Ariel Winger was admitted to the California State Bar in 1996 and has practiced family law exclusively since 1999. After years of litigating domestic-violence cases, Ariel turned to Mediation and Collaborative Divorce as a more humane, holistic, and cost-effective alternative to the traditionally combative, court-based model of divorce. She has been offering non-adversarial, out-of-court divorce options since 2007.

With a background in psychology and counseling, as a child of divorce, and as a single parent after her long-term marriage ended, Ariel is especially sensitive to the emotional and financial issues that strain most family law cases.

Having worked with diverse populations and non-traditional families for over 20 years, Ariel has extensive experience assisting LGBTQ and poly families, and offers compassionate and non-judgmental services to parting couples of all races, ethnicities, socio-economic status’, sexual orientation and gender identities.

Ariel Winger Testimonial
I hired Ariel to mitigate my divorce which was very stressful. I have two children which made it even more emotional. Ariel was extremely professional and made a very stressful process as smooth as possible. She also helped with the time lines by moving it along faster then most divorces I've heard about. I recommend Ariel very much.

Ariel was very easy to work with. She helped me sort out the difficult task of paperwork. Ariel guided me on what I needed to gather and helped me along with the many forms to fill and send out. Ariel is real ally and I she represented me in a very proffessional manor. I highly recommend her.
