Manhattan Beach, California 90266
Over 35 years of litigation in both criminal and family law courts have convinced me that families are far better served by collaboration. I continue to do some litigation, believing (at least for now) that litigation skills and experience can enhance, rather than detract from, my collaborative practice.
