A Family Law Firm Serving Contra Costa and Alameda Counties
I am a passionate family law attorney who specializes in helping individuals navigate some of the most difficult and painful experiences of their lives. I handle all issues related to divorce, legal separation, and parentage actions, including matters related to child custody, child support, spousal support, and complex property division. I also help clients wanting assistance with pre-marital and post-marital agreements. Additionally, I serves as a consulting attorney for clients in mediation and those seeking a second opinion.
I am a fierce advocate for my clients, and will stand up for their best interests in court and in negotiations with the other side. However, I believe that the best and most cost-efficient outcome is when a negotiated settlement can be reached outside of court. Therefore, I work hard to avoid litigation unless it is necessary. I tell my clients what they need to hear, and not necessarily what they want to hear, in order to help them achieve the best results for their case.
I graduated from the University of San Francisco (USF) School of Law and was admitted to the State Bar of California in 2012. During law school, I was the president of the Equal Justice Society and had internships at the San Francisco District Attorney's Office, the USF Child Advocacy Clinic, Legal Aid of Marin, and Metoyer Law Offices. I was also the recipient of the 2009 USF Women Lawyer’s Committee Scholarship for Transitional Students and the 2011 Wiley W. Manuel Award.
Prior to founding Grey & Associates Family Law, I practiced for over 7 years at the highly respected firm, Blum, Gibbs, Davies & Owens. I am a member of the Alameda County Bar and the Contra Costa County Bar Associations, and am a Volunteer Mediator for the Contra Costa County Family Court Volunteer Mediator Settlement Program.
I taught second and third grade for 5 years prior to attending law school. I received both my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Masters in Education from UCLA.
I am fluent in French and have traveled to more than 25 countries around the world. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading books, and listening to music and podcasts.
