Solid attorney
I highly recommend Mr. Stitch to anyone needing a family law attorney in the greater Los Angeles area. He is an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer and will strive to obtain whatever results you need in your situation. I wish I would have known about Mr. Stitch when I went through my first family law case. Don’t try it alone – get a guy that knows what he is doing in your corner.

They brought peace back to my life!
I can't say enough good things about Ronald and his team. Stephanie was my attorney, and she is wonderful. She guided me through the most difficult time in my life: a very painful divorce. The divorce wasn't easy as there were a lot of factors involved as well as a timeline to get things done. I am so very grateful for everyone in the office. All were professional and kind. When you go through a divorce, you need a kind soul to help you through and that's what they did. I will always be forever grateful for their service to me and my children.

Great Attorney
My experience with Ron and his team has been an extraordinary experience. I hired Ron to represent me with a custody matter and he was amazing; Ron and everyone in his office supported me through this legal matter both professionally and personally. I don't know if I would have gotten through it without all of their support. In addition to this my current wife and I are currently in a divorce proceeding and Ron is representing me in this case. There has been a few incorrect billings with payments being posted to the incorrect files, and when I have called to correct this matter it is dealt with immediately and professionally, with sincere apologies. There is no better attorney for family law representation in the Westlake Village area, or for that matter all of Southern California.
