Comprehensive Divorce Services
I have practiced California divorce law for more than twenty years and served as a lawyer since 1982. I assist clients in preparing and filing all the documents and family law forms in contested and uncontested divorce cases. I represent clients through every stage of a divorce including hearings for temporary child custody or visitation or temporary child support or spousal support.
Division of Property, Debt Allocation and Tax Consequences
Many of my clients are facing a high asset divorce, with a privately held business or a professional practice among the community property to be divided. My goal is to create a strategic plan that protects my client's interests for today and tomorrow, and minimizes tax consequences of a divorce. Other clients are dealing with significant debt that must be accurately divided.
Legal Separation as an Option
I explain and assist clients through legal separation, which can include child custody and visitation, child support and spousal support matters as well as community and separate property division.
My Dedication To Clients
As an attorney, my preference is to work cooperatively with clients and other involved parties, and I offer mediation services to help reach that goal. However, when issues are in dispute and strong areas of conflict arise, I do not hesitate to assert my client's rights through litigation.
My clients and I have learned that to get a good result, we must work together as a team. I describe the family law legal process and proceedings in a language my clients can understand so that they can make the best possible decisions and choices. I am personally accessible and keep clients well-informed when issues arise.
