    16 years

I’ve been helping people solve problems and improve their lives since 2006. As a solo practitioner, I offer Family Law and Estate Planning services.

In other words, I specialize in fresh starts and new beginnings.

 

Backed by years of experience and expertise, I can help you achieve:

 

Transition

Divorce—whether quick and peaceful or protracted and bruising—is painful enough without having to go through it alone. I can be your strongest advocate in child custody and support, spousal support, and asset division.

 

Peace of Mind

Make sure the people you love and the assets you’ve worked so hard to attain are protected.  I can set up wills, trusts, Powers of Attorney, Advance Healthcare Directives, and other estate planning safeguards.

 

Independence

Feel overwhelmed by financial burdens? I can help you reclaim your life by exploring various options. 

 

My office also offers:

 

·         Notary Public services

·         Service in Russian and Ukrainian

·         House calls for the elderly and home-bound

 

My History:

 

I went to law school at Temple University—with an emphasis in Trial Practice—and graduated in 2005. While there I won numerous academic accolades: Dean’s List, Phi Beta Kappa, and Trial Advocacy awards. Before that, I received my B.A. in 1999 at Odessa State University, in Foreign Languages and Linguistics (I speak Russian, Ukrainian, French, Dutch, Italian, and Latin).  I later decided to obtain a second B.A., this time in Psychology. Both degrees have helped me communicate and connect with clients, making me a more effective advocate.

I also attended Golden Gate Law School to become well-versed in the nuances of California Law.

When I’m not helping clients, I love spending time with my family and catching up on my long reading list. I’m also a fan of physical fitness, particularly jogging and that oh-so-popular Zumba.

Best prenuptial agreement lawyer!
Extremely happy with Irene and her team's services! She helped me with a complicated prenuptial agreement. All the work was done in a fast and efficient manner. My calls and emails were answered by Irene and her staff quickly. One cool thing that I have enjoyed is that Law Offices of Irene S. Gold is using a client management portal - where I could log in any time at my convenience to check on the case progress, message Irene and her staff - and also to view and pay invoices. I was so worried this prenup would cost me a lot - because I do not have any experience working with lawyers - but, surprisingly, my final bill was very reasonable. I am now happily married and if I had to do it all over again - I would come back to Ms. Gold without any hesitation!

Nice Divorce Lawyer
I am so grateful to have Irene Gold as my lawyer in a divorce matter. She is very professional, and easy to talk to. Irene always responds to my calls. Irene’s fees are very reasonable. Ms. Gold always strives to have parties reach an agreement, but she is a strong advocate for her client when she needs to be. I had a situation where my husband and I could not reach an agreement in regard to our spousal support. We had a 4-way meeting with my husband and his lawyer. It went really well. The amount of support is fair and works for me. I have recommended Ms. Gold to my friends, and they are happy with her services too. both to a friend and to a coworker who are also in need of a lawyer. I am going to continue to refer business to her.

I hired Irene to prepare a very complex estate plan that had to be finished in a short amount of time. Irene was friendly, efficient, and thorough, and she was always available to answer my questions. She made a difficult process run smoothly and eased my worries with her professionalism and warm personality.

Very Happy
Very happy and very satisfied after hiring Irene to handle our estate planning. It was a little bit complicated because my wife and I owned two different properties and other complications, but Irene knew what she was doing and made the process simple for us to understand. Even more importantly, her fees were reasonable when compared to others we consulted.

Excellent Lawyer!!!
I have had the most positive experience working with Irina. She assisted my wife and I in having our estate plan drafted - we had 3 meetings - during which Irina took her time to sit down with us to explain how the process was going to work, to review our goals, and to discuss her fees, which are very reasonable, by the way (we have called around before deciding to hire Irina.) The signing meeting was easy and pleasant. Irina continued to chat with us, while notarizing our documents. Now our family is protected. Thank you, Irina!

Irina helped us in very difficult times for fresh start.
Thank you Irina for your help and understanding during difficult times for our family. We needed professional, legal help with child support issues. Irina was very helpful, understanding, professional and knowledgeble in this area. She helped me resolve my family law case fairly quickly and with output that really exceeded all my expetactations. Irina is great negotiator. She really was able to find solution that worked for both parties and that we both felt good about. Divorce is a painful as it is. Irina was always patient, ready to listen and knew exactly what steps we need to make to put it behind us, ready for fresh start. Thank you very much, it was a pleasure working with you.

Excellent Bankruptcy Attorney
During our difficult financial times, we pretty much run out of all the possible options. Last option was bankruptcy and it was very difficult to decide on that and to understand what it is all about. It only took 30min with our consultation with Irina, that we really understood what all those chapters are about and understood our options. Before that chapter 7 or 13 were just numbers. Finally it was more clear what we can keep in bankruptcy solution and what we can't. Irina was very patient and made sure we have all of our questions answered before we went to next step. She also gave us materials to read at home. Once we decided to go for it. Ms. Puhachevsky sent us an online form, that was easy to fill out... from their she took care of everything. At court or any meetings we were explained every step. Once again Thank you very Much!!!! Irina is very professional, experienced and understanding attorney.

Very good Business and Immigration Lawyer
We have used Irina's services to do a number of tasks. She helped us with contract drafting and negotiations with one of our major clients, H1b visa for our contractor and she filed and registered our main trademark. One day I just got a letter with our trademark. She did all the work and it was also affordable. Thank you very much for your professionalism and work ethics. We highly recommend her office services.
