Attorney Jill White
Jill White is an attorney mediator who has practiced family law since 1994. She is committed to helping clients reach agreements that will work for them and their families, without going through the expense, delay and stress of participating in the court process. Her areas of practice include divorce, legal separation, shared-parenting, and cooperative/collaborative prenuptial agreements.
Jill promotes a needs and interests based approach to resolving conflicts. She recognizes that divorce and family law issues are more than just legal events. Often there are emotional and psychological issues that shape how the clients communicate with each other. She works with the clients to determine which legal process is the best fit for them. One option is a mediation model in which Jill acts as the only neutral mediator. Another option is integrative mediation, across disciplines, a model that includes a second neutral mediator such as a financial specialist to sort out complex property and support issues or a mental health coach to facilitate communication.
Where the parties need more support, and each feels that their interests are best served by having their own attorneys, Jill works with them to build a team which consists of two attorneys and other collaboratively trained professionals with backgrounds and expertise in the areas of finance and coaching.
Jill is on the Board of Directors for Collaborative Practice Northbay and Integrative Mediation Bay Area. Both practice groups are committed to conflict resolution outside of court.
