Divorce Mediation & Consultation By An Experienced & Caring Family Law Attorney
It is possible to finish your divorce in less than a year, without going to court, without repeated trips to lawyers’ offices, without the expense of protracted conflict and loss of dignity and peace. This is the service I provide and have provided for many years to couples and families throughout California.
I aim for full client satisfaction. I have never had a client request a refund or fail to pay. 98% of my cases have resulted in a successful final resolution. I routinely get feedback from my clients that they did not feel pushed into an agreement and were very satisfied with the results.
My paralegal and I guide you through your divorce from start to finish. You get the information you need to make educated decisions and reach a final legal settlement on all issues, without worrying that you are giving up key legal rights. This is the most efficient and cost effective approach.
I offer a 20-minute free consultation to discuss your case, answer questions and determine if your case is a good fit for my services. I do this for both your benefit and mine. I do not have junior attorneys working for me and I handle all my clients personally, including being available by cell phone and email.
Ending a marriage is already hard enough.
Going through divorce shouldn't be harder.
THE STATISTICS: It is fairly common for couples in California to
spend $30,000-$60,000 (per person) to get divorced.
Some people spend over $100,000 in legal fees.
THE TRUTH: For the majority of couples, this isn’t necessary.
A complete divorce, done with legal expertise,
is possible for a fraction of that cost.
