Tran & Wise is a law firm specializing in family law cases in Santa Clara County. Together, Ann Wise and Rebecca Tran have over 34 years of combined practice as attorneys. We handle divorce, legal separation, custody and visitation, spousal support, child support and complex property division cases. We develop a strategy for each case and are available for our clients. We keep our clients fully informed of the process, options and possible outcomes. Our experience with the family law process allows us to handle cases efficiently and decisively, keeping costs to a minimum. The firm uses the latest technology and can handle even the most document-intensive cases effectively, reducing the cost of the case. The firm represents clients in both contested divorce and mediated divorce. A divorce is contested when the issues are tried in court. The spouses in a mediated divorce jointly hire Ann or Rebecca as the sole lawyer to assist them in understanding the law, filing all necessary papers, negotiating and drafting an agreement without bringing issues to the court. This is generally the most cost-effective way to obtain a divorce. We approach cases with the goal of keeping clients out of court. However, if a dispute cannot be resolved, we provide strong and effective representation in court. At Tran & Wise, the entire team is devoted to each client's family law case. When not at work, I enjoy reading, running, scuba diving, and horseback riding. I also enjoy travel, and have traveled extensively throughout the United States and abroad. I am a member of the Santa Clara County Bar Association, where I am a member of the family law section, and the State Bar of California. I am admitted to practice in all California Courts, including the Federal District Court and U.S. Court of Appeals. less
