I deal with issues arising in all areas of family law, and as a mediator I believe my substantive knowledge of family law practice is extremely helpful to my clients going through divorce in marital settlement mediations. I practice in an office suite of family law attorneys and mediators and am "Of Counsel" to the litigation practice of James R. Eliaser, an experienced and respected family law attorney. In addition, I have my own family law and mediation clients and continue to handle a number of pro bono cases for my favorite non-profit organization, the Harriett Buhai Center for Family Law.

I attended law school at the University of California, Los Angeles, ranking 7th in my class, serving on the Law Review and winning Moot Court Honors and admission to the Order of the Coif. In 1981, I joined the firm of Loeb and Loeb, where I practiced transactional Entertainment Law for several years. Finding big firm practice incompatible with child-bearing and my family's needs in particular, I worked as a professional writer and actor while raising three children together with my husband, a television writer-producer. In 2000, I was introduced to the Harriett Buhai Center, which provides free training in return for volunteer hours, and had such a rewarding experience there that when I decided to return to practicing law I changed my specialty and became a family law litigator. I do enjoy trial practice, but I found that our court system presents many difficult challenges for divorcing families and that litigation can do lasting harm. I embrace the peacemaking and transformational aspects of mediation, although I realize it is not for everyone or every case.

My experience in the legal profession -- and out of it -- has led me to create a program I call Returning Attorneys, designed to tap into the pool of non-practicing attorneys who would like to do community service while preparing to re-enter the practice of law.
