Custody and parenting decisions should not be made by strangers in a courtroom. Litigation is hard on adults and even harder on children. I help clients think creatively to find solutions that improve outcomes for children and build co-parenting relationships.

Clients are busy and have better things to do with their time than focus on tedious court paperwork. Clients also want the flexibility to meet when and where it's convenient. Let's meet where everyone is comfortable, on your schedule, and I will get the paperwork done so that you can focus on more important things.  

I was a family law litigator for 17 years. Now I am a family law mediator, focusing exclusively on solving problems out of the courtroom. I have been a Certified Family Law Specialist* since 2008, dealing with all issues of divorce, separation and parentage including custody, support, division of property and business valuation. *State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization.

Mediation saves money and valuable time. By charging reasonable fees and working from a virtual office I can charge much less per hour than many family law mediators.
