Walnut Creek Litigation Mediation Process Attorney
A Focus on Avoiding Litigation
In my more than 20 years of legal experience, I have seen that the more amicable your divorce can be, the less likely you are to wind up in court involved in litigation.
If your lawyer is not skilled in negotiating and overcoming obstacles to a settlement, it can be all too easy for conflicts over parenting, support or community property division disputes to overshadow the hope of coming to a negotiated, satisfactory divorce judgment.

Avoiding Litigation and Protecting Children
Conflict becomes costly in court and it takes the control out of your hands and gives it to the judge. It is harder on children and may make it hard for you to co-parent effectively after divorce.
As a family law attorney with more than 28 years' legal experience and a person who has been through divorce, I understand how hard the process can be on you, on your finances and on your children. Mediation can help to minimize costly and protracted custody and property division battles.
Certified Mediator and Certified Family Law Specialist by the State Bar of California
I am a certified mediator and certified as a family law specialist by the California Board of Legal Specialization, a designation earned from my legal peers after many years of experience handling family law matters.
You can retain a mediator to help you and your spouse work through all the different aspects of your divorce together, or you can each retain a lawyer and hire a mediator to facilitate a settlement among all of you.
Mediation Process Provides Independence and Allows You to Participate
I have witnessed that mediated agreements tend to be more beneficial to both parties, because both have vested a part of themselves directly in the agreement, as opposed to my litigating issues on a client's behalf.
