When you hire me to represent you, we form a team and need to be on the same page in terms of philosophy and goals. I believe that if the attorney and client are not in sync, the chance of success is less than optimal. Most attorneys do not believe this. They do not want to hear your “story” and consider themselves to be more of a hired mouthpiece for their client. That’s ridiculous. This is family law - it’s personal, and I take a personal approach to each of my cases.
I am here to provide plain English answers to your legal questions and to guide you through what is understandably one of the hardest things you’ll ever have to go through. I like what I do and I am good at it.
I provide a FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION. Talking to me costs you nothing!
My office is based in Huntington Beach, California. I practice in all Orange County courts, as well as in Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino counties.
Divorce or legal separation can be an emotionally and often financially devastating event. When there are children involved, issues can rock you to your core. Do not become paralyzed by fear or make decisions without talking to an attorney first! You must take control of the situation and protect your rights!
When you deal with my office, you will deal with me directly. My goal is to educate, negotiate, mediate or litigate in your best interests. I keep the big picture in mind, adhering to a game plan that we discuss and plan together. In this economy, keeping an eye on the bottom line will ensure that you get results without getting hit with attorney fees beyond what you anticipated. I am mediation minded and state certified as a mediator; however, some cases simply have to go to court. If that is the case, I am ready and I am a strong advocate for my client’s interests.
My practice is almost exclusively family law. Family law includes divorce litigation, mediation and uncontested divorces, paternity actions, child custody, visitation and support, spousal support, division of marital property and assignment of debt, as well as prenuptial and post nuptial agreements.
Call or email today to make an appointment to come in and sit down with me to discuss what you’re going through.
