for both of us and for our children’s experience as well.”
“There is one principal reason to choose Unmani as your [Collaborative] attorney: She cares. Divorce is a terrible experience - working with an attorney who is humane, genuine and down to earth makes navigating the perilous waters of [the divorce process], and negotiation less stressful and anxiety provoking. A magnificently skilled communicator, Unmani knows how to mediate and negotiate. Her skills are top notch and her legal prowess is excellent.”
“Thank you for your kind, calm energy and your wise guidance through a difficult and often deeply painful process. You have my deepest gratitude for that, as well as my highest regard for your personal grace and humility.”
“Thank you, Unmani, for shepherding and teaching with such sensitivity, and for mediating so judiciously. I appreciate the unique talents you brought to the process.”
“Thanks again for all your work. Your process gave us the structure to work through the contorted legal system focused on our intentions rather than strategies and tactics. Divorce was still one of the hardest things I have experienced. By removing the burdens of the legal process, I can also say it was one of the greatest growing experiences of my life.”
“Thank you for your help; I appreciate your taking the time to meet with us; providing us with the information we needed, and making this whole process as quick and painless as possible.”
"Thank you for the mediation process. Although heart breaking and difficult, I can't imagine that we could have had a better guide. Thank you."
"Thank you for all your work. I think it is safe to say that we are happy to have closure with the divorce process and are grateful that it was a civil and amiable process."
