I am a full-time Family Law Mediator and Certified Specialist in Family Law. Our Family Law Mediation Team works with families to focus on creative solutions and enforceable agreements.
In divorce cases, we initiate the court case, prepare financial disclosures, draft the formal Marital Settlement Agreement, and submit the final agreement to the court to complete the case. We enjoy working with clients who are open to brainstorming and collaborating to find alternative solutions and who come into mediation with an open mind and willingness to listen to the other party and accept guidance and coaching from the mediator to help navigate the process.
In premarital and postmarital agreement mediations, we enjoy brainstorming with the couple to help achieve financial and non-financial goals to support their relationship.
I have been practicing law since 1999 and have been a full time mediator since 2007. I received my law degree from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law (now UC Law San Francisco) in 1999, graduating as a Public Interest Scholar and with a Public Interest Concentration. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Criminology, Law and Society from the School of Social Ecology at the University of California, Irvine in 1996, graduating cum laude and phi beta kappa.
