Your Business Tagline
I'm here to support you through this.
It’s so easy to get married (or intertwine your life with someone to the point that, for all intents and purposes, you are married). Separation or divorce - that's an entirely different matter.
There are a multitude of issues that must be dealt with and having a seasoned family law attorney to assist with every aspect of this process is vital. I strive to reach the best possible solution for my clients by conducting a thorough intake interview and exploring all of our options, with an eye toward resolving matters through a more mediative or collaborative process, rather than charging into court.
However, that is not always possible and some cases simply must go before a judge. In that instance, I am an aggressive advocate for my client’s best interests.
California was the first state to adopt a “no fault” basis for divorce. You need not prove the reason you want or are entitled to a divorce, but I believe your reasons are vital to understanding the case dynamic. I like to get to know each of my clients and understand their position and where they are coming from. Family law is the most personal area of legal practice there is. We deal with the issues nearest and dearest to our hearts: children and money.
Family law, especially in California, is very dynamic; it changes all the time. It is crucial to retain an attorney that knows the laws and can provide the knowledge needed to successfully finalize a family law case. With issues such as child custody, visitation and support, and an equitable distribution of the marital estate – both assets and debts - to take into consideration, it is vital to have a qualified legal representative looking out for the client's best interests.
I will work to resolve your case as quickly as possible while minimizing your legal expenses. I care about my client’s future and well-being and provide personalized service.
