Robin A. Devito, Esq. CFLS (Retired)

Carlsbad: 760-720-9890

After graduating with a Juris Doctor degree from California Western School of Law, Robin was admitted to the State Bar of California in 1983, at which time she began practicing Family Law in San Diego. She has a Bachelor's Degree from the University of California at San Diego.

Robin has been a Certified Specialist* in Family Law since 1993. She limits her court appearances to the North County Branch of the San Diego Superior Court in Vista. Her office is located in Carlsbad, California. She is a skilled and experienced litigator, but has been moving her practice toward Alternate Dispute Resolution and Private Judging as a more rewarding way of solving problems.

Robin was trained in mediation through the Northern California Mediation Center, by Joan Kelly and Nancy Davis, in 1994. She is a trained Collaborative Practitioner, and a member of both Collaborative Practice groups in San Diego, and the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals [IACP]. She conducts mediation, and handles Collaborative cases.

The emphasis of her practice is Alternate Dispute Resolution and Private Judging, each of which is consistent with her solution-seeking approach to resolving Family Law matters of all types. She is frequently hired by other lawyers as a mediator, settlement conference judge, arbitrator, or private judge, to help them resolve their clients' cases, and spends much of each week active in that capacity. As a lawyer, she handles all Family Law matters, including Divorce [Dissolution of Marriage], Legal Separation, Annulments [Nullity], Child Support, Spousal Support, Child Custody and Visitation, Support Arrearages, and Division of Property including high asset valuation and division of assets.

She has served as a Pro Tem Judge in the San Diego Superior Court, since 1989, and was chosen a "SuperLawyer" for San Diego in 2008-2014.
