About Yasmin

Learn Yasmin’s areas of practice.

I am experienced family law attorney who has been practicing over 11 years. I handle client matters from case inception through settlement. I represent clients in public court, the private judging venue and mediation. 

Prior to joining The Law Offices of Peter G. Loewenstein, I practiced family law at a small boutique family law firm in Alameda after graduating from the University of San Francisco School of Law and passing the bar in 2002. I am an active member of the legal community and was board member of the Alameda County Bar Association and a member of the Inns of Court. I was Chair of the Barristers Section of the Alameda County Bar for two years and was awarded the Distinguished Service Award for a Barrister from the Alameda County Bar Association for 2007. I am currently on the Family Law Executive Committee of the Alameda County Bar.
