Laurie Israel


I am a lawyer/mediator located in Brookline, Massachusetts, practicing family law, estate planning, and probate. My divorce practice has led me to an interest in marriages -- what makes them work, and what makes them fail. I'm a leader in the new area of mediation called "marital mediation." This is a mediation process to help married couples and people in committed relationships improve their marriages. My websites on this are and I've also become very interested in prenuptial agreements and the danger they pose, especially to first marriages. I'm the author of the forthcoming book, "The Generous Prenup: How to Support Your Marriage and Avoid the Pitfalls." My articles on prenups are aggregated in Visit that website to get on the sign-up list to receive a notice when "The Generous Prenup" is available. It will be published in early 2018.
