About me


  • My practice focuses exclusively on Family Law which is a sub-speciality concentrating on assisting clients with all aspects of the divorce or separation process including spousal/child support, child custody, visitation, property issues, pre/post nupital agreements as well as guardianships, domestic partnerships, restraining orders and appeals.

  • These areas of the law involve an unusual combination of legal expertise, business and psychology, as they all involve both legal and personal relationships of a complex and sensitive nature. No two cases are alike. For this reason, I recognize the importance of various modalities for reaching resolution which include offering traditional divorce litigation, Collaborative Divorce, mediation and filing appeals when necessary.

  • My office is located in Santa Rosa {Sonoma County}; but I also practice in neighboring Napa and Marin County, including Sonoma, Healdsburg, Windsor, Rohnert Park and Petaluma.

  • If you are searching for an experienced law office for your pending divorce or legal separation, please feel free to contact me by telephone, email or visit my website: www.majorlaw.com.  I look forward to assisting you in reaching the best possible outcome; all inquiries are confidential.
