Ms. Tseng began her legal career with a Washington, D.C. area law firm, handling business litigation, medical malpractice, employment discrimination, and other complex litigation cases. In May 2001, she joined a law firm in downtown Raleigh, where she handled workers' compensation, employment law, civil rights, personal injury, family law, professional malpractice, and contract cases. In May 2003, she joined a firm in Durham, focusing on employment law, workers' compensation, SSDI appeals, family law, and general civil litigation. The Wake Law Office was established in May 2006, serving primarily the Wake County area.
Since 2012, Ms. Tseng has been certified as a Family Financial Mediator and Superior Court mediator through the North Carolina Dispute Resolution Commission. Ms. Tseng became trained in the collaborative divorce process in 2012 and has maintained and honed her skills actively representing clients in collaborative divorce, organizing networking lunches for area collaborative professionals, and attending specialized continuing education courses.
As someone who negotiated her own amicable divorce and has joint custody of a child, and having assisted relatives and friends through their divorces and custody conflicts, Ms. Tseng is particularly sensitive and attuned to the issues her clients face. She welcomes the opportunity to educate more people about the collaborative divorce procedure and work together for a peaceful resolution of their family law matters.
