Mediation & Cooperative Resolution To Your Divorce And Family Law Issue

 We provide options to resolve your divorce and family law issue with far less stress and expense. 

A Focus On Family Law And Mediation

 Often, couples who do not agree on the terms of their divorce still wish  to avoid the expense of litigation. They also do not want to risk the  serious legal, financial or child custody consequences of making a  mistake in a "do-it-yourself" divorce. 

Avoid The Expense Of Going To Trial By Considering Non-Court Options

There are other options — good, creative solutions that are less expensive than litigation and less risky than do-it-yourself divorce. Plus, you do not have to forgo having the advice of an experienced Pleasanton family law attorney to help you through. You can call me at 925-460-8000 to arrange a consultation.

The Options Available To You

Mediation advocacy

 If  you and your spouse agree to allow me to mediate your divorce, you will  have the benefit of my 45-plus years of legal experience guiding you  and your spouse to an agreement that works for you and your children.  You can still hire an attorney to review the agreement if you wish and  still spend significantly less than going to court. 

Arbitration and private judging

With more than 45 years of trial experience, I can represent you in an  arbitration. An arbitration is an out-of-court procedure in which a  neutral person hears each party's side of the case and makes a decision.  I have also served as a neutral arbitrator in many cases. 

Collaborative law dispute resolution

 Through this voluntary, non-adversarial process, lawyers and clients are  encouraged to discuss the issues and share information. Both parties  have agreed that they will not go to court. If they wish to do so, they  will have to hire new lawyers. 

Cooperative negotiation

 Two attorneys negotiate without hidden agendas and agree to cooperate. 

Keep Your Divorce Out Of Court


With these alternative methods of resolving your divorce issues, you  do not have to choose between cost and quality. Additionally, when you  keep your divorce out of the courts, you retain the most control over  the outcome, which is especially important when determining custody and  support.

You know your children better than anyone else. A judge  or jury will rely on guidelines set by the legislature that are in no  way personalized to your family's situation
