Family Law Mediator



Clients are busy, and have better things to do with their time than focus on tedious court paperwork. I assist mediation clients with preparing and filing documents, allowing clients to 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 and parentage, including custody, support, division of property and business valuation. *State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization.

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

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.
