Ms. Zakheim was licensed by the California State Bar in 1996 after graduating Loyola School of Law (New Orleans). She practices Family Law as well as Immigration and serves all counties throughout the Bay Area. Her approach to cases (especially divorce matters) is to do everything possible to work with her client and the opposing side to reach an amicable settlement that avoids costly litigation. However, in matters where settlement can't be reached, she can be an aggressive litigator, fighting for her client's rights.
In addition to English, Ms. Zakheim also speaks Russian.
