ABOUT THE MEDIATOR
         Attorney Melissa Whish has been a Family Law Practicioner for 23 years. In recent years, due to her personal style and aptitude for reaching resolution, she was referred by fellow practicioners to mediate a number of divorces. Through this experience, she came to realize her strengths in this process and the advantages it offered to the divorcing parties. 
This led attorney Whish to supplement her 20 years of experience with formal training as a Divorce Mediator through Divorce Mediation Training Associates and to found Mediation Matters.
Attorney Whish graduated cum laude from Regis College with a B.A. in Communications in 1982. Following college, she spent 2 years in computer sales and as Corporate Communications Coordinator for Leading Edge Computers. 
Melissa then received her J.D. from New England School of Law in 1988. While at NESL, attorney Whish published an article in the New England Journal on Criminal and Civil Confinement which was subsequently cited in a 2007 American University Law Journal Article: Lessons from Hurricane Katrina: Prison Emergency Preparedness as a Constitutional Imperative.
Following graduation, attorney Whish began her career in Family Law as an associate in a firm in Dedham, MA. In 1994, attorney Whish opened her own practice in Rockland, MA continuing to specialize in Family Law.
