Lani Baron, Attorney-Mediator, is the founder of Alternative Divorce Solutions. As a child, Lani witnessed her parents’ highly-litigated and contentious divorce and she knew that there needed to be a change in the system. This life experience inspired Lani to begin her career in alternative dispute resolution early on.
Lani started her professional life as a paralegal at a small family mediation firm in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Shortly thereafter, Lani moved to California to study at Pepperdine’s Straus Institute, where she focused on courses relating to dispute resolution and mediation. Her passion for helping others also prompted her desire to excel in her legal education, and she graduated from Whittier Law School in the top 4% of her class.
Immediately after graduating law school, Lani took on the role of owner and head attorney-mediator at Center for Mediated Divorce. There, she assisted hundreds of couples in settling their divorces peacefully.
Lani has been the recipient of several awards, including being named as an honoree in Riviera Magazine’s Dynamic Women and Power Players editions in 2013. In addition, Lani was nominated for the prestigious OC Business Journal Awards for Women in Business and Entrepreneur of the Year in 2014.
