About me


Our practice is based in a profound respect for our clients. The dissolution of a marriage is an emotionally charged and traumatic time. It is during this turmoil that clients are expected to make the most difficult decisions about their finances, their future, and the future of their children. We have a commitment to assuring that each client is treated with compassion, and that each client is fully advised of their rights, their options, and the impact that their choices will have for their future.


We are committed to honesty, integrity, and fairness. We will work zealously to further these values and to protect you, your children, and your emerging family.


Ms. Farley's work focuses on dissolutions, child support, child custody, spousal support, post-judgment support and comprehensive property division. She also handles pre-nuptial and marital agreements. For a respected family law attorney in Marin or Sonoma County, California, contact Erin Farley today.
