Why We Are The Best

Most people who go through separation or divorce feel that the only way to handle the conflict between parties is through all-out legal warfare. This is simply not true. In fact, with the aid of our trained and experienced family law mediators and attorneys, divorcing parties successfully negotiate agreements through mediation and in doing so overcome very tough problems ranging from complex property and support issues to delicate matters involving parenting of children. Even if your relationship with your spouse is irreparable, we can guide you through the entire divorce process and help resolve virtually any family law matter without needless emotional and financial stress imposed on parties by the litigation process. Our practice is  exclusively concentrated in the area of divorce and family law mediation. Our service to clients through this alternative to litigation is in San Diego, Orange County and throughout Southern California.

Meet The Mediator

Scott F. Levin Esq, CDFA - Chief Peacekeeper™

Scott Levin is a 5-Star rated Attorney/Mediator and the principal of San Diego Divorce Mediation & Family Law. Scott exclusively provides mediation services for family law matters and does not ever represent a single divorcing spouse against the other in a traditional litigation setting. During his career as a litigation attorney, in-house corporate counsel, business owner and alternative resolution professional, Scott gained a passion for helping individuals and groups define and realize their preferred outcomes and in doing so focused his efforts on negotiating agreements that benefit all parties. Scott knows that mediation offers families – especially children – a more positive outcome than litigation. After years of experiencing the destructive “win-lose” litigation structure facing divorcing couples, Scott made the choice to put clients first and has developed a successful practice that fosters innovative solutions and mutually agreeable resolutions through collaboration, communication and cooperation.

Our goal is to provide a controlled, safe, and respectful environment for parties to craft tailor-made agreements to resolve their disputes through a fast and dignified process.

We strive to foster thoughtful communication between parties so that they may move forward in their lives and reduce the financial and emotional costs of litigation. Our mission is to minimize the negative effects of divorce by enabling the parties to move beyond conflict to achieve win-win cooperative agreements.
