About Marie

Learn Marie’s areas of practice.

Marie I. Braun is an attorney with over 22 years of experience in Family Law.  She is an attorney licensed by the State Bar of California and became a Family Law Specialist certified by the State Board of California in 1993.

In 1995, after practicing general civil litigation, Ms. Braun turned the focus of her legal career to family law and in 2011 Ms. Braun became a Certified Family Law Specialist.

Her passions lead her to family law because of her strong belief in helping her clients and their families toward a better future. As a child of divorce, she later realized that her own parents handled their divorce with class and dignity; putting the needs of their children first. She encourages her clients to do the same. Although, when this approach sometimes fails, she is beyond prepared to litigate to the fullest extent.

Ms. Braun received her Juris Doctorate from Southwestern University School of Law in 1992 and her undergraduate degree from Loyola Marymount University.

When not practicing law, Ms. Braun keeps busy with her family.

Ms. Braun was my attorney in an extremely contentious child custody case. She was the best.

Excellent Attorney!
My partner and I hired Marie Braun to help him through his divorce. It had stalled after three years of separation and seemed no end was in sight. Ms. Braun was wonderful in keeping perspective in our case. This was a severe alienation case and lies about payment of support. The other party did not keep any records of support payments made and filed a ridiculous claim that no support was made. Marie meticulously went through all bank records and wage garnishments and determined the OVER payment of over $15,000! She also was able to get the court to modify a custody order to help get back to a reasonable visitation schedule. When we felt desperate that there would be no end to this, she helped encourage us. We were truly grateful for her help in getting our case on a forward track. I would recommend her to any of my friends going through a divorce.

Excellent Lawyer!!
Mrs. Braun was referred to me by a family friend and represented me in family court for a child custody dispute. I could not have asked for a better experience in terms of my encounter with her. She is friendly, knowledgeable, and professional (without being stuffy or distant). She listened to me and worked hard to ensure my child’s needs were met. More than once she appeared to drop everything to deal with what urgent matters involving my child’s safety and she did not stop working until the matters were thoroughly addressed. She consistently went above and beyond to help me. Once, during the course of this family law case, a different legal issue (beyond family court) arose and Mrs. Braun helped me by finding a colleague who specialized in that type of law to advise me. Additionally, she is so patient and fair in her billing practices. She also clearly explained every answer to every question I had, in addition to explaining what was happening with my case. She’s a real person who just gets it and she treated me with kindness and respect. In the end, I received SOLE legal and SOLE physical custody of my child and I know this could not have happened with Mrs. Braun (and God ;) by my side…. I highly recommend Marie Braun and will hire her again if I ever end up in family court again.

A true professional
I highly recommend Marie Braun's services, her expertise and demeanor are exceptional. She was extremely fair with her rates and an absolute professional in communicating and advocating fairness in my case which involved spousal support. Where she really shined was in the courtroom she made opposing council look unprepared and at some points flustered. Marie is fair and great at her profession.

Family Attorney | Jul 20
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Marie Braun was is an aggressive and knowledgable advocate. She was opposing counsel on a case and I found her to be tough, aggressive, and relentless when it came to representing her client. At the same time as being a tough advocate, she was professional, courteous, and on top of her game. Her ability to steadfastly represent her clients while maintaining a stellar representation as a professional is unmatched and a lost art in today's practice of law. Marie has a unique and "old school" professional approach to the practice of law which garners respect from fellow attorney's and Judges. She is the real deal."
