Thomas D. Ferreira, Attorney & Mediator
Thomas D. Ferreira has been practicing law since his graduation from the University of San Diego School of law in 1987 and his admission to the California Bar that year. The father of two young children, Thomas endured his own divorce in 2005, and this changed his life and his career. It was then that he became interested in co-parenting and communication between co-parents after divorce.
In January of 2008 Thomas left his litigation practice to found Divorce Life Solutions, dedicated to helping parents resolve their conflict and cooperate in the raising of children. He developed a life coaching program to help divorcing parents disengage from conflict and create an ideal world for their children.
Thomas’s current focus is on mediation as the primary method to reach agreements on issues of parenting, support and division of property after separation and divorce. Thomas has completed the National Conflict Resolution Center’s basic and advanced mediation training, and is skilled at helping parties overcome the emotional issues that block agreement. He has done intensive research into methods to achieve a low-conflict, high-cooperation divorce, for the benefit of the children.
