Description of Practice

Solving Family Disputes without going to court in order to reach a consensus that can benefit everyone is our motto. MPSV specializes in mediating any kind of family disputes arising out of trust & estate administration, wealth transfer, care of aging parents. We first focus on how to defuse participants’ hard feelings towards one another in order to identify possible solutions. This way, everyone involved can play an active role in the mediation process. Our high mediation success rate relies mostly on the unique and completely innovative approach to problem solving we created. We offer our clients transparency and truthfulness. We both are committed and results driven.

Linda has been an attorney in San Jose, California since 1982. Her practice specializes in trust, estate planning, trust administration, elders protection, and probate. Linda routinely takes classes at Stanford in neuroscience, brain functioning, compassion, and graphic recording which has proven to be very useful in developing our leading edge approach to mediation.
