This is the first time I was going for a mediation. And Dori clearly explained me how it works, what are the steps to be taken and how to proceed. She also give me a free consultation in the beginning and gave me clear expectations. I was not sure on going for this service in Thumbtack but it was worthwhile

Although I didn't end up using the service since the ex-wife and I came to an agreement. I had planned to use Dori as she was very informative and thorough. She was very responsive and answered all my questions. I kinda wished we had a longer sessions or had a 1 on1 if not for this pandemic. I would have rather had her as my personal mediator/advisor if that was an option to make sure that I exercised all my lawfully rights when it came to my divorce. Dont hesitate to ask for Dori and her service.

Dorit was awesome. Very fair and reasonable and she helped us reach an agreement by pointing out both sides of the argument without taking sides. Thorough and expedient as well.

It was truly a pleasure working with Off the Record Meditation Services LLC. Dorit was patient, knowledgable, and understanding from start to finish. She really worked hard to make sure we both left mediation feeling heard and valued. She really help put things into perspective that worked for each of us, and proactively work towards leading us to solutions that were not only fair but healthy and sustainable. I am truly grateful for her time, expertise, and genuine spirit. I would recommend her to anyone who is seeking trustworthy guidance and support, and a strong action plan to follow. She is great at what she does!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I am currently offering remote mediation services for $250/hour, and in-person sessions at a rate of $300/hour.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I offer a free 30 minute phone or zoom consultation to help you determine whether my mediation approach is right for your dispute. Preferably, this consultation is done with both parties. Depending on the complexity of the issue, I may ask that certain intake forms be filled out prior to the first session. The purpose of preparation is to ensure that our mediation time is used most efficiently.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I graduated Brooklyn Law School in 2012, with a J.D. and certificate in business law. During law school, I served as a debate coach for underserved Brooklyn youth, and won the CALI award for future excellence in accounting. I also interned in the New York Supreme Court, civil division, matrimonial part. I am licensed to practice law in New York and New Jersey, and I am pending admission in California. After witnessing numerous clients spend fortunes and waste years of their lives in litigation, I became interested in mediation. I obtained a DRPA certification in mediation in California, and I spent time shadowing skilled mediators to further hone my skills. I am committed to helping parties work together to obtain a mutually acceptable solution to their disputes at a fair price. My approach is to keep things simple, confidential, and efficient with the goal of preserving the parties' assets, reputations, and sanity.
