I enjoy the practice of family law mediation because I consider
myself as a peacemaker, serving as a bridge for parties to
communicate during one of the most difficult times in their lives.
I aspire to provide my clients with a sense of trust in my
abilities to calmly move them through the mediation process and
help them to craft reasonable and mutually-agreeable settlements.
My mediation process is client-centered and tailored to meet the
objectives of each party. Mediation is a forum in which
you have complete control over decision-making. It is
my job to help the parties navigate the settlement process and be
the neutral voice in the room, and sometimes to be the objective
voice of reason. As your Mediator, I will help you draft
documents required by the Santa Clara County Superior Court, as
well as file the required documents. I will educate parties on
the law, while not advocating for either party.
My goal is to help you settle your dispute because an amicable
settlement is really a win-win for both sides, most especially
when there are children involved.
I have practiced Family Law for 23 years. I began my specialization in Mediation in 2010. I serve as a volunteer Collaborative Attorney, to resolve custody disputes in Family Court. My private practice involves Mediation, Collaborative Practice and Collaborative Prenuptial Agreements.
