About Michèle Bissada

Ms. Bissada’s extensive knowledge and talent allow her to smoothly manage complicated, high-asset issues that are unique to family law. With over 25 years of experience, she is adept at guiding her clients through the often emotional process with confidence and sensitivity. Ms. Bissada brings these honed skills to her mediation practice as well; both as a consulting attorney, a mediator and offering services as a settlement judge. She is further trained in and practices collaborative law–a voluntary process providing an alternative for dispute resolution and settlement without going to Court.

Ms. Bissada is appointed by the Family Court Judges of Santa Clara County to serve as a Judge Pro Tem; a position reserved for well-known, reliable, and highly-esteemed lawyers in the community. Similarly, Ms. Bissada is appointed by the Judges of San Mateo County as an Arbitrator in fee disputes between attorneys and their clients, a role requiring demonstrated sensitivity and fairness. Both appointments exhibit Ms. Bissada’s on-going service to the community, as well as her reputation as a well-respected, objective and skilled leader. In her private practice, Ms. Bissada also serves as a mediator directly for parties in dissolution, or desiring of premarital or cohabitation agreements; as a neutral mediator for attorney-assisted mediation; and as a private settlement judge for family law matters, including complex financial and high conflict custody issues. These positions further give Ms. Bissada the unique experience to “sit” in the shoes of a neutral or Judge, a viewpoint essential to providing her clients with effective and efficient advice.
