Skilled Orange County Family Law Attorney Ready to Help You
I have practiced family law since June 1997. My practice now is exclusively limited to Orange County, and Los Angeles County for Long Beach or Norwalk Courts only. Over the past 20 years, I have helped hundreds of clients reach successful conclusions to their family law matter. I now limit my practice to the following areas of family law: divorce, establishing paternity, child custody and child visitation issues, including drafting parenting plans, and calculating child support. I help to establish or limit spousal support, will accept selective domestic violence restraining orders, will review pre-nuptial agreements, and can help you modify orders when changed circumstances warrant changes to orders post-judgment.
What sets me apart from the big firms? I take the time necessary to clearly explain the status of your case to you as the matter progresses. I typically return phone calls and emails within the same 24 hours. I charge competitive rates with the big firms because I have practiced for over 20 years, but I am fair and do not see your life problems as my paycheck. I try to solve your problems and settle your case, because that is usually best for you and your family. However, when we have no choice but to litigate, I fight the good fight, and do my best to zealously advocate on your behalf.
I am a Southern California native, and grew up in Orange County, California. I am happily married and have two school age children. I have been a solo-practitioner throughout my entire law career, except for 2012-2013, when I had a short experience with a large family law boutique firm in Long Beach. For a variety of reasons, I returned to solo-practice in 2013, as I prefer the flexibility and challenge of practicing law as a solo practitioner. Feel free to contact me today for a low-cost one-hour office consultation.
