Attorney-mediator Lani Baron is the founder of Alternative Divorce Solutions. Inspired by the experience of her parents’ highly contentious divorce as a child, Lani became intent on one thing: helping people do divorce better. She is firmly committed to assisting families in getting through divorce in a respectful and dignified manner.
Professional Career & Education
Lani’s journey to becoming a Long Beach mediation lawyer began with a position as a paralegal in a family mediation firm in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Her next objective was to get a solid education in dispute resolution and mediation at Straus Institute in Pepperdine, CA. From there she moved on in her legal training to Whittier Law School, where she graduated in the top 4% of her class.
After graduation, she immediately began a career at the Center for Mediated Divorce. As owner and head attorney-mediator, she had the opportunity to help hundreds of couples to resolve their divorces peacefully. With an ambition to improve the services available to her clients, Lani began Alternative Divorce Solutions.
