I was admitted to the State Bar of California in 1989. In 2012, the State Bar of California, Board of Legal Specialization designated me as a California Certified Family Law Specialist in Family Law.
I am currently a partner at the Santa Monica law firm of Fernandez & Karney where our practice is limited to family law with an emphasis in complex property /asset division and support cases.
In 1987, I earned my Juris Doctoratedegree from U.C.L.A. In 1984, I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in English from the University of California at Santa Barbara.
I have served as a Judge Pro Tem and Pro Bono Family Law Mediator for the Los Angeles County Superior Court, and have also had the opportunity to guest lecture on “Discovery in Family Law” at California State University, Northridge.
As a Southern California native of Malibu, CA, I have been a part of the West Side community over forty years. Finally I am also active in the legal community and am a member of many organizations, including the Association of Certified Family Law Specialists, the Westside Professional Group, the Santa Monica Bar Association, and the Family Law Sections of both the State Bar of California and the Los Angeles County Bar Association.
