Family Law & Mediation

Divorce mediation can sound like a complicated process, but when it’s all said and done, and people go “wow, that was almost easy”; I know I’ve done my job right.

Lesa Koski, Esq. - Licensed Attorney; Divorce Mediator

I hope people say that every time they leave my office. My name is Lesa Koski and I am here to help you get through your divorce in as stress-less and pain-free manner. I believe that communication, trust, and compromise can help every situation end amicably. When people have these three things at their disposal, they can feel peace, calmness, empowerment, and just an overall sense that they have at least a bit of control over their lives. When you meet with me, you will find a caring, sympathetic ear that listens and you can trust. And that’s the beauty of divorce mediation: you can find someone who meshes with you.

Divorce mediation is a process that enables couples to work through their issues, regardless of what has happened in the past. The goal of mediation is to aid couples in moving forward with their lives. A listening ear and an open heart are the most powerful things that a mediator can provide to a divorcing couple.

Divorce Mediation Is Like The Swan

My views on divorce mediation are simple. I believe that the goal for divorcing couples is to achieve peace, calmness, and a sense that they have some control over their lives. Mediation is a lot like a swan that glides on a pond. The swan is content, calm. It glides peacefully, not necessarily happy, but not sad either. The swan is at peace, and I hope every couple who comes to me achieves this.

At Lesa Koski Mediation, I offer a number of different services for clients going through the process of divorce. These include:

The mediation process allows people to work through their fate together, deciding what is best for them and their children. Divorcing couples want to be part of the decision-making process, and mediation allows this. Beyond this, mediation is time and cost effective. Give me a call today and I’m sure you’ll find a listening ear that will hear your concerns and help you walk through your divorce amicably.

Experienced Divorce Mediation

I am a state qualified neutral who became interested in mediation during law school more than 15 years ago. I grew up in the Stillwater and Woodbury area and now live in Hudson, WI. I care about the people around me and want to see everyone leading the life they hoped they would. I believe wholeheartedly in family and divorce mediation and am dedicated to making a difficult divorce or family situation as painless as possible.

I have been mediating all my life, no matter what my job title declared. I feel that communication is very important and that most problems come from a breakdown in communication. When people can communicate and compromise, problems can be resolved.

Even when I was young, I was always looking for creative and constructive ways to help my friends and family work through their issues. Friends would consult me when they wanted advice. Family members sought out my opinion because they claimed I listened and would thoroughly contemplate their situations. So it seems only natural for me to be in this role. And more than anything, I love helping people. I want to help you get the relief and empowerment you deserve.

My office is located in Woodbury, and I am here to help people from around the area move with all of their divorce issues. I help people with their divorce issues in the east Twin Cities metro and western Wisconsin, St. Croix County and Washington County, as well as the specific cities of Afton, Hudson, Lake Elmo, Lakeland, Maplewood, North St. Paul, Oakdale, Stillwater, St. Croix Valley, St. Paul, and Woodbury.
