Welcome to Online Dispute Resolution! I have practiced for 34 years as a California licensed attorney, and I have extensive education and experience in the legal fields of civil litigation, business, construction, real estate, equine, and entertainment, with broad courtroom and transactional experience handling complex matters in those areas.
My many wonderful clients have allowed me to enjoy a successful boutique law practice focused on providing access to excellent affordable legal services in a supportive, patient, expeditious and efficient manner. Some of my treasured clients have been with me for most of my 34 years as an attorney.
I bring that same level of commitment to offering state of the art online dispute resolution services, including online mediation, and many other methods and techniques to assist you in resolving your disputes and coming to agreement in a variety of circumstances. I have made it a priority to constantly update my training and skills to broaden my knowledge of the most current information in the dispute resolution field.
In 2010, I earned a Masters in Dispute Resolution (MDR) at the Straus Institute at Pepperdine University School of Law, for years ranked as the number one dispute resolution program. To earn that degree I studied all aspects of dispute resolution with the best instructors in the world, from Fall 2007 to Spring 2010. As part of my degree, in 2009, I traveled with Straus Institute to London and Geneva and studied international dispute resolution, and diplomacy techniques, including faith-based diplomacy, that I have applied to my practice.
Recently, in April and May of 2020, I studied and earned the designation from Mediate.com as a Certified Online Mediator and a Certified Online Family Mediator and have joined the panel of the exciting new dispute resolution website MediationExpress.com.
This broad base of knowledge and experience, including the international and faith-based diplomacy training, allows me the unique ability to tailor the mediation approach to your circumstances and subject matter. I look forward to talking with you and developing a personalized plan together to resolve your disputes.
