Matthew J Mesnik

About Me

I practice exclusively in the Family Law area regularly handling clients issues such as divorce, legal separation, annulment, child custody, child visitation, child support, spousal support, property division, reimbursement for attorneys fees, dissolution of domestic partnership, step parent adoption, termination of parental rights, set aside judgments, and others.  I serve the entire San Diego County area including Downtown San Diego, Mission Valley, Chula Vista, El Cajon, La Mesa, Bay Park, Pacific Beach, Ocean Beach, Point Loma, Clairmont, Tierrasanta, Rancho Penasquitos, Rancho Bernardo, La Jolla, UTC, Carlsbad, Solana Beach, Oceanside, Vista, Fallbrook, Escondido, San Marcos, San Carlos, Lakeside, Santee, National City, Poway, Scripps Ranch, Del Mar, Rancho Sante Fe, Cardiff, and Valley Center.


I focus on an efficient representation that is geared towards accomplishing my client's goals.  I am always available for my clients.  My clients know from the start that I am one of the good ones who will do all I can to assure their case is handled fairly, competently, and diligently while keeping in mind what is best for the entire family.  While I don't tout myself as an aggressive attorney I will passionately represent my clients as aggressively as is needed in any given situation.

    Matt and I had a case against each other that was very contentious. As the case progressed, it was clear that Matt was knowledgeable and reasonable to work with. We were able to resolve the case without the need of a lengthy and costly trial for our clients. I hope I get more cases against Matt in the future.
