As an over 28 year practicing attorney and a certified family law specialist (State Bar of CA, Board of Legal Specialization) since 1999, my goal is to make a meaningful difference in my client's lives by offering fresh approaches and creative options for resolving conflicts. I became an attorney because I wanted to guide and counsel clients and stand up for those who need a voice. I can explore with you which process is the best fit whether traditional (court) divorce, a mediated divorce, or a collaborative divorce. I have extensive experience in all these forms of conflict resolution. I take a whole-family view of divorce. Prior to founding Zonder Family Law in 2003, I worked with celebrity divorce law firms in Beverly Hills and LA handling complex and high net worth divorce cases including valuation and division of business interests. I have extensive training in substantive family law litigation as well as over 120 hours focused exclusively on advanced mediation (Pepperdine Straus Institute) and Collaborative Divorce.
