Experienced Divorce Mediator
If you are looking for a first-class divorce mediator, then you’ve come to the right place. Our lead mediator, Shawn Weber, is a trained neutral mediator and a master of dispute resolution and settlement. He is known as a premier San Diego divorce mediator in the legal and mental health community. We know that all divorce cases have conflict and that a case won’t settle until we get to the bottom of the emotional and the legal needs of the case. That’s why Weber Dispute Resolution faces conflict head-on instead of avoiding it like others. Working to get to the heart of the dispute, we help parties find pathways to settlement. Shawn’s clients know his warmth, empathy, and humanity, which sets him apart.
All of our attorneys are trained in divorce mediation. As a result, we have the know how to help you settle your case. What’s more, Shawn is a co-founder of the Family Resolution Insitute where he provides divorce mediation training to other professionals.
More “Dolphin” Than “Shark”
We get it that family law disputes often invoke the most primal of human emotions. Because issues like custody, prenuptial agreements, child support, spousal support or separation can be emotionally charged and tough to address, we coach you on how to navigate the constantly changing currents of family law. Applying our Dolphin Lawyering philosophy, we take a holistic approach and analogize the lawyer to a dolphin instead of the more popular stereotype of a shark.
With broad experience only in family law, we know that divorce is not just a legal process, it’s a human experience. As a result, we strive to make your contact with the legal system less confusing and painful.
Aside from the core question of WHETHER to divorce, we understand that the question of HOW to divorce is critical. Because it is simply the most influential question, we start by having you answer “What Type of Family Law Process Do You Need to Experience?“. Whether you choose mediation, collaborative divorce or simple consultation, we help you develop a case plan, so you are clear on the steps, goals, and milestones to expect along the way. As a result, you will experience a high level of clarity and communication that will ease your mind and give you a sense of control which is not typically found in working with other firms.
