Pascha has been a licensed attorney in California since 1996, always practicing exclusively Family Law. Pascha took and passed an additional exam with the State Bar of California and received the status of a Certified Family Law Specialist* over 15 years ago. Family Law is Pascha's specialty and passion.
Pascha began her practice in the late 1990's as a family law litigator, representing hundreds of clients in complex divorce cases in the courtroom. Through her experience in the courtroom, it became clear to Pascha that the vast majority of family law cases could be resolved outside of court, saving separating couples and families the financial and emotional hardships of courtroom litigation.
About 15 years ago, Pascha shifted from her courtroom practice and began to focus her professional attention on family law mediation and then collaborative practice. Both of these models keep families out of court and promote cooperation, integrity, and maintain a focus on the best interests of the children. Pascha has expanded her practice to assisting engaged couples in creating meaningful premarital agreements and married couples in re-evaluating their marriage and creating new, long-standing commitments. Pascha has been through her own -very difficult- divorce and brings that compassion and understanding to her practice. She understands the complexities of divorce, both professionally and personally.
Pascha is a firm believer in mediation and collaboration and will work with you and your spouse/partner, to develop mutually acceptable agreements.
*Certified by the California State Bar Board of Legal Specialization
“Thank you, Pascha, for what you helped us to accomplish. I keep reflecting on how you helped us come to a complete agreement. At one point I thought our case was a lost cause, and then 45 minutes later, it was done. Your expertise and presence are awe-inspiring and I am so thankful to you.”
