San Diego Mediation Attorney
Mediation provides a couple with the best opportunity to resolve divorce issues efficiently, cost-effectively and with the least amount of stress.
Experienced mediators are adept at producing the best long-term solutions for everyone involved ? most often at a cost savings over litigation in family court. At Gerald M. Jeffrey, A Professional Law Corporation, in San Diego, California, many of my mediation cases are referrals from attorneys who are confident that I can help their clients reach agreement in their divorce case.
In mediation, couples resolve many of the issues that typically are litigated, including
- Child custody
- Child support
- Spousal support
- Division of assets and debts
A La Jolla Family Law Mediator Focused On Solutions
Because mediation takes advantage of the flexibility and creativity that a family court judge cannot always provide, it is important to retain the services of a mediator who has thorough knowledge of family law and a clear understanding of what is acceptable to the courts.
I am a graduate of the Harvard Mediation Program. I have practiced family law for more than 30 years, and I am one of only three lawyers in San Diego County who is listed in the Best Lawyers in America for both family law mediation and family law litigation.
Unlike family court judges, who are asked to churn through an enormous caseload, I am able to spend more time with each couple to determine their unique situation. The result is a solution that is tailored to each couple’s long-term needs ? and the needs of their children ? as they face post-divorce life. In mediation, I facilitate; the couples use creativity and a compromising spirit to develop positive solutions.
It is important to note that a mediator is not a judge or an arbitrator, so the decisions made by a mediator are not binding.
