  • Daniel Seth Williams

    I endorse this lawyer. I have worked as opposing counsel with Attorney Tavares. We were able to work amicably with each other in a matter of high conflict. Together we got our clients to reach an amicable settlement, while saving the parties the cost of protracted litigation. He is well versed in California Family Law and Military Matters. He is my go to guy with San Diego cases involving military members.

    Carlos Tavares is an intelligent, aggressive, and dedicated family law attorney. Extremely confident and decisive, Carlos possesses a prodigious ability to cut through the legal morass and to accomplish the mission; he never loses sight of "the big picture." Additionally, Carlos gives back to the community by selflessly volunteering his time to provide help to San Diego's servicemembers. If I were going through a divorce or a child custody battle, Carlos would be my first phone call. Bottom line: Carlos gets positive results for his clients!
