About me

I am Joanne Ratinoff, an experienced family law attorney and partner at the law firm of Freid and Goldsman, APLC, located in Century City, California. I have been in practice for more than 30 years, and have practiced family law exclusively for the past 23 years. I am "AV" rated by Martindale Hubbell, the authoritative resource for information on the worldwide legal profession. I am rated as a "Southern California Super Lawyer" (Family Law) for the years 2009 through 2014 by Los Angeles magazine.  I was also selected for inclusion as one of the "Ten Most Dependable" Family Law attorneys for 2008 by Forbes magazine.


I am Committed to Providing Quality Legal Services

I practice family law exclusively focusing on divorce, child custody, spousal support (alimony), child support, and other issues that commonly occur during divorce. My extensive experience within this specialized area of law has given me in-depth knowledge of the California laws and court procedures applicable to divorce cases.


I have the experience, knowledge and skills necessary to create a personalized strategy to help you with your family law mediation or through your divorce or legal separation litigation that is based on your needs, goals and concerns.
