Deborah Wald has been there for me since the first moment I needed legal advice and has never left my side; she is always offering solid counsel and encouragement - above-and-beyond the requirements for her job. She is superbly adept compared to other attorneys, and has a heart of pure rainbows and sunshine to boot! I know for a fact I would have never seen my baby daughter again if it hadn't been for Deborah's attention to detail, positive attitude, and outstanding legal expertise. I have recommended her to many family, friends, and even strangers, all of whom have been supremely pleased with her guidance and results.
Deborah Wald represented me this last year in a child custody case which I won. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney and advocate. She is extremely knowledgeable about gay and lesbian family law - in fact she is the premier expert in this field of law in Northern California. She is highly professional, ethical, honest, caring, compassionate and extremely diligent and hard working. She cares about her work and her clients. Deborah is also very politically active in her community and participates in numerous professional organizations who are dedicated to protecting and advancing the rights of gays and lesbians in CA and throughout the country. Simply put, she is an absolutely stellar human being.
Deborah Wald is incredibly knowledgable, reasonable, and effective. She is a formidable and able opponent, but someone with whom one can work on a handshake. She is the lawyer's lawyer.
