CONFLICT RESOLUTION EXPERIENCE
From 1989 until his retirement from the Superior Court Family Law Department in 2014, Commissioner Endman handled Mandatory and Voluntary settlement conferences, Law and Motion matters, and all phases of family law trials. A private practitioner from 1969-1988, he was one of the two original attorneys invited by the Family Law Supervising Judge to be on the child support defense panel.

Hisquierdo was one of the few family law cases ever heard by the Supreme Court.
