Mediation Services


As a seasoned litigation attorney, I have spent years advocating for my clients in courtrooms across California. However, I have come to realize that litigation isn’t always the best solution for resolving disputes. That’s why I have shifted my focus to mediation, where I can leverage my expertise to help parties find common ground and reach mutually beneficial outcomes. With my extensive legal background and deep understanding of the mediation process, I am uniquely equipped to guide you through even the most complex disputes. Thank you for considering me as your mediator.
