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 a member of the Collaborative Practice Golden Gate. This group is committed to conflict resolution outside of court.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
