1 Program with Dennis Seymour, Esq.

This year marks my twenty-ninth wedding anniversary to Peggy Ann Russell, who is also my paralegal. We are blessed with two adult children, both graduates of Coronado High School. Our son serves our country in the United States Army. Our daughter is a fine artist and a graduate of the Chicago Art Institute. We live in San Diego.

I attended Stanford University (1973-4) and transferred to the University of California, Berkeley (B.A. English 1977, B.S. Biology of Natural Resources 1978). I attended law school at the University of California, Berkeley [Boalt Hall] and Harvard Law School during my third year as part of a still-continuing annual exchange of five students from each school. I earned a Juris Doctor (J.D.) in 1984. While at Harvard, I took my first courses in mediation. I have encouraged and practiced mediation throughout my career. In 2002, I earned a Masters of Law in Taxation at the University of San Diego. I continued mediation training at the National Conflict Resolution Center. My areas of expertise include complex family law settlement and mediation cases.

Between undergraduate and law school studies, I taught junior high school students in Fairbanks, Alaska, and on the Winnebago Indian Reservation in Nebraska. After graduation from law school, I worked for three years on the Navajo Indian Reservation as a staff and managing attorney of D.N.A. People's Legal Services, Inc., in Window Rock, Arizona. D.N.A. is the largest federally funded Indian Legal Services program in the country and serves the Navajo and Hopi nations out of several offices located in Arizona, Utah, and New Mexico.
