Our Qualifications as Mediators

David Kellem

David Kellem is the principal mediator at Kellem✶Mahoney Family Law & Mediation Group, P.C. He is one of only 35 MCFM Certified Mediators in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and one of only three MCFM Certified Mediators practicing in Hingham and on the South Shore. Whereas other area mediators are members of MCFM, the Certified Membership of MCFM represents “the best of the best.” You can find information about MCFM and a list of MCFM-Certified mediators at www.mcfm.org.

David has been working as a trained family mediator since 2003. He is a regular presenter at training workshops for mediators and divorce financial professionals, and a presenter in MCLE’s Mediation Training Program. David is a board member and vice president of MCFM. He initiated and developed a court-connected mediation program that was implemented in the Middlesex County Probate Court in 2014. He writes regularly in his blog, David’s Divorce Dictionary, about issues that pertain to divorce mediation.

Renee Mahoney

Renee Mahoney is also a member of MCFM and received her mediation training from MCLE in 2015. She often assists David in working with mediation clients and cases, and although the focus of her practice is on litigated divorce cases, she also conducts mediations upon request. Renee will work with clients on a reduced-fee basis depending on their economic circumstances.

Our mediators adhere to the Standards of Practice and Ethical Principles established by MCFM for member-mediators and Certified Mediators. These standards represent state-of-the art guidelines for the professional practice of mediation in Massachusetts.
