Nina Weiss, Esq., an attorney/mediator and partner with the law firm of Serra/Weiss in Princeton, NJ, is a founding member of the Elder Mediation Center of New Jersey (EMCNJ).

Mediator Weiss was quoted in the March 2, 2008 edition of The Wall Street Journal in an article describing the growing recognition and use of elder mediation in resolving disputes involving elders and their family members. In describing the types of disputes in which mediation can be useful, the article states:

Mediation can be used to settle disagreements over living arrangements, how finances should be handled, who should be granted power of attorney, and even visitation rights among squabbling siblings. Agreements often specify the kinds of information, especially financial and medical updates, that will be provided to family members who live far away.
