There are a few decisions you will need to make in order to settle your case. Besides choosing a method to use (such as mediation and collaborative law), you will need to make sure you and your mediator and/or lawyer are a good fit. Leslie Howell is an experienced yet passionate mediator and lawyer. She cares because she understands what parties in your situation are going through.
Although Leslie’s focus is on settling cases, she continues to litigate in Los Angeles County. The fact that she continues to litigate gives her insight into current judicial trends, which is quite valuable at settlement meetings.
If you have a family law matter that you wish to resolve amicably, Leslie can keep your costs down through mediation, collaborative law or limited scope representation (where she can do certain tasks for you but you continue to represent yourself).
