Two Recent Legal Seminars Feature Speaker-Guest Attorney Michèle Bissada

Posted By Flicker, Kerin, Kruger & Bissada LLP

Menlo Park Family Law Attorney Michèle M. Bissada of Flicker, Kerin, Kruger & Bissada LLP has a long-held reputation of being knowledgeable and professional. She is a Certified Specialist in Family Law (ACFLS) and belongs to the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML). Due to her experience and prestige within the field of family law, she recently spoke at two legal seminars.

Ms. Bissada acted as moderator at the Overcoming Barriers Seminar on May 20th, 2017, co-sponsored by Sandhill Global Advisors and the San Mateo County Bar Association. Guest speakers during the three-hour presentation included the Honorable Marjorie Slabach (retired), Leslie Drozd PhD., and Pamela E. Pierson, Esq. The main topic of conversation was “What Attorneys and Judges Can Do When a Child Resists Contact with a Parent” and how to overcome real and perceived barriers in family law disputes and agreements. Attendants received continuing education credits (MCLE) and specialization credits for attending the seminar.

It is not uncommon for children to become distant with a parent after a divorce or separation. Overcoming Barriers is a nonprofit group that is committed to helping parents reconnect with their children following a family law dispute. With the information provided at the seminar, attendees can better serve the community by providing real solutions to child distancing behaviors.

Ms. Bissada also spoke on May 23rd, 2017 at Notre Dame de Namur University to the Clinical Psychology Graduate Department. Ms. Bissada held a 90-minute program on Family Law Crossover Issues, discussing how clinical psychology relates to law and ethics, and more specifically to Family Law issues. The course was meant to help students in the mental health field understand the issues they will face in practice when dealing with their clients who are going through a divorce or custody situation. Ms. Bissada helped students understand the level of interaction they will have with a Family Law attorney representing their client, based on the role the therapist takes for that particular client facing divorce or custody concerns.
