Relevant Experience

Having practiced family law for over 25 years here in San Diego, which included extensive litigation, converting my practice to primarily collaborative family law matters has been a welcome change and one which has shown to have very positive results for its participants. I find the Collaborative process to be the most civilized manner in which to pursue a divorce and one in which the parties have a fighting chance to learn to respectfully communicate with one another, even after the divorce is final. After experiencing the damaging affects litigation can have on a family, I have personally seen the overall positive results and benefits the Collaborative practice can offer a family. I would not choose to practice family law any other way.
