About Lenore M.J. Myers
I am a peacemaker. I bring peace to the process of uncoupling, separation and divorce. I help couples approach their breakup from a perspective of peace. Through calm conversation, I help couples change their focus from defending what they think their significant other is trying to take from them to allowing each of them to look to fairly share in what they have built together as they separate.
I began my career as a peacemaker, in 1992, when I became a trained mediator in the area of family law, having received my certification from the National Center for Mediation Education.
In furtherance of my career as a peacemaker, I was appointed as part-time custody conciliator for Montgomery County in January 2010 where I still currently serve to assist families to reach peaceful agreements rather than have their custody cases resolved by judicial intervention. It is a position I thoroughly enjoy.
And while I have always sought to practice family law in a collaborative way, I have only just received my official certification as a Collaboratively Trained Lawyer in 2017.
My true calling has always been to be part of the solution rather than part of the problem. I am passionate about working with families and individuals transitioning through difficult life-changing events whether it is new marriages, separations, divorce, or custody or support issues. I help my clients avoid painful court battles and minimize conflict through peaceful discussion in order to reach mutually beneficial resolutions for them individually as well as the whole family.
As part of my family law/peacemaker career, I have continuously refined and honed my people skills. Many people have often complimented me on my insightfulness. This expertise has very often allowed me to accurately and effectively cut to the heart of a matter as I have developed the ability to recognize and make use of the nuances of each case in which I am involved. These skills have also allowed me to put most people (whether clients or lawyers) at ease.
Where there is a conflict I help mediate conflicting interests in such a way that everyone feels as if they have “won.” I do this by working to prevent misunderstandings by clearly stating the issues and the facts. I work to diffuse possible issues of conflict before they arise. I empathetically address all of a client’s issues and concerns making sure that everyone involved feels confident that all of their own concerns and issues have been satisfactorily addressed. As a result, I am able to cultivate in my clients a high level of confidence in my legal advice and skills. In this way, I am able to make sure that everyone involved feels confident that all of their own concerns and issues have been satisfactorily addressed and settled in a fair and peaceful way.
