About Me

I am a family law attorney practicing in the East Valley since 1989.  I am dedicated to assisting my clients and helping them through this difficult time in their life.  It is my goal to take the burden and stress associated with family law matters off my clients so that they can begin the process of rebuilding their lives.  I give my all to each case and strive to acheive the best outcome.  I do not believe in game playing or needlessly increasing attorney's fees.  I strive to resolve every case without court intervention if settlement is fair and appropriate given the risks of a judge making the decisions.  However, if settlement proposals are not what I believe to be fair, I have no problem litigating matters and try to make this process as painless for my client's as possible.

  • Slade A Lawson

    Zalena is passionate about what she does. She is willing to go the extra mile for her clients. I have personally witnessed Zalena put in extra time on her client's case far, far above what any other family law attorney would do. She is smart and tenacious and gets great results. Her clients know how hard she works for them and they trust her completely.
