As a licensed attorney with over 15 years of experience, I can assist you with a variety of legal needs beyond basic mediation. Below is a sampling of what services High Desert Mediation can provide to you.  


Within the mediation profession, many of the most innovative conflict resolution methods were created by experienced family law attorneys who “hung up their boxing gloves” and used their legal expertise and experience working within the legal system to create better ways of avoiding it – by settling out of court using mediation.


Arbitration is a method used to end 

disputes. Unlike litigation, arbitration takes place out of court. The two sides select an impartial third party, known as as arbitrator, and agree in 

advance to comply with the arbitrator's decision. The two sides then meet with the arbitrator, who, after hearing both sides' positions, makes a decision that is binding in court.


The process of divorce can be challenging, and questions may arise as you are making these life-changing decisions. If you need help during your personal evaluative process, please contact me. I can help you better understand the divorce process and confidentially examine your case, strength of position, and options.

Document Review

With over 15 years of experience practicing family law, I can assist you with reviewing the documents you have prepared. Additionally I offer detailed review of mediated agreement drafts to assure they meet your expectations, protect your rights, and cover unexpected situations that may arise in the future. 


Drafting your own legal documents can be difficult, and court forms rarely cover all of the unique details of your case. If you need assistance, regardless of where you are in your legal process, I can draft your documents and take care of some of the stress and burden associated with your legal process.
