Professionalism and Expertise
I highly recommend using Chris's mediation services if you find yourself in need of mediation. My first interaction with Chris was via a phone call where we explained our situation and desired outcome. After sending us some paperwork to complete along with instructions we were promptly scheduled for an in person meeting. Chris made herself available to answer any questions we had regarding the paperwork. Upon arrival to our mediation meeting we found she had everything prepared and organized which made what could be a not so pleasant meeting go very smoothly. After all parties discussed acceptable terms she drew up our documents and we were able to sign and notarize right there on the spot. This saved us time and money as we didn't have to take additional time off work. Chris even assisted us in getting a different court date when the date we were assigned was the one date neither of us were available due to a very important family obligation.
Chris's professionalism and expertise made the process of marriage dissolution extremely efficient and way more painless than had we used separate attorneys. The fee we paid was fair for the excellent service we received. Thank you Chris for helping us navigate this painful process.

Highly recommend Christine as a mediator. She took a very stressful situation and made it into a comfortable solution for both of us. Much better than having 2 lawyers going thru divorce attacks on each other. 😀

Easy to Work With
I can't say enough about Chris and Florand Mediation. We came to her for a second opinion after another well-regarded mediator quoted us a ridiculous amount of hours to complete our filing, despite literally everything already being agreed upon. Thank goodness we were also referred to Chris. She was easy to work with and was able to help us in far less time, which was a significant savings to us. Please do your research! Thanks to Chris' professionalism and expertise, our filing went smoothly.

Experienced and Efficient
I have had the opportunity to work with Christina Florand in the framework of a family law mediation wherein I represented one parent. Her professional, experienced and efficient approach was refreshing and promoted all sides, and the attorneys involved, to feel comfortable entrusting their personal case with her. I would absolutely utilize Christina as a mediator again and would highly recommend her to others.

Christina was absolutely amazing. She was supportive to both sides and extremely fair walking us through the entire divorce process. While I hope to never need her services again, I would highly recommend her services to anyone who needs a fair, just, mediator.

Absolutely Amazed, Thrilled and Impressed
My husband and I were in a battle after getting screwed over by a local contractor. We did not have the thousands of dollars it would have taken to have an attorney so we turned to Christina. She was amazing. She was able to talk to the lawyers and get them to negotiate a better deal. I was absolutely amazed, thrilled and impressed. She also kept in constant contact updating me as soon as she had information. It was so nice to have that burden lifted from our shoulders. She takes the time to explain everything and if need be she will be brutally honest, which I think is a great attribute. She is also very professional and great to work with. I highly recommend her!!

She Was Amazing
We worked with Chris on a parenting plan and she was amazing! She fairly and respectfully dealt with both parents and provided insight and expertise throughout the process. She provided clarity where there was ambiguity, along with alternate solutions to complex decisions. She effectively and efficiently produced a plan that worked for both parents together, and most importantly, for their child.

Professional and Courteous Manner
I used Ms. Florand on a recent divorce mediation. She is wonderful to work with and dealt with the parties in a professional and courteous manner. We were able to get it all worked out before the new year and happy to start a new endeavor in life. Thank you Ms. Florand for a seamless experience.

She Has Been a Gem
Since the time my ex and I reached out to Chris to go through our mediation, she has been a gem. The process for divorce can be tedious, and she made the day so easy for us. Would definitely recommend!

Well Equipped to Walk With
I first met Christina when she presented Florida divorce law as part of the four session series, titled divorce 101, offered for free through the women’s resource center. Her knowledge and professionalism impressed me. She fielded many questions and I left there feeling much more equipped in making decisions moving forward with the imminent divorce.
I chose Christine to mediate our divorce. Despite the 360 change of mind that occurred over the lunch break, Christina handled the situation with grace and ease guiding the parties to come to an equitable and fair marital settlement agreement.
Fast forward to six months later the QDRO, that was drawn up, did not reflect what we had agreed to. Christina not only amended the original agreement for us she did so displaying understanding and compassion for the pain and grief experienced in divorce.
The law is the law - save yourself time, energy and money! Christine is well equipped to walk with and work with you through the entire process making an unpleasant situation much better than projected!!!

My experience working with Christina, Florand Mediation, was exceptional. She was easy to talk with, she was compassionate towards my ex and I as we navigated through our divorce process; which was very difficult for both of us.
Christina had everything prepared for the day of our mediation meeting but she also took the time to talk with us and review prior to the actual appointment.
The amount of knowledge and experience Christina has saved us so much time, energy, and aggravation. I highly recommend her to anyone needing any type of mediation service.
Thank you Christina / Florand Mediation - my ex and I appreciate all you did to help us!!

I have had the pleasure of working with Christina Florand in the context of family law (divorce) mediation. Christina's experienced and measured approach makes the attorneys and spouses on both sides feel comfortable and promotes settlement of otherwise difficult cases. I would wholeheartedly recommend Christina as a mediator.

Surprisingly Fast and Efficient
I would definitely recommend Christina to anyone in need of a mediator. My ex-wife hired her so I was a bit skeptical. After our initial conversation, I felt relaxed and truly represented in a non bias way. She values all parties time and worked in a surprisingly fast and efficient way. After a few short hours, I was able to walk away feeling my requests were reached amicably. Thank-you Christina! David M.

Truly a Pleasure to Work with
Christina is outstanding! I reached out to her regarding a situation I did not know how to resolve, and I knew after a few minutes she was the one I wanted to work with! She is very pleasant, knowledgeable and generous with her time -- very refreshing in today's business climate! Christina is truly a pleasure to work with and I recommend her highly! 10 star service!!

Professional, Efficient and Fair
I highly recommend Ms. Chris Florand for mediation as I have been involved as an attorney with her as the mediator in over hundreds of cases. She has always been professional, efficient and fair with respect to the mediation process and with her interactions with the parties to the mediation.
- Bob Hoffman
She went above and beyond to help us get this divorce finalized. Worth every penny in my opinion. Also very informative and neutral to both parties. Highly recommended…
