Professional Background

Renee Shaffar, E.J.D. and Certified Divorce Mediator, was born and raised in Southern California, where she completed her undergraduate degree in Business Management at Pepperdine University. Renee’s own experience going through a divorce prompted her to go to law school, and she began studying at Concord Law School, where she earned her Executive Juris Doctorate. After completing law school, Renee trained at the Alternative Divorce Solutions Institute for Best Practices in Divorce Mediation, where she earned her certificate as a divorce mediator. Renee is proud to now be a part of the team that once guided her through her own divorce and is honored to make a positive impact on the lives of families in Long Beach and the surrounding areas.


It wasn’t until Renee’s own divorce that she began to understand the importance of how conflicts are handled and the impact a parent’s decision can have on the lives of their children. Renee chose divorce mediation to handle her own divorce and had the privilege of working with Lani Baron, the founder and CEO of Alternative Divorce Solutions.
