Biography

I have been certified by the California State Bar as a specialist in family law. I excel in helping individuals navigate some of the most difficult and painful experiences of their lives. I handle all issues related to divorce, legal separation, and parentage actions, including matters related to child custody, child support, spousal support, and complex property division. I also help clients wanting assistance with pre-marital and post-marital agreements. Additionally, I serve as a consulting attorney for clients in mediation and those seeking a second opinion.

I am also a divorce mediator who specializes in educating parties about the law while also supporting their freedom to create their own solutions that may differ from what would happen in a traditional litigated case. I completed an intensive 40-hour mediation training with the Center for Understanding in Conflict and am a Volunteer Mediator for the Contra Costa County Family Court Volunteer Mediator Settlement Program. My goal is to empower my clients to reach agreements that meet both their own individual interests and their shared goals while remaining informed of their legal rights.

For those cases that are not a good fit for mediation, I am a fierce advocate for my clients, and will stand up for their best interests in court and in negotiations with the other side. However, I believe that the best and most cost-efficient outcome is when a negotiated settlement can be reached outside of court. Therefore, I work hard to avoid litigation unless it is necessary. I tell my clients what they need to hear, and not necessarily what they want to hear, in order to help them achieve the best results for their case.

I also help families looking for assistance with uncontested adoptions. I completed the rigorous ALTO (Adoption Law Training Online) program and find great satisfaction in helping my clients complete the adoption process.
