Richard Bragg Golden

About me

For over 30 years, I have been helping my clients navigate the many challenges and complexities of California family law matters. 


I have the experience and expertise as a trial advocate to represent my clients in a wide range of litigated matters, including issues of property valuation and division, child and spousal support, and child custody litigation.      


Avoiding court is possible in many cases.  As alternatives to litigation, I offer my years of experience and advanced training in alternate dispute resolution proceedings, such as mediation and collaborative law.  In additon to my private mediation practice, I regularly assist local courts in presiding over day-of-court medation and settlement conferences.  I have served many clients who are working with a mediatior in the capacity of the client's outside consutling counsel.   


I also represent clients in the respectful negotiation and careful preparation of their Premarital Agreements and Marital Agreements.      


California family law matters demand an attorney's full attention and commitment, as well as an understanding of his or her client's unique circumstances.  We are here to support you in all of your family law needs with professionalism and integrity.

  • Brian Blakely Beckwith

    I endorse Richard Golden for his exemplary work representing clients in Family Law matters in San Mateo and Santa Clara County. I have known Richard for almost ten years and was his opponent in a very difficult dissolution case in Redwood City. He is a seasoned professional whose legal judgment and poise in the courtroom have won the respect of both the judges he appears before and the attorneys who are his adversaries. Richard's ethical standards are at the highest level and it is obvious that his foremost concern is the promotion and protection of his client's interests. I would recommend him for anyone needing representation in a Family Law case, no matter how difficult or contentious.
