Sarah Davis, Legal
A practicing Family Law attorney since 1984, Certified Family Law Specialist* Sarah Davis pioneered interdisciplinary mediation of marital dissolutions beginning in 1988 and has used the collaborative model since its inception.
Respected for her professional integrity and insight, Sarah has served as Judge Pro Tem in San Francisco and Alameda Counties. She has trained mediators and attorneys for California Lawyers for the Arts and the Volunteer Legal Services Program of The Bar Association of San Francisco (BASF). BASF has recognized her for Outstanding Pro Bono Services in Family Law. California Lawyer Magazine named Sarah one of the top ten “Heart and Soul” Practitioners and San Francisco Attorney Magazine featured her in “Changing Lives, Accessing Justice.”
As a practitioner, Sarah knows how to solve problems creatively and respectfully. She can help you determine whether interdisciplinary mediation, collaboration or litigation is the right model for you. She understands how interdisciplinary mediation and the collaborative model can work for you by minimizing the economic and emotional destructiveness of your conflict, ultimately allowing you to resolve your dispute in a more respectful, relaxed and conscious manner than litigation promotes. Interdisciplinary processes do not eliminate inevitable conflict, but instead help you focus on the issues that are important to you, avoid inflicting and suffering unnecessary pain, find the win-win solution, and nurture your creativity so that you and your former life partner can survive and thrive. The safe environment created by the model allows you to transform fear into positive action, unleashing energy to inspire solutions that are tailored to your individual needs and the needs of your family. While ending up in court is always a possibility when you are trying to resolve a legal dispute, Sarah believes that in most situations interdisciplinary work will conserve family emotional and financial resources, leading to better solutions and a healthier, happier post divorce life for every family member.
