Description of Practice

I enjoy the practice of family law mediation because I consider myself as a peacemaker, serving as a bridge for parties to communicate during one of the most difficult times in their lives. I aspire to provide my clients with a sense of trust in my abilities to calmly move them through the mediation process and help them to craft reasonable and mutually-agreeable settlements. My mediation process is client-centered and tailored to meet the objectives of each party. Mediation is the only forum in which you have complete control over decision-making. Therefore, it is my job to help the parties navigate the settlement process and be the neutral voice in the room, and sometimes to be the objective voice of reason. As your Mediator, I will help you draft documents required by the Santa Clara County Superior Court, as well as file the required documents. I will educate parties on the law, while not advocating for either party. My goal is to help you settle your dispute because an amicable settlement is really a win-win for both sides, most especially when there are children involved.

Professional Background
