  1. Mediation
    In Family Law there are high emotions & often high stakes, with repercussions that last a lifetime. Mediation can be empowering. It gives both Parties an opportunity to be heard & to mold the outcome of their case in a way litigation can't achieve.

I am a Certified Family Law Legal Specialist.  I have also completed specialized training in mediation, specifically geared at family law.  

I have always enjoyed practicing family law and I have handled a wide variety of family law matters over the years in Alameda and Contra Costa.

In my mediation practice, I truly feel mediation can be an invaluable tool in helping clients reach final resolution in their matter.  We often say that we are dealing with some of the best people going through what is likely one of the worst times in their lives.  It can cause tension, anxiety, animosity, and feelings of inadequacy and unfairness.  Mediation can allow clients to recognize those feelings and see the other person's perspective.  It may not mean you will agree with their perspective, but hopefully by seeing it, you are better able to understand and let go of some of the feelings that have kept you from resolving your case amicably, rather than through litigation. 

In litigation, we often hear Judges say, "If both parties are leaving unhappy, then I've probably done my job correctly."  Or, some variation thereof.  Meaning, that often we see both sides taking polar sides from the other, when the reality is that the solution and/or the law, falls somewhere in the middle.  While we try to avoid these circumstances, sometimes parties just cannot reach an agreement and litigation becomes necessary.  I'll do everything I can to help you avoid those costs and the turmoil that can put your family through. However, if litigation is necessary, I am here for you. 

We are now offering Estate Planning as part of our practice.  I am not currently practicing in probate litigation.

Highly Competent Attorney
I highly recommend Jagar Family Law. Chelsea was very responsive and listened to all my concerns. She didn't push for litigation and was a successful advocate for me in settlement discussions. She helped me close this chapter of my life and months later, I'm still convinced this was the right decision. Couldn't have gotten here without her competent advice. She's fair, realistic and doesn't play games with opposing counsel.

Integrity, Knowledgeable, Relief
I can’t say enough positive things about Chelsea. I was the party of a nasty divorce with a narcissist; which is the worst divorce to encounter. After having two previous attorneys that wanted to play games, I hired Chelsea to complete remaining items. She was thorough and direct on completing the issues and knows the law better than any other. I also compliment her on her integrity and class, both in and out of the courtroom. She has a positive reputation with judges. I am also available for talking via the phone if you have more detailed questions in choosing an attorney as choosing the wrong attorney could be very costly.

Focused, Realistic & Encouraging
Chelsea is knowledgeable and competent, and she has an excellent attitude. Her reasoned approach to my divorce made a big difference. In one of the more difficult moments for me, Chelsea was able to keep me focused - which is no easy matter. I am very grateful that I was able to work with Chelsea. Highly recommend.
