Warren formed a divorce mediation company, Divorce/Separation Mediation Services of Long Island, Ltd., more than 25 years ago to provide legal services for those parties who wish to resolve their matrimonial and family issues without retaining separate counsel and without being involved in the costly court supervised litigation process. The divorce mediation company is well recognized and has resolved hundreds of matrimonial/family disputes without the necessity of resorting to litigation, thus saving substantial monies by assisting those parties to maintain a good working relationship with each other for their own benefit and equally important, for the benefit of their children.
