About Me

I'm a certified family law specialist and have run my family law practice since 2005.  You can find reviews about me here:


After many years in public health (in epidemiology and law), I switched to family law.  I found it provided me with the ability to deeply connect with clients and help them when they found themselves in turmoil.  While it can be stressful work, the deep meaning it affords completely balances out any negative aspects.


I've been interviewed for my experience handling pet custody issues on KPIX television news and in the East Bay Express.

  • Sivan Rebecca Butler-Rotholz

    Deborah is a rare type of family law attorney. Extremely knowledgeable, patient, and with a practice ideology that I hope to emulate myself one day. If I were to hire a family law attorney it would be Debora. Beyond that she is a superior peer - someone who I will turn to first when seeking advice in the family law area. I cannot recommend Deborah's services enough.
