Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

I am an experienced Private Judge-Mediator, specializing in Arbitration & Mediation for Divorce and Family Law matters. I practice throughout the Newport Beach-Costa Mesa, California area.

Private dispute resolution is a clear alternative to public litigation, helping to resolve legal matters with efficiency and fairness. A private hearing or trial can be scheduled at your convenience and in a comfortable environment. I am dedicated to achieving satisfactory resolutions for all parties.

Serving on the Orange County Superior Court bench for a decade has provided me with unique training, knowledge and legal understanding. I have seen thousands of cases, and am specifically trained to facilitate mutually agreeable solutions. I help parties resolve their legal matters quickly, creatively and cost-effectively.
