Clients who have educated themselves with correct information make my job easier and reduce attorney fees. However, clients who rely upon gossip from friends and neighbors for their legal education make my job harder and increase fees.
I am willing to review documents prepared by clients and it can work well for fairly simple forms.
Yes, I can coach from the sidelines.
During the Academic year of 2007-08, I taught at UC Davis School of Law, supervising the Family Protections Clinic.

I believe that in most family law cases, both parties have a better result through a mediated or negotiated approach. Most of the cases that I handle are resolved through one of those approaches.Personal interests:
