The art of lawyering includes, at least in part, the art of story telling. You want the Judge to "get" your side of the story so that you have a good shot at a fair result. I enjoy the story telling aspect of lawyering. Those sometimes complex legal rules are part of your story, since you want the Judge to hear all the relevant facts that make up your case. At the end of the day it is story telling.
I am a Certified Family Law Specialist, Certified by the California Board of Legal Specialization, and if you have a Family Law type story to tell I will either know what you need to tell the Judge, or I will know where to look it up. I have been practicing Family Law for over 9 years now, and while I cannot be sure I have seen everything, I have seen a lot. You can tell me your story, and I will let you know my opinion of what you should be doing to make it better.
