About me

We care about our clients.  We educate our clients about their rights.  We educate our clients about the steps in the legal process that affect them.  We show our clients how we can help them obtain results that benefit them.  We help our clients clearly present their side of the issues to the other party and the Judge.  We frequently offer our clients reasonable fixed fees so our clients know how much our legal services will cost, even with some of the divorces.

We work with people that only need limited assistance with their legal issues and we work with clients that want us to handle their entire case and represent them before the Judge.  We guide our clients through the difficult process of resolving legal conflicts through the courts.  Sometimes we only prepare legal documents for our clients, give them legal advice, and help them prepare to represent themselves in court.  Other times, we go to court with the client and help them negotiate a written agreement at court or represent them before the Judge and explain why the Judge should make a decision that benefits our client.

We handle many amicable divorces and help parents resolve their child custody, parenting time, and support issues without needing to go to a Judge for a decision. We believe that many parents are happier with the decisions we help them make together instead of asking the Judge to make a decision.  However, if they cannot reach an agreement, we will work with our clients to help them effectively present their issues and concerns to the Judge.  We have many satisfied clients.  

We help people dealing with financial problems.  We educate them about different options for handling credit card debt and other debt.  

We also help people that want us to help them prepare wills, living trusts and power of attorney forms so their loved ones obtain the money and other assets they want them to have.

Our staff is fluent in Spanish.  We work with clients to help them resolve their legal issues in an amicable way when possible.

I understand financial issues.  I have a MBA in Finance.  I'm able to help many families with their financial issues regarding high levels of debt, divorce, child support, and estate planning. 

I'm a Certified Specialist in Family Law, certified by The State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization.  In order to obtain this certification, I passed a state wide family law exam, completed many hours of continuing education in family law, met the high level of experience requirements and received favorable evaluations from other attorneys.  Only a small percentage of attorneys that practice family law are certified family law specialists. 

When I'm not working with clients, I'm involved with bar association and community activities.  I also enjoy movies, the theatre, reading and sightseeing.
