We know first-hand how devastating divorce can be because our lives have been affected by it, too.
That's why we mediate each case personally and do everything we can to make divorce less expensive, less time-consuming and less stressful for you and your children.
Equitable Mediation Co-Founders
My ex and I made the right choice by mediating our divorce. No lawyers, no fighting with strangers involved... We were able to negotiate and collectively make decisions with our children in mind. I don't know why everyone wouldn't just mediate and go through this difficult process with dignity.

My therapist highly recommended the two of you as experts in the field. And boy was she right. “A” and I would have been lost without your expert guidance. Thank you!

Being self-employed is hard enough. Throw a divorce on top of it, and it’s a nightmare. Thank you Joe for helping us sort through my complex finances and come to an agreement that was fair to both of us.

Downtown Chicago offers endless dining and entertainment, gorgeous architecture and corporations to advance your career. Not to mention a wide array of divorce mediation professionals who can help Cook County couples end their marriage.
But you don’t live in Chicago. You live in Evanston. And sometimes you just don’t want to trek downtown to get the expert help you need.
That’s why we’ve begun to offer our expert divorce mediation services in Evanston.
By offering mediation where you live, we hope to ease the stress and anxiety surrounding your divorce and make things a bit more convenient for you and your spouse.
So you and your spouse can focus on more important things like getting through your divorce peacefully and cost-effectively. Instead of listening to the announcer on the Purple Line say, “We expect to be moving shortly,” while you stress out about being late to your mediation appointment in The Loop.
We know that taking the first step is a big decision.
But if you and your spouse live in the Evanston area, have both agreed to divorce and want to use mediation to peacefully and cost-effectively end your marriage, book an initial meeting for the two of you today.
