Renee Shaffar, B.S.M., E.J.D. and Certified Divorce Mediator, was born and raised in Southern California, where she completed her undergraduate degree in Business Management at Pepperdine University. Renee’s own experience going through a divorce prompted her to go to law school, and she began studying at Concord Law School, now Purdue University, where she earned her Executive Juris Doctorate. After completing law school, Renee trained at the Alternative Divorce Solutions Institute for Best Practices in Divorce Mediation, where she earned her certificate as a certified divorce mediator. Renee is honored and proud to now be a part of the processes, prompted by her own divorce, that will make a positive impact on the lives of families in Long Beach and the surrounding areas.
