Michael Aurit is a wonderful mediator, and truly cares about his clients. The divorce process is a stressful, and emotional life event, but The Aurit Center’s excellent staff assist couples respectfully, and constructively to work thorough the entire process. They are available, and responsive to any, and all questions during the mediation. I highly recommend The Aurit Center for Divorce Mediation.

Michael is a great mediator. He has a high level of skill. He used a consistent and logical process. More importantly, Michael displayed excellent situational awareness — he knew when to jump in, and when to stay out of the way. The entire Aurit team was professional and respectful. They made a difficult circumstance easier to bear.

I feel very fortunate to have found Michael and Karen Aurit to guide me through my divorce mediation. Things were explained at a comfortable level and the process made me feel like I was in control of the outcome. Michael was always professional as well as compassionate toward our feelings. Of course, divorce is difficult to go through, but I could not have imagined it happening any other way!
Thank you, Michael and Karen Aurit.

My experience with the Aurit Center was truly amazing. Michael made a difficult situation easier to process. He was very caring and informative. If there was a question I had he would take the time to get the information requested to help. The office experience was very hospitable and warm. Although I dislike divorce, Michael makes the experience easier to navigate and I am thankful. I would recommend the Aurit Center For Mediation to anyone, who has to go through divorce.
