Rebecca Hughes Tran

Rebecca Tran is an experienced trial attorney who has been practicing law in Santa Clara County for more than 20 years. She is a Certified Family Law Specialist certified by the California State Bar Board of Legal Specialization. She serves as Judge Pro Tem in Superior Court at mandatory settlement conferences and on the default judgment calendar. She served for two years on the Santa Clara County Bar Association Judiciary Committee, which evaluates judicial candidates at the request of the California governor. She is a graduate of Smith College and the University of California, Davis, School of Law.

She provides both representation in contested cases and divorce mediation services. As a mediator, she works with both parties to resolve the case without court. Mediation is a more private and generally less expensive approach to dissolution (divorce). It allows parties to resolve the divorce, or certain issues relating to the marriage, in a non-adversarial setting. The parties meet in the firm's San Jose office, rather than appearing in court.

A mediator is a lawyer hired by both parties to help them understand and resolve legal and factual issues relating to the divorce. The mediator is not the lawyer for either party. When hired as a mediator, Rebecca educates both parties about the law and explains the legal procedures which must be followed for a divorce to occur in California. Rebecca also prepares those forms necessary to begin the divorce process and for final judgment of dissolution. Before opening her own family law practice in 2007, she spent six years at the firm McManis Faulkner where she handled business and corporate cases and took on several high-profile civil cases that went to trial with successful verdicts. At McManis she was also lead associate attorney on a number of high-asset divorce cases. Rebecca has handled numerous appeals and has argued several times before the Sixth District Court of Appeal. She is a member of the Vietnamese American Bar Association of Northern California and a volunteer for Maitri. She served for two years on the Board of Managers of the YMCA of Santa Clara Valley, Central Branch and the Santa Clara County Women Lawyers Committee. Before becoming a lawyer she was a reporter for the Gilroy Dispatch.

In her free time, Rebecca enjoys reading, investing, running, yoga and scuba diving.
