I am Joanne Ratinoff, an experienced family law attorney and former partner at a major Century City boutique family law firm. (The firm is now defunct because the founding partners retired.) I went into private practice in October, 2014. My clients have the advantage of my "big firm" experience and expertise combined with my very personal attention to their cases. I have practiced family law exclusively since 1989. I offer divorce consultations, mediation, litigation, and collaborative divorce services. I also prepare prenuptial, post-nuptial agreements and transmuation agreements. I am "AV" rated by Martindale Hubbell, the authoritative resource for information on the worldwide legal profession. I have been rated as a "Southern California Super Lawyer" (Family Law) for the years 2009 to date by Los Angeles magazine. I was also selected for inclusion as one of the "Ten Most Dependable" Family Law attorneys for 2008 by Forbes magazine.
I am Committed to Providing Quality Legal Services
I practice family law exclusively focusing on divorce, child custody, spousal support (alimony), child support, and other issues that commonly occur during divorce. My extensive experience within this specialized area of law has given me in-depth knowledge of the California laws and court procedures applicable to divorce cases.
I have the experience, knowledge and skills necessary to create a personalized strategy to help you with your family law mediation or through your divorce or legal separation litigation that is based on your needs, goals and concerns. I am a member of the Beverly Hills Bar Assn Mediation Panel.
