About me

Jami Fosgate's family law practice is devoted to helping parties save time, money and stress by resolving their problems through Mediation and Collaborative Law without resorting to litigation. Jami Fosgate also provides Limited Scope Representation and Legal Document Preparation at a flat fee for parties who want to control the costs of their family law case. An individual one-hour consultation is available for a reduced flat fee of $195.00. A couple  who schedules a joint meeting together will receive a FREE consultation to learn the benefits of not litigating a family law matter. Appointments are available in the evenings and on Saturday.


Jami Fosgate graduated magna cum laude from the University of Southern California with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Broadcast-Journalism and was elected to membership in Phi Beta Kappa and Phi Kappa Phi.  She worked for several years as a television news reporter/anchor and newspaper reporter before embarking on a career in marketing and media buying. 

Following her own divorce, Ms. Fosgate decided to pursue a new path and enrolled in Loyola Law School where she was on the Dean's List each semester, was active in the Evening Women's Law Association, was selected for membership in the St. Thomas More Law Honor Society and earned the award for "Best Oral Advocate" in the annual Scott Moot Court Competition.

While attending law school, Ms. Fosgate served as a judicial extern to the Honorable Lawrence W. Crispo (Ret.) at Los Angeles Superior Court and she worked for two years as a law clerk at California's premier appellate firm, Horvitz & Levy.

Ms. Fosgate graduated in the top 15% of her class and was licensed by the California State Bar in December 2004.  Ms. Fosgate is admitted to practice law before all California courts and the United States District Court, Central District. 

Upon graduation from Loyola Law School, Ms. Fosgate was selected to serve for two years as a Law Clerk for Los Angeles Superior Court in Civil Law and Motion.  Since 2006, Ms. Fosgate has devoted her practice exclusively to Family Law and she is a graduate of Woody Mosten's Divorce Mediation training program.  She has completed the Los Angeles Collaborative Family Law Association collaborative training and has completed Basic and Advanced Mediation training through the Los Angeles County Bar Association's Center for Civic Mediation. Ms. Fosgate regularly attends continuing education seminars for statutory and legal case updates and to enhance her mediation skills and collaborative techniques.  Ms. Fosgate is a volunteer mediator and settlement office for Los Angeles Superior Court and volunteer collaborative attorney for the Loyola Law School-LACFLA Collaborative Law Project.
