At Shearer Law and Mediation we take pride in assisting our clients to work through some of the most difficult issues they will face in their lifetime and help them prepare for their future.  We understand how incredibly draining, stressful and financially challenging a Divorce is for the entire family.    

Separation, divorce, and child custody issues are emotionally and financially challenging under any circumstances. However, with the added difficulty in accessing Courts during the Covid-19 pandemic, it is even more important to consider alternatives to traditional litigation.  Divorce Mediation and Collaborative Divorce can be conducted wholly remotely and resolve the issues in an amicable and efficiently manner.  

Ms. Shearer is a Certified Family Law Specialist®, The State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization, and has been in practice since 1999. She is a trained Mediator and Collaborative Divorce Practitioner with over 20 years of experience.  

Ms. Shearer will personally meet with you via Zoom or telephone to gain insight into your unique situation and explain the alternative options available to you under California law, such as Mediation and Collaborative Divorce. Ms. Shearer will assist you in choosing the process that is best suited for your circumstances.

Ms. Shearer offers consulting attorney services to provide advice, insight and recommendations regarding your case if you are currently involved in litigation, mediation or a collaborative divorce using another attorney.  

Our office is pleased to offer Estate Planning services to ensure that your loved ones are cared and your wishes are carried out in the event of your disability or death.
