Margaret Hand

Margaret M. Hand, Hartog, Baer & Hand, has been mediating disputes arising under the Probate Code since 2004 and has litigated these disputes since 1993.

She is proud of her tenacity and her ability to remain calm in emotionally charged situations. She trained at Harvard’s Program on Negotiation in a facilitative approach to mediation, but she is confident of her subject-matter expertise and can be as pushy as the parties might need. Hand is a graduate of Berkeley Law, a fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel, and is the author of many probate law practice guides.
