About me

Alyson is very excited to be joining Challoner Law and to be working with clients in her hometown of Santa Rosa. She has returned to Sonoma County after receiving her education in Southern California and has discovered in Family Law, an area of practice that is both rewarding and challenging. In 2006 Alyson earned her bachelor degree from UCLA, graduating Summa Cum Laude and received both her Juris Doctorate and Certificate in Dispute Resolution from Pepperdine University School of Law.


Before joining the practice of Challoner Law, Alyson worked in the Sonoma County area for Le + Pelletier, LLP where she gained experience in Corporate law and Business development. While studying in Southern California she was a contracts administrator for PorchLight Entertainment, Inc. specializing in distributions and other aspects of Entertainment law. During her time at Pepperdine Alyson worked as research assistant to Professor Thomas Stopanowich in the areas of contract law, international commercial arbitration and other forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution. She has a strong background in mediation and seeks to incorporate much of this experience into her practice as a Family Law attorney.


"I believe in working closely with parents, couples and families to bring about the best solutions for all involved. My desire is to cultivate a practice that allows clients to feel involved in the legal outcomes that affect them and their families, and to help create an environment that is productive and healing during what can potentially be a very difficult time."
