John D. Guynn, Esquire

Attorney-Mediator

“I have chosen to pursue divorce mediation because I have spent my legal career delivering high-value legal services to middle-class and working-class families. I have tried to minimize the impact and expense of circumstances requiring legal representation, because I come from a working-class family. The astronomic expense of divorce can ruin the futures of both parties as well as any children they might have, and the ability to assist in facilitating an amicable separation that preserves as much wealth and peace for the family is something of which I am very proud. “
