I have been practiicing law for 23 years and am a Certified Specialist in Family Law, by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization.
My experience includes years of practice at large family law firms where I managed cases involving diverse and complex family law issues for high net worth clients. I am committed to helping families resolve difficult family law problems with sensitivity and concern for the best interests of the children and the reduction of animosity between parties. I strive to guide my clients toward cost effective resolutions and approaches, while being a vigilant protector of their interests and rights.
I am also a family law mediator. I have resolved dozens of family law disputes as a Daily Settlement Officer with the Los Angeles Superior Court. I have completed mediation training with the Los Angeles County Bar Association.
I am on the Board of Directors of Haven Hills, a non-profit organization serving survivors of domestic violence. I am on the Executive Committee of the family law section of the Beverly Hills Bar Association. I have served on the Executive Committee of the family law section of the Los Angeles Bar Association and on the Board of Trustee of the Santa Monica Bar Association.
I have lectured to family law practitioners and paralegals on a variety of family law matters with the National Business Institute.
