Dann Johns, Divorce Mediator & Attorney

I help spouses divorce peacefully, through divorce mediation. Working together we can complete a Pennsylvania mediation divorce without setting foot in court.

These are my ideals working as a divorce mediator:

  1. Peace—I am committed to peaceful resolution of all divorce issues.
  2. Impartiality—I do not pick sides for or against either spouse.
  3. Kindness—I am kind to both spouses.

Divorce mediator and Pennsylvania lawyer

Not all divorce mediators are lawyers. Because I am a divorce attorney licensed in Pennsylvania as well as a divorce mediator, I can assist spouses with their entire Pennsylvania mediation divorce.

Using my 12+ years of divorce mediator experience, I help wives and husbands calmly discuss and decide terms of their divorce. During divorce mediation sessions:

  • I make sure spouses discuss all necessary divorce topics.
  • I provide important information (legal, tax, financial, parenting) so each spouse may make informed decisions.
  • I stay neutral, making it easier for spouses to discuss and decide matters.

When all terms of divorce have been decided, I use my 32+ years of divorce lawyer experience to:

  • draft Pennsylvania divorce documents, to make the terms decided in divorce mediation sessions legally enforceable,
  • assist with filing for a Pennsylvania divorce decree.

❝By my nature I am a peace-maker. From the time I began practicing law in 1988, clients and colleagues often mentioned my calming presence. Realizing that I am a helper—not a fighter—I focus my career on helping spouses divorce peacefully. I like to think I am making this world a more peaceful place for families.❞


An entire Pennsylvania mediation divorce can be completed in the privacy of my office. I provide all services required, from a free consultation about divorce mediation to requesting a Pennsylvania divorce decree. Spouses can divorce without setting foot in court.

Divorce mediator who empowers parents

As a parent and grandparent myself, I deeply respect the decision-making role of parents. Mothers and fathers know their family better than anyone. In a mediation divorce, it's parents who make all the decisions about child custody and child support—not judges or lawyers.

I am confident that parents, with just the right amount of help from a divorce mediator, can divorce on their own terms. I believe that parents who are willing to mediate can solve almost any problem. In fact, about 9 in 10 parents who try divorce mediation reach agreement on custody, support, distribution of marital property, and other important matters.

Divorce attorney who lowers the cost of divorce

Before I limited my law practice to divorce mediation, I handled courtroom divorces for twenty-two years. In court cases, I saw attorneys charge fees as high as thirty thousand dollars for divorce! I saw anger and fighting turn spouses and parents into enemies. I knew there had to be a better way.

Spouses who are willing to discuss the terms of their divorce together—with help from a mediator—can avoid ugly and expensive courtroom battles. When a divorcing couple is willing to try mediation, I do my best to help them stay on the path of peace.
