About me

As a Family Law Attorney for the past eight years, Ms. Buono has extensive experience in settling and litigating all types of Family Law matters, including dissolution of marriage, paternity, custody and visitation, child and spousal support, pre-marital agreements, domestic violence, retirement issues, as well as modification and enforcement of family law orders and judgments.


Part of her role as an attorney is to educate her clients about the impact the law will have on their specific issues. She strives to help clients understand the legal implications associated with their choices, and provide them with the information they need to make the best decisions for themselves and their families.


Ms. Buono has the knowledge and skill to guide you through this difficult time and provide you with superior representation. She prides herself on aggressively pursuing her clients’ goals and is committed to securing the best possible outcome every time. Her dedication to her profession, and to her clients, is reflected in the testimonials.


Born and raised in San Diego, California, Ms. Buono knew as a young child that she wanted to be an attorney. She graduated from the University of San Diego with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science, and received her Juris Doctorate with honors from Thomas Jefferson School of Law. After a semester of volunteering at the Domestic Violence Restraining Order Clinic, while in law school, Ms. Buono found a passion for the area of Family Law, and for advocating for those in need of a voice.


Outside of the practice of law, Ms. Buono enjoys spending time with her family and friends, reading and running Half Marathons.

  • Klinton Karpol Leblang

    Angela... What can I say to do her justice? She is an excellent attorney who deeply cares about her clients. Although I could go on and on, I'll give one recent example separating her from other family law attorneys. She recently helped a client save in the tens of thousands of dollars based on an error an previous attorney had made on their case (mistakes happen and i'm sure the other attorney didn't intentionally make the error). Angela never mentioned the attorney's name nor would she ever. She simply helped this client out. This is who Angela is and what she represents. Highly recommend.
