    Attorney Profile

    With more than 30 years of legal experience, Lisa R. Murray of Chase, Berenstein and Murray, Counselors at Law, provides family law services from its law office in Burlingame, California.

    Ms. Murray devotes her practice equally among family law mediation, Collaborative Practice and litigation. As the owner of Chase, Berenstein and Murray, Counselors at Law, she ensures that her focus is on helping clients resolve family issues amicably and equitably, especially when children are involved. She believes mediation and Collaboration Practice give parents more options when determining their children's future and how they will be cared for. However, she also knows that in some cases, litigation is the best way to resolve issues.

    Not only is she experienced with litigation and mediation, she also practices the full team model of Collaborative Practice, where spouses can develop open communication and resolve their disputes without going to court. This is based on a belief that if communication problems are not addressed before the divorce negotiations, both parties could end up unsatisfied with the result. The Collaborative model includes working with financial, mental health, vocational and real estate professionals so that the couple receives the assistance they need to reach an efficient and satisfactory conclusion.

    Ms. Murray is licensed in California and Hawaii, and she belongs to state and local bar associations' family law sections. She is also a member of the Collaborative Practice San Mateo County, Collaborative Practice San Francisco, and the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals.
