Orange County divorce attorney Gerald A. Maggio is an experienced family law and divorce attorney dedicated to providing a personalized approach to each client's legal representation based on their needs.
Mr. Maggio is experienced in all aspects of family law and divorce matters, including child custody and support, spousal support, marital asset division, and stepparent adoptions. Mr. Maggio has a reputation of fighting for client rights with compassion, experience, and professionalism with the goal of navigating his clients through the complicated legal process as quickly as possible so his clients can move on with their lives.
Mr. Maggio is also a trained divorce mediator who has amicably resolved many cases out of court because the court system is not necessarily always the best option to resolving cases. He believes in the mediation process to help families resolve their conflicts peacefully in the hopes of preserving family assets, integrity and respect, in the real world, with the understanding that court should always be the forum of very last resort.
Mr. Maggio understands that divorce is one of the most stressful and agonizing events that someone can ever experience in life, and he works with clients to help them get through their divorce or family law matter as quickly and painlessly as possible.

I have been practicing law for 23 years. If I needed a family law attorney, I would hire Mr. Maggio. I worked as co-counsel with Mr. Maggio on a complex dissolution matter involving spousal support, child support, custody and enormous forensic accounting issues covering 3 separate businesses. The case, unfortunately, spanned a 3 year period. The trial was extensive (long cause covering a 12 month period) and hotly contested. Mr. Maggio was at all times knowledgeable, responsive, understanding and reasonable. I observed his work over a lengthy period of time and found him to be ethical, highly competent and experienced in this emotionally charged area of law practice. He has my full endorsement. If I can provide any additional information about Mr. Maggio's work, I would be happy to do so. Gregory G. Brown, Brown & Charbonneau, LLP

I endorse this lawyer. Gerry Maggio represented the opposing party in two of my recent family law matters. In both instances, he did so knowledgeably, vigorously and ethically - a standard always demanded, but often not met. In the first case, which was litigated, Gerry was prepared and well-spoken, polite but unrelenting in cross-examination. In the second matter, in which a negotiated resolution was reached, he was firm, but reasonable in advocating his client's position. I look forward seeing him across the counsel or conference table again.
