Settlement-Oriented, Trial Ready
I'm a certified family law specialist and have run my family law practice since 2005. You can find reviews about me here: http://www.yelp.com/biz/law-offices-of-deborah-dubroff-oakland-2
After many years in public health (in epidemiology and law), I switched to family law. I found it provided me with the ability to deeply connect with clients and help them when they found themselves in turmoil. While it can be stressful work, the deep meaning it affords completely balances out any negative aspects.
I've been interviewed for my experience handling pet custody issues on KPIX television news and in the East Bay Express.

Deborah is not only sharp and quick-witted, she is also well-respected by the judges and her fellow family law attorneys. We often refer clients to Deborah and know that they will be well taken care of. I highly endorse Deborah and her firm.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
Deborah is awesome. We worked together on several cases (all of which settled) and she is one of my go-to people when I have a question or need a second opinion. She gives you information straight-up. No sugar coating, and no fluff. I love that. She's reasonable, but tough. Perfect balance. I highly recommend.
