As anyone who has done it knows, going through a Divorce is an emotional experience. Ariel Sosna represented me for my divorce. I knew nothing about California Family Law or what my obligations and rights were. Ariel answered all of my questions promptly and clearly. While I did not always like the answers because of how they affected me, I trusted Ariel's expertise and trusted that her answers were the right ones. As I said, Divorce is an emotional experience. And, Ariel talked me off the figurative "ledge" many times when my emotions were getting the better of me. Ariel looked out for me and made sure that my interests were protected and that I did not sell myself short during the negotiation process. I am not a risk taker by nature. And, Ariel was able to explain why certain decisions I was hesitant to make were not as risky as I thought they were based on the law. Her advice was the best ever and I am happy with the outcome we achieved. I would recommend Ariel Sosna in a heartbeat to anyone considering divorce. And, if I decide to marry again, you can be sure I will contact Ariel for help with my pre-nup. She is the best!
Ariel and her team are wonderful. Ariel was able to explain the legal process to me and was available to answer my questions, which sounds as though it should be typical but I don't believe it always is the case. And she won, every time. I had the opportunity to read her motions and she is brilliant, I am not a lawyer but I appreciate her intelligence, experience, and savvy and those qualities were apparent in her writing. Her assistants are also friendly, available, fast and reliable. I had a relatively complex case that required immediate action initially and then ongoing strategy and she excelled at both. In addition to being a great lawyer, Ariel is also a mother and was sympathetic and funny yet very straightforward which was incredibly helpful. I highly recommend her.
Getting divorced is terrifying. Attorney Ariel Sosna took the burden of fear and legal worry off my shoulders. She gave me sound advice, allowing me to make the final decision, all within a manageable budget, utilizing mediation, and avoiding the expense of going to court.
She explained the pros and cons of issues, asked me questions about what I wanted out of the process, was patient, and promptly answered my emails. She was my true ally and I felt protected. She is warm, compassionate, and easy to work with. She will get down to the nitty gritty and work at whatever pace is comfortable for you. In the end, she reviewed the divorce contract to make sure there were no loop holes that would put me at a disadvantage.
She's smart, tough, tenacious and gets the job done. I would highly recommend Ariel Sosna to anyone who needs legal representation in a divorce.
