  • Meredith Gilbert Lewis

    I have known Ms. Opri for several years, and I consider her to be one of the absolute best attorneys in Southern California. She has handled numerous complex cases, and is a fierce advocate for her clients. I do not hesitate to fully endorse her as a great attorney.

  • Colleen Anne Warren

    Debra is a strong and smart attorney, who ensures she is fighting for her client's rights, without losing sight of the overall needs of a former family in divorce and custody cases. I trust that the clients I refer to her will be very well taken care of by her and her staff.
