Description of Practice

I provide Family Law coaching and mediation services in the San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Kern and Los Angeles Counties. With three physical offices, Regus/WeWork and virtual (Zoom, etc.), I can accommodate you. Most of matters are divorce cases with child custody/visitation, property (house, cars, retirement) and child/spousal support issues. Many clients choose to seek coaching and mediation first because they realize the cost is much less than hiring an attorney, (financially, emotionally and time wise). Also, I have assisted clients who have spent thousands and thousands of dollars with their attorneys and have received very little for it other than frustration and anger. Coaching and mediation can be salvation to many who are either about to enter the family law arena, currently mired in it and need a way out or have gone through it all and need help in the aftermath.

Professional Background

I have worked in the legal field since 1988 and have been a registered and bonded Legal Document Assistant (LDA) since December 2001. I have assisted thousands of clients with family law related matters as an LDA and Coach/Mediator. See my website for more details.


Let me put my years of experience in dealing with family law related matters to use for you. Having assisted thousands of clients, I have heard just about every conceivable situation and in many cases have helped clients find solutions that they had not considered. My wheelhouse of experience and knowledge in family law and more importantly in practical solutions to issues is valuable in coming to a successful mediation and agreement.


Bachelor's of Science in Business Marketing. I am also a Registered and Bonded Legal Document Assistant (LDA) and Family Law Coach/Mediator.


I like to get to know my prospective clients. All coaches and mediators are not equal. I would like prospective clients to get a feel for me and vice versa. It is important to the success of any coaching and/or mediation process to feel confident going into and navigating through the matter.


My fees vary. My hourly rate is $275 for Coaching and Mediation sessions. My phone/virtual consultations are complimentary. Complete fee details are listed on my website

Other Information

Carl A. Knoll, the founder, has been in the legal industry since 1988. Early on, Carl realized that people became stressed when faced with legal issues—fear of legal ease and attorney fees. Many legal documents are form in nature and do not require an attorney or legal advice, so in December 2000 Carl founded his first legal document preparation self-help company—We Help You Legal. Preparation of basic legal documents do not necessarily need to be time consuming, difficult and expensive. On January 15, 2020, PINK Legal was born—ready to flourish and embark on this new journey. We’re easy, affordable and professional. PINK Legal is a modern document preparation company with old school values. Its employees are competent and caring. And, most importantly, PINK Legal is giving by donating a portion of its earnings to local non-profits to help promote and support social good.
