I only handle divorce (family law) matters.
Unlike the majority of the competition, I am certified as a Family Law Specialist by the State Bar of California, Board of Legal Specialization. In fact, I have received the AV Preeminent peer review rating from Martindale-Hubbell.
Most people who work with me understand that I am a good listener; that I have a good speaking voice; and I am always prepared. I am very good about returning phone calls too!
I am married with two children.
Talk to me before you hire anyone else -- it can be over the phone or in person.
Retainer (always), Free consultation (30 minutes)
