Stephen Peter Anderson

About me

I have been a trial attorney for over 35 years. I handle family law, criminal and personal injury cases. Family law, which includes divorce, custody, support, paternity, guardianship, and restraining order issues, finds me in court most weekdays, in both Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties. My personal injury case experience includes settlement or trial of over 35 million dollars for thousands of clients. I also handle most types of criminal cases. 


My experience in Los Angeles for 10 years as a trial attorney, as a partner in a successful personal injury firm, and now having successfully represented thousands of clients locally, give me the confidence to give you the legal advice you deserve, at a fair and reasonable rate.


Advertising just involves money. Hire an attorney based upon their knowledge, experience and reputation. Please call for an appointment.
