An increasing number of siblings are finding themselves co-owners of real estate and business assets, either as a result of an inheritance or a joint investment. Resolving the conflicts that will inevitably arise in these family partnerships requires a unique blend of psychological, legal, financial and practical mediation skills.

Judy Barber, a mediator and consultant, assists clients in resolving overlapping family and money conflicts. A founding member of the ABA Committee on the Psychological and Emotional Issues in Estate Planning, she is also a licensed family therapist. Frederick Hertz represents clients and serves as a mediator in matters involving co-ownership conflicts of families, siblings, spouses, cohabitants and domestic partners, and is the co-author of Nolo Press’ Legal Guide for Lesbian & Gay Couples and Living Together: A Legal Guide for Unmarried Couples.

There is no charge for this event. Members may bring guests.
Coffee, juice, and pastries will be served.
