Local company growing as more couples choose mediation over traditional divorce.
Malta, NY – Michele Martin, divorce mediator and President of Divorce Agree of Saratoga Springs, NY is proud to announce that Victoria Niles has joined the company as Vice President of Marketing. Niles will be responsible for driving sales by targeting appropriate media outlets and educating attorneys, counselors and the public about divorce mediation and why it is the best option for divorcing couples.
Niles has over 20 years of experience in marketing including positions at Cabi Clothing, Quaker Oats and Playtex. She also served as Chief Operating Officer of Harrinco Enterprises.
Mediation is a non-adversarial and cost effective option available to divorcing couples. In New York, a divorce that goes to trial can cost upwards of $50,000 or more, whereas a mediated divorce might cost between $2,000 and $7,000. Mediation also affords the couple control over the divorce process and allows creative solutions to problems that might otherwise be decided by a judge. Mediation can also help couples avoid the animosity so common in divorce.
Niles said “I am excited to join Divorce Agree and to educate referring professionals and the public about divorce mediation and to spread the word that there is an alternative to a “traditional” divorce that is less adversarial, more efficient and significantly less expensive. Divorce Mediation is an idea whose time has come.”
Divorce mediation, when pursued, has a 90% success rate in coming to settlement agreements that keep couples out of court and studies show that mediated agreements are more likely to be honored by the parties than litigated settlements. Because of this more and more courts in the U.S. are ordering couples try mediation before taking their divorce to the courts.
Martin said “I am thrilled to have Vicki on board and to benefit from her energy and network. Our goal is that when couples decide to divorce they think mediation first and call Divorce Agree.”
