At San Diego Divorce Mediation, founding partner and Certified Divorce Financial Analyst Scott Levin is an experienced family law attorney with a finance background that allows him to understand complex financial issues. As a full-time mediator, Scott never litigates cases that pivot one person against the other, and in turn, destroys and bankrupts families. Our experience, training, and credentials are among the best in the country, and our peace-first point of view differentiates us from all others.

Scott Levin is a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst which is a rare and difficult certification to achieve.

The CDFA is issued by the Institute of Divorce Financial Analysts, the premier national organization dedicated to the certification and education of financial professionals in the divorce arena. Founded in 1993, the IDFA provides specialized training to accounting, financial, and legal professionals in the field of divorce financial planning.
