After another successful result, I asked her what she did when I send people to her. “We discover when they need a divorce or something more fundamental. When a divorce is what is needed, I send them back to you for divorce mediation” was her wise reply. -John Adams Fiske, Attorney, Cambridge, MA. “In the case of Bill and Sally, in the book, we were able to provide knowledge and clarity for the parties in the framework of the Seven Visual Steps, thereby addressing their deepest fears, and allowing them to reach mutually agreeable terms. Janet’s book should be read by everyone searching for a tried and true method of negotiation and decision-making.” -Chris Chen, CDFA, CFP, Insight Financial Strategists, Arlington, MA.
