I am a family law attorney and mediator. My practice is settlement focused and dedicated to finding peaceful and lasting resolutions. After years working with divorcing clients in the traditional litigation process, I became determined to bring a different approach to my clients who, through their divorce or parenting disputes, were required to go through the court process. I became trained in Collaborative Family Law in 2003 and began working with clients in the Collaborative Process. I began mediating in 1999 as volunteer mediator in the Los Angeles Superior Court's Family Law Mediation panel, and basic, advanced and ongoing training and experience as a family law mediator.
