An attorney with a diverse family law practice, I prefer to facilitate divorces through a confidential mediation process, rather than through high-conflict, adversarial litigation for such sensitive and intimate matters as are involved in dissolution of marriage. I have been a certified Mediator since 2005, for clients with and without attorneys involved. I am also happy to serve as a Consulting Attorney for one spouse in a mediated divorce or as a member of a Collaborative Family Law Team.

I adapt my mediation strategies and approaches to my clients' needs, availability and knowledge. I believe my life experience makes me ideally qualified to understand and navigate the challenges of parents struggling work/life balance. 

I am a member of the Los Angeles County Bar Association, Family Law Section, and the Beverly Hills Bar Association where I currently serve on the Executive Committee of the Alternative Dispute Resolution Section. I facilitate an advanced Mediation Study Group mentored by Forrest "Woody" Mosten.  My awards include the Wiley W. Manuel Certificate conferred by the State Bar of California for Pro Bono Legal Services (most recently in 2017) and several awards for my volunteer Pro Bono legal services from the Harriett Buhai Center for Family Law, the only organization in Los Angeles which provides free family law legal services.

I most recently had the honor of being included in the American Bar Association publication entitled: "Grit, The Secret to Advancement; Stories of Successful Women Lawyers" This book, published in August 2017, was a result of a study by the ABA Commission on Women in the Profession. 

I collaborate with other experienced professionals where appropriate, such as financial and mental health practitioners, including child specialists.

I also mediate contract disputes and litigated cases for the entertainment industry. My strong background in entertainment law also gives me subject matter expertise for mediations involving copyright and intellectual property matters.
