Frisco earned his Doctor of Jurisprudence from the University of Southern California, graduating at the top of his class as a member of both the Law Review and the Order of the Coif. He began his legal career as a corporate transactional attorney with the international firm of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher. He then went on to spend almost a decade with the elite Beverly Hills family law firm of Jaffe and Clemens.
Frisco’s work as a family law attorney and mediator is based on the premise that when parties to a dispute are able to truly hear and understand the needs of the other, they will find a mutually beneficial solution to the disagreement. In almost all instances this is preferable to a resolution imposed by a third party with no personal connection to the dispute (aka, a judge). However, Frisco also understands that mediation is not a good fit for all divorce proceedings and he represents such clients in court with dedication and care.
