Daria was fantastic! Very knowledgeable, so easy to work with. She helped me complete my divorce papers and prep me for what is coming ahead. I highly recommend her services!
David offered an initial consultation, during which he showed me was familiar with the type of case I needed handled, and also did a great job detailing the options I had available to me moving forward. His professionalism, expertise, and knowledge convinced me he was the right person for the job, and I ended up choosing to work with David. He was very prompt in communication, and worked with me closely to revise and ensure the final legal product created was to my satisfaction. Thank you David for the help. Hiring and working with a lawyer is rarely an experience I am enthusiastic about, but considering the situation for what it was, I am very happy I found David through Thumbtack because he helped me resolve a big headache.
Tran Divorce Mediation understands that your family law matter is more than just a case. Decisions you make during this process can have a long-lasting impact on you and your family. No matter the scope of your case, our team will work tirelessly to protect your rights and achieve a favorable result in your family law matter.
We are a full service family law firm handling divorce, divorce mediation, child custody, property division, child support, spousal support, and premarital agreements. After nearly 10 years working at family law firms in San Francisco, the peninsula, and the east bay, we founded East Bay Family Law & Mediation to provide direct assistance to clients in need. I am an East Bay native (San Ramon for high school, Berkeley for college) who moved back to the east bay to raise a family and open a business in the same local community in Castro Valley and Dublin.
I serve the whole person, not just filtering people through mediation like cattle or treating you as a dollar sign.
I offer legal consulting. I have 20 years of experience, including real estate, personal injury, insurance, business contracts, employment, intellectual property and family law.
We provide positive solutions for your family during a difficult period in your lives. Our services include the following: * parenting agreements * separation and property * settlement agreements * support agreements * antenuptial agreements * reconciliation agreements * parent-child agreements * cohabitation agreements Mediation is a voluntary, flexible, non-adversarial and confidential process for resolving your divorce or other family law issues, with the help of a neutral mediator who will assist you in reaching an agreement. Jackie is not a judge or arbitrator and cannot force anyone to do anything. Any agreement which is reached must be acceptable to both parties. You and your spouse retain complete control over your family law matter, and can be far more creative than the courts in designing a solution that works for your family. The entire tone of mediation is one of working together to reach a solution, rather than trying to vanquish or destroy the other party. There is usually great power in the negotiation and discussion by both parties together in a neutral setting. What is mediation and how does it work? · Mediation allows both parties to identify, negotiate and resolve the issues raised by the decision to divorce. · Each party will have an opportunity to ask all their questions about the process, and decide if mediation is right for them. A detailed agenda is formulated that includes gathering of relevant information, clarification of issues, identification of hot button items, draft settlement terms, cooling-off periods, and a resolution process. Each topic, such as alimony or holiday schedules, is discussed separately, so that the task of creating a complete agreement is broken down into manageable pieces. · Firm ground rules are established and the mediation takes place in a confidential environment so that emotionally charged issues can be talked about safely. You will be provided with informational hand-outs about the mediation process, and all forms are explained and information needed to accomplish a property settlement. We help both partners gather necessary information and review it systematically. · At times, Jackie lets the parties shape the negotiation; other times, she will guide their discussions. She will often formulate solutions that are more creative than the courts and more closely fit the needs of both parties. · When both partners are part of the process of creating parenting agreements and financial distribution plans, there is a better chance of meeting the needs of the entire family. Mediated divorces have a higher rate of satisfaction and long-range cooperation, and a lower frequency of costly returns to court.
Because divorce is a problem to be solved, not a battle to be won, I focus on alternatives to the court system through collaborative law and mediation. I believe that most families and children are best served by being supported to work together in resolving their family matters. The fundamental goal in both collaborative divorce and mediation is client empowerment. With either mediation or the collaborative process, you will have control of the decisions that are made and will be firmly supported, legally and emotionally, in achieving a successful dissolution of your relationship. This not only allows, but also encourages you and your partner to create, or leave open, lines of communication that are of enormous benefit to the whole family. Working as a team, we can achieve a successful resolution of the issues in dispute without the bitterness and acrimony engendered by the adversarial process.
My rates are flexible and negotiable based on your needs and budget. I am affordable and effective, and can assist you to more effectively and efficiently serve your clients. As a mediator I can do a good job serving as a neutral third party at a very reasonable rate.
I have worked in several industries, including as a family law attorney, federal investigator, and in both the liability and workers' compensation insurance arenas. This background gives me the ability to understand the issues in order to help the parties navigate their way to a solution built on their terms.
