Divorce Mediation and Estate Planning
The three secrets to a well managed life are planning, planning and planning.

Stein Legal Group works hand-in-hand with Liaise Mediated Divorce to assure our clients that their current and future needs are as buttoned-down as possible! Many divorce issues can be diffused and collaboratively managed by looking further into the future and making certain that Estate Plans are coordinated to the reorganized family needs and plans.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I was a pretty good litigator, I made a lot of money and got good results. But I am a GREAT mediator. I love to help people to manage what they think is unmanageable. My success rate approaches 100%.

We found that parties going through a divorce often require planning as to management of the future disposition of property, caring for children and pets. This is why we also practice in the area of Estate Planning and take great pride in being the comprehensive solution to people engaged in Marital Reorganization.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

In point of fact Liaise takes great pride in assisting our participants in learning as much as possible about the process in which they are engaged. Everyone we work with receives our presentation on the Fundamentals of California Family Law and Mediation.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

Happy to oblige! Not only will the review explore the legal efficacy of the documents, but just as importantly together we will make DOUBLE DOG certain that the documents are a true and accurate reflection of the intent of the parties. For other Frequently Asked Questions, please visit our FAQ.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

At Liaise we have a better solution. Rather than engage in an adversarial proceeding, we sit down with both parties help them to together realize the best path forward.

David Stein

After a 20-plus years of a successful career as a litigator in the area
of intellectual property and entertainment law, I saw a need for the
creation of a company that provided high quality mediation services at
a reasonable price. After spending over $5,000 for an afternoon with a
retired judge in a "mediation" session that was merely a glorified
"settlement conference" where the judge ineffectually did "shuttle
diplomacy" and tried to "twist arms" to get an agreement, I resolved to
create a company offering "true" mediation at an affordable price. My
training in interpersonal communications taught me that true mediation
required a higher degree of emotional intelligence and active listening
than I was seeing from the usual practitioners, which led me to
organize LiaiseĀ®.

David D. Stein

I was a partner in the boutique entertainment law firm of Simons & Stein. Obtained multi-million dollar judgment in G. P-Orridge v. American Recording/Rick Rubin.I worked my way through law school providing rock and roll concert security for Bill Graham Presents. Within a year I was a supervisor responsible for the safety of thousands. I was never tough, or handy with my fists, but I was quick with my wits. I learned how to diffuse situations, how to give would be combatants an "out" so they could disengage without "losing face." I could step between heavyweights and break up a fight because my emotional intelligence was keen and I was, for reasons I don't yet understand, unafraid. I still count the people I worked with back then as some of my closest friends.I blend laser-like insight and stress-busting humor. My clients tell me that I am a genuine peacemaker. Please check out my Yelp reviews.Personal interests: I have been a husband for over 25 years and a father for the last 13. My wife and I rescued three cats, one dog, one turtle, three tortoises and some birds. I play a game that I call golf, but a real golfer probably wouldn't recognize. I am on my hometown girls' softball board of directors where I also serve as the Commissioner for the upper age-group league. I volunteer at a local animal shelter.
