Paula M. Lawhon

I am a Certified Family Specialist and full-time Family Law mediator serving clients in all San Francisco Bay Area counties. I have been an attorney for 16 years with my own Family Law Mediation firm for 11 years and have provided Mediation and Family Law training to other attorneys, mediators and therapists in addition to authoring Family Law Mediation articles in various publications. Our three attorney-mediators conduct mediations in San Francisco, San Rafael and Oakland. We mediate divorces, dissolutions of formal and non-formalized domestic partnerships and custody and parenting issues; we also mediate and provide consultations for pre-marital agreements and co-habitation agreements​. We have found integrative mediation (conducted jointly with a psychologist-mediator) to be an invaluable part of our practice in which the emotional aspects of a difficult or even traumatic situation can be managed and worked through to allow for more effective communication and creative settlements that truly meet the needs of each individual and family.
