Deborah Noonan, JD is an experienced family law attorney who for the past 20 years has limited her practice to divorce mediation and Collaborative Divorce.

Deborah helps clients create quality solutions to meet their and their family’s individualized needs, bringing outside professionals, such as therapists and divorce financial specialists, into the process to promote a more holistic result. Deborah has had extensive mediation and Collaborative Divorce training and has presented on both topics at seminars and conferences.
