Anne B. Howard, Esq. has been licensed by the State of California since 2000 and has been voluntarily settling cases for the San Diego Family Court for over 15 years in her role as a Mandatory Settlement Judge.
She is passionate about keeping people out of the court system by resolving their cases without judicial intervention or helping people get out of the middle of the court system.
Anne believes mediation is particularly helpful when there are children in the family so children do not get “stuck in the middle” of their parents’ disagreements.
Anne has been working in the area of family law for over 30 years, as an attorney, a paralegal and a drug court administrator. Anne’s varied background includes handling juvenile, guardianship and conservatorship cases as well as family law cases. Her experience in handling a wide range of family-related cases gives her a different perspective to most other mediators.
Anne’s many years of experience enable her to help parties achieve creative solutions tailored to their family’s needs. Anne litigates but much prefers to mediate. Her litigation experience means she has a good idea of what parties could get in Court. Anne strongly believes that parties should have an idea of what they could get in court to enable them to make educated decisions when reaching an agreement.
Anne provides flat rate mediation services so that parties have an idea of how much the process will cost. Please check out her website at ABHMediation.com.
Anne generally mediates via Zoom but will do in-person mediation upon request.
Anne believes parties should know what their legal rights are so they can making informed decisions about they and their family’s future.
