About the Firm
A team with 20+ years of Combined Trial and Litigation Experience. In addition to being fierce advocates in disputed divorce and family law matters, Roxas Law provides conflict resolution services as an alternative to costly court battles. Our philosophy is to work with clients to resolve their disputes in the most organized, timely, cost efficient and effective manner possible. Our Attorney Mediator is committed to helping families facilitate out-of-court agreements mediating issues involving divorce, paternity, child custody and visitation, parenting plan, child support, spousal support, and asset division. We work with low or high conflict clients to resolve their disputes privately and economically. Rather than “airing your dirty laundry” in court, all discussions and communications in mediation are privileged and confidential.

About the Partner
Sandy K. Roxas, Esq. is admitted to practice law in California and the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. Sandy graduated from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, Cum Laude. She received her law degree from Chapman University School of Law, where she was the Managing Editor of the Chapman Law Journal and the Co-Founding President of the Asian Pacific American Law Student Organization. Sandy was also a scholarship recipient of the Orange County Asian American Bar Association as well as a bar stipend recipient of the Orange County Women Lawyers Association. During law school, Sandy served as a Judicial law clerk for the Honorable Candice Beason of the Los Angeles Superior Court, a law clerk for the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office, and worked as a paralegal in a litigation firm.

Since 2004, Sandy has zealously litigated family law matters, including but not limited to, divorce, legal separation, nullity of marriage, paternity, child custody, child support, spousal support, property division, domestic violence restraining orders, and civil harassment restraining orders. She has also successfully mediated family law cases for low and high conflict clients, defended clients in criminal matters, and represented victims of hate crimes.

Community Service
Sandy remains committed to the community in several ways. In her free time, she mentors college graduates and law students. She has awarded annual financial scholarships to graduating seniors from Carson High School since 2009. She has spoken at numerous Career Nights – at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. She is currently the Chairperson of the Philippine American Bar Association’s non-profit/community outreach arm, The PABA Foundation. She is also a Lifetime Member of the Philippine American Bar Association. Additionally, she is a Mock Trial coach at one of the schools in the Palos Verdes Peninsula United School District. Since 2013, Sandy has sponsored outreach programs such as “Slippers for Kids” and “Apples for Kids,” providing much needed slippers and apples for impoverished children in the Philippines – most whom have never in their lives owned a pair of slippers or tasted an apple. Sandy continues to sponsor international outreach programs by providing water pumps, donating food and school supplies to impoverished families and their children in the Philippines.

Media
Sandy has been featured on the Dr. Phil Show, in KTLA 5 News, Fox News, the Daily Breeze, Asian Journal, Tayo News, Weekend Balita, The May Lee Show, Halo Halo with Kat Iniba, and for her pro-bono work against racism and xenophobia. In 2020, Sandy issued a Call For Action to the Mayor of the City of Torrance, the Torrance City Attorney, and Chief of the Torrance Police Department to arrest and prosecute Lena Hernandez for her criminal acts of assault, battery, criminal threats, and child endangerment fueled against Asian-American victims.

Your Official Lawyers During COVID
What can I say, but Roxas Law is AMAZING! At first, the thought of going to court seemed so daunting. I had very little time with my daughter as the original court order was placed when my daughter was 3 months old. My ex moved to a different city, with no notice, and wanted to change the whole visitation pickup and hours. Therefore, I knew I had to go to court to have a new visitation schedule in place. I visited several law firms and once I went and sat down with Sandy, I knew Roxas Law was the one. She laid out all of the possibilities starting with a reasonable less costly, mentally and monetarily, approach of simply talking to one another with legal assistance, to mediation, to going to court. I knew she that could handle my extremely difficult ex and handle my particular situation with ease and professionalism. I had not been granted access to my daughter since December 27, 2019. I started the court process in Mid January and the firm was so helpful and explained the whole process thoroughly. During this time, my ex avoided all of the phone calls from Troy and Sandy and made it extremely difficult to even serve her. Throughout this time, their professionalism never wavered and they kept me calm, as it was stressful to think that I would never get to see my daughter as my ex did everything in her power to avoid contact. After several attempts of trying to contact her, she was finally served and we had a court date set for March 20, 2020. However, everything came to a screeching halt on March 19, 2020 when Los Angeles was officially shut down due to COVID. Another disappointment, more stress, and more waiting without seeing my daughter and knowing if she was ok or not. But, leave it to Sandy and Troy to come to the rescue! They had to inform my ex that the court date would be rescheduled due to COVID and it was unknown as to when that date would be. They reached out to my ex and asked her if the old visitation schedule could resume as it was not known when we would go to court. She refused citing COVID concerns. However, since we had a TON of evidence against her and how she interfered with my parenting time, refused to give me access to see my daughter, and many other things, her refusal would be one more piece of evidence against her. Once she was told, she quickly changed her mind and allowed my previous visitation schedule with my daughter. We had another court date schedule for May and it was also pushed back. Throughout this time, Troy always reached out to ensure that everything was going as smooth as possible until we could go to court. If I had any issues with my ex, he was quick to handle it. We then had a court date on July 13, 2020. The big day finally arrived! Of course, I was terrified. Troy was very professional and eased my nerves and always explained what was coming up and let me know the possible outcomes. The judge granted me everything I wanted and more with the exception of full legal custody. It was a huge victory!!! I could not have done it without their help! Bottom line, you get what you pay for. The rates are beyond reasonable for the help, experience, and professionalism you get. The entire experience can seem daunting and scary and just beyond hope. But, I can tell you that it is not! Do not hesitate to contact Roxas Law for anything you need as you will not regret it. You will have a great team behind you to get you through the ups and downs of child custody issues. A big thank you to Sandy and Troy and everyone else at the office!!!! -Sincerely E. Murcia A grateful father

