She later obtained a Masters in Business Administration in Finance from Golden Gate University and graduated from Southwestern University School of Law.
Anne uses the business negotiation skills she learned in the corporate world to assist her family law clients that are negotiating child custody issues and the financial terms of a divorce. Anne also uses these negotiating skills to help her debt collection defense clients obtain agreeable settlements and payment plans with credit card companies. Anne practices in the areas of family law, debt collection defense and bankruptcy, and estate planning.
Anne believes that people are happier and more satisfied with the agreements they reach with the other party than if a Judge needs to make a decision. Anne helps her clients work out agreements with their spouses, their creditors, and the other side's attorney. Anne uses her negotiation skills and her mediation experience to help her clients reach better solutions than they may be able to obtain without her assistance.
Anne frequently works with opposing counsel to help her clients reach solutions to their legal problems. By working with opposing counsel, Anne is frequently able to save her clients money on their cases and avoid much of the stress and expense of court hearings and trials.
