MEMBER SPOTLIGHT, AUGUST 2016
Justin L. Kelsey, Esq.
Skylark Law & Mediation, P.C.
Justin L. Kelsey, Esq. is a Mediator and Collaboratively trained lawyer. He is the owner of Skylark Law & Mediation, P.C. in Framingham, Massachusetts, where he works with four other attorney/mediators who all concentrate in resolving family and probate disputes peacefully.
Justin was recently recognized by the Massachusetts Council on Family Mediation (MCFM) as a Certified Mediator. MCFM is the first organization to certify family mediators in Massachusetts and certification is reserved for members of MCFM with significant mediation experience, advanced training, and education. Justin is also President-Elect of the Massachusetts Collaborative Law Council, sits on the Family Law Steering Committee of the Boston Bar Association, and is a member of the MCFM Board of Directors.
Skylark Law & Mediation, P.C. (formerly Kelsey & Trask, P.C) was the first firm in Massachusetts to create a Child Support Calculator App for the iPhone and has since created a Family Suite of Calculators for the iPhone, which offers a child support calculator, alimony calculator, alimony recapture calculator, and a full social security retirement age calculator. His firm’s website, Skylarklaw.com, offers a Parenting Plan Worksheet designed to help parents visualize potential parenting plans on a four-week calendar, and includes a non-gendered version of the worksheet as well.
Justin focuses his practice on Dispute Resolution for families and is very excited about the Massachusetts Bar Association's recent decision to create a Dispute Resolution Section. Justin has spoken at MCLE, the BBA, CDSC and the MBA on topics ranging from dispute resolution and mediation, to marketing & social media, to jurisdiction, child support and alimony, and he is always looking for new opportunities to train people in the art of peaceful conflict resolution.
Justin currently serves as one of the faculty for the MCLE Mediation training and the upcoming MCLC Introduction to Collaborative Law Training in September of 2016. For more information on that training, please visit MassCLC.org.
