Family Law California
/ New York - Attorney Profile
Since 1994, Wendy Landes, a former family-law litigator admitted
to practice law both in New York and California, has devoted her
practice to resolving family-law cases out of court.
She works with couples and individual parties by helping them
select the most suitable process to obtain a divorce. Then, by
serving as a mediator, collaborative divorce attorney or consulting
attorney to participants in divorce mediation, Landes guides clients
through the divorce process.
Because many divorcing couples don’t realize that divorce
can be handled in several different ways, Landes has devoted a
large portion of her career to educating the public on alternative
divorce options. These options such as mediation and collaborative
divorce helps avoid the devastation that often occurs in families
going through the traditional divorce process.
Landes, an active participant in the California State Bar and
the Los Angeles family-law community, works closely with the Superior
Court of Los Angeles to streamline the processing of mediated
and collaborative divorce judgments. She has co-authored pamphlets
and literature on divorce options for distribution by the courts
(see “Resources” section). In addition, Landes has
presented numerous public-education programs on the topic of mediation.
As current chair of the State Bar Alternate Dispute Resolution
Committee, Family Law Section, Landes reviews and proposes new
legislation concerning mediation.
Landes is an Advanced Practitioner with the Association for Conflict
Resolution (ACR) and a member of Family Law Attorney Mediators
Engaged in Study (FLAMES). She is also actively involved with
Los Angeles Collaborative Family Law Attorneys (LACFLA), Los Angeles
Westside Collaborative Divorce Practice Group (LAWCDP), International
Academy of Colloborative Professionals (IACP)and the Beverly Hills,
Santa Monica and Los Angeles Bar Associations.
After completing basic and advanced mediation training from the
Straus Institute of Dispute Resolution at the Pepperdine University
School of Law, Landes also received additional training from the
Center for Mediation and Law. She has completed two collaborative
law training seminars sponsored by LACFLA.
Landes was admitted to the New York Bar in 1981 and to the California
Bar in 1994. She graduated from the Cardozo School of Law of Yeshiva
University (J.D. 1980) and earned her undergraduate degree from
the University of Pennsylvania (B.A. 1977, Magna Cum Laude).
Landes serves clients in the Los Angeles, Ventura and Orange
County areas. As a member of the New York State Bar, Landes is
also equipped to mediate divorces between individuals who reside
in the separate states of New York and California, as well as
represent individual clients in bi-coastal non-litigated or collaborative
