Description of Practice

As an attorney, I have practiced family law for over 35 years. I was approved by the California State Bar Board of Legal Specialization as a Certified Family Law Specialist when that specialty was first offered in 1980. Since that time I have practiced exclusively in the field of Family Law and Adoptions. In 1990, I completed a 40 hour intensive mediation study program and I have been handling divorce mediation cases since then. I have been honored by my peers by being selected as a past Chair of Certified Family Law Specialist Committee of the San Diego Bar Association; as a member of the State Bar Family Law Section Executive Committee for 10 years and as a past president of the Southern California Chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.

I know family law and take yearly legal education courses to make sure my knowledge is up to date. In order to assist my mediation clients better, I have taken advanced mediation seminars through the Association of Attorney Mediators; the Strauss Mediation Program at Pepperdine University and through the American Bar Association. For many years, I have participated as a volunteer settlement judge at Family Law Court.
