Divorce is a difficult time for everyone in the family, and enduring the added stresses of open court litigation can be an unnecessary personal and financial burden. The Law Office of Mitchell A. Jacobs assists couples seeking fair, private and professional mediation.

Los Angeles divorce attorney and Board Certified Family Law Specialist, Mitchell A. Jacobs brings more than 36 years of experience, authoritative information and rational judgment to the table when guiding couples through a fair and just negotiation, ensuring both parties rights are protected in a mediated settlement.


The mediation process should result in a fair and just agreement on issues that may arise during a divorce, without having to battle in court. The role of a mediator is to assist a couple in reaching an agreement that can be submitted to a judge for approval, and in certain instances, such as custody disputes, mediation may be required by law before a couple can proceed to litigating any differences.

A mediator does not represent either party. His or her job is to find common points of agreement and to facilitate rational discussion and any resulting compromises that may be agreeable to both parties. Significant time and money may be saved through the mediation process – even when agreement can only be reached on some of the issues.

What is mediation?


  • Can address all issues that may arise including:
    • Property division
    • Child custody and visitation
    • Child support
  • Significant time and money saved outside of court
  • Unbiased 3rd party guidance
  • May be required by law before litigating differences
  • Ease of stress on family
  • Agreements are more likely to be adhered to in the future
