About Me

Tammi has been representing her clients in their family law disputes for nearly twenty years, and has effectively represented hundreds of men and women in a vast variety of matters from the most amicable mediated divorces to the highly contentious and most serious of circumstances including termination of of parental rights. Tammi's passion and greatest strength is in negotiations, mediation and settlement. Tammi is often able to diffuse problems between parties and settle cases where other attorneys have been unsuccessful while still preserving/protecting her client's rights/interests. While she firmly believes that negotiated settlement is almost always the best way to bring lasting resolution to any matter, when litigation becomes necessary to obtain a fair result for her clients, Tammi is prepared to vigorously litigate the matter through trial.

  • Katherine Laurie Schwinghammer

    I have seen Tammi Faulks in action in court on many occasions and I give her the strongest, highest endorsement. She is very knowledgeable and from what I have seen, she is an extremely effective advocate. If you are going through family law troubles and think you might need an attorney, I would recommend that you hire Ms. Faulks right away -- before the other party does.

    Tammi is one of those rare people who really goes to bat for her clients. She represents everyone zealously, both in and out of the courtroom. Tammi is my recommendation for a family law attorney on the central coast!
