I am dedicated to providing exceptional representation founded on a high level of integrity, professionalism and ability to communicate with clients . I have earned a solid reputation in the courts, among his peers in the legal community, and more importantly, among clients of the firm for my command of the law, exceptional personal service and tenacious advocacy.

Family law matters frequently involve complex legal issues that require an expansive understanding of many areas of the law. My 30-plus years of legal experience enables me to analyze family law matters with respect to the full body of legal issues that impact family law disputes. Real estate, contract law, tax issues and business concepts in complex property division matters are among the many areas of law that can impact family law disputes.

No two family law issues are the same. To obtain the most favorable outcome possible, a thorough investigation is critical to build a compelling case. I take the time to get to know each client's unique circumstances, concerns and goals. From day one, I focus on the ultimate goal, tailored to the individual needs of each client. Thorough preparation from the start is vital to developing a position of strength to achieve positive results in negotiations or trial.

I am proud to serve as the president of the Southern California Family Law American Inn of Court. American Inns of Court serve to foster excellence in the legal profession. Members include judges, lawyers, law professors and students. Participants have access to vital seminars, meetings and presentations to exchange ideas, experiences and ongoing education to promote integrity, ethics and knowledge of the law to promote high standards of justice in the legal profession.

Richard Trugman is the best lawyer! Wish I had hired him as my attorny at the beginning of my case. He would have saved me a lot of trouble and money. Family Law is so confusing, with so many unexpected pitfalls, delays and expenses. Richard knows the law and does not waste time running up the bill and churning the case. You wait your turn for his time because he is very busy but, .....when the time comes, for him to represent you, in negotiations with the other side or in Court, he is brilliant. In Court, he says and does the right things, to move the case forward in a positive way. He got fantastic results for me. I always left the Court feeling as if I had someone in my corner, protecting my interests. With the other side, he is strong and respectful but doesn't put up with any shenanigans that waste time and drive up costs. I have found him to honest in every way and I appreciate all he has done to help me. Again, I wish I had him as my attorney from the very beginning of the divorce.