Knowledgeable Outstanding Family Law Negotiator
I have had the opportunity to work with Sandy and her team on a number of marital agreements over the years. Sandy truly knows her stuff. She is regularly seen attending continuing educations classes on Family Law, and she prides herself on staying current with the changes in Family Law. In addition to knowing the law, Sandy is strong advocate and negotiator for her clients. Her one-two punch of knowing the law and having exceptional negotiation skills makes Sandy a top choice for Family Law in California.

Sandy THANK YOU!!!!!!
Sandy and her team are the best hands down! My Divorce from beginning to end was handled absolutely a pleasant experience because of Sandy and her staff. I hear about so many nightmare divorces and how horrible Attorneys can be during the proceedings that's not the case here Sandy treats you the utmost respect and make a very difficult moment in life much easier. I'll say if you and your spouse can communicate without wanting to strangle each other run don't walk to Sandy. Go get your divorce mediated and save a whole lot of money and suffering by not ending up fighting each other till everything is gone.

TRO/Dissolution
Roxas Law did such an Excellent Job with my TRO/Dissolution Matter. Sandy and her Team kept me informed and laid out my options as my case developed. Now that my case is closed and I couldn’t be happier with Roxas Law’s work to get everything I needed resolved done. I also recommended Roxas Law to a few friends, and I appreciate how honest Sandy was to them. She was able to help one friend through his Dissolution, and honest enough to the other who lived in Ventura. She recommended that my friend from Ventura would be better off getting someone who’s familiar with the Courts in Ventura and who is closer to his area, to save on expenses and be of better service to him. I’d recommend at least getting a Consultation, if Roxas Law can help, they’re the Team you want to be on your side.

Commendation of Sandy Roxas
My daughter owns a popular Beach Cafe, therefore experiences many customers involved in different situations and walks of life. When I realized it was imperative that I initiate a Living Trust, I asked my daughter if she happened to know of a wonderful attorney. Not a second went by before she said "Sandy Roxas". She had heard of Roxas Law from many patrons and the praise was amazing. People raved, therefore I took her advice and started the process with Sandy. She is so knowledgeable and caring of her clients. If a question came up, I always felt comfortable asking her and she always had the answer. If you are in need of legal help, I highly recommend Sandy Roxas. You will never be sorry. The bonus was that I enjoyed her staff also and that's often hard to find.

Great lawyer
I regret that I didn't get Sandy as my lawyer when I went into my recent case. She is very organized, professional, knowledgeable and will fight what her client wants. She explained everything clearly. Kept me up to date with my case and even when she needs to take a break for some time. She responds promptly to calls and messages. I had a very bad experience with my former lawyer when it comes to that but Sandy didn't disappoint me at all. I highly recommend her to anyone who will need her services. Thank you Sandy and hope to work with you again.

Roxas Law
Sandy at Roxas law was great. Went through a long divorce that I would say was one if the hardest things I've done. Sandy is very grounded, to the point, reassuring, and communicates effectively. I like the no BS answers and the fact that she is continually looking for the best solution, both long and short term. It was great knowing I had someone to count on through the process as it is hard and can be quite complex. Thanks Sandy!

Extremely Satisfied
I am very grateful to Sandy and her professional staff. My original divorce attorney inexplicably lost interest in my case. My divorce was complete, but the Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDROs) were not signed by my ex-spouse. Both she and her attorney were giving me a very hard time. Sandy opened a line of communication with opposing counsel on a regular basis and got the QDROs signed. I truly appreciated her help on this issue. In addition, Sandy is honest. She put me at ease and did not try to gouge me financially. I am a retired CA law enforcement officer with 35 years of experience. I've been around a lot of lawyers and criminal courtrooms. Nothing prepared me for my divorce. Civil court is a netherworld. In retrospect, I wish Sandy was in my corner at the commencement of my divorce. For those of you going through the darkness of divorce, Sandy is a ray of light. Contact her. It will be one of the best decisions you will make.

The BEST lawyer ever!
Mrs. Roxas is an amazing attorney. I recently had my first court case and I was definitely nervous. She's a straight shooter and will tell you the possible outcome of your case. There's no way that I would have the same results without her. Thank you.

Expungement
HAPPY NEW YEARS!! Could not have started my year on a better note!! Ms. Roxas is a true professional. Right of the bat I received positive vibes entering her offices. I went to Roxas Law to get my record Expunged after serving my 3 year probation. 2 months later I received an email on New Years Eve, stating that my record had been cleaned. I am not a bad person, I made one mistake and I paid the price. I am very thankful for Sandy Roxas and her team for helping me get back on track with my life. God forbid I find myself in any other legal issues, but if I do, I know where to go. Highly recommend Roxas Law.
