Practice Areas

Small Gavel Icon


We understand that divorce is rarely easy. We provide caring representation to clients facing contested divorce, as well as to those able to seek a more amicable resolution through uncontested divorce, divorce mediation or legal separation.


Child Custody and Visitation

In most circumstances, children benefit from spending time with both parents. We will work to create enforceable parenting plans containing child custody and visitation agreements that uphold the best interests of your child.


Child Support

Like most states, California has child support guidelines in place to calculate appropriate support amounts. These guidelines do not take special circumstances into consideration. We will help you fight for child support that is fair and provides for your children. Our firm also represents and defends parents in child support enforcement hearings before the Department of Child Support Services.


Property Division

The division of property and debt is often one of the most contentious issues in a divorce. Our firm will get the appropriate characterization and valuation of your community property, striving for fair division. We also handle issues concerning spousal support/alimony.


Move Aways and Relocations

Relocation is a common issue when parents are divorced or separated. We have experience representing parents who seek to relocate their child and parents who seek to defend against a child move away.


Paternity Disputes

Paternity disputes can have a grave impact on everyone involved. We file petitions to establish paternity and petitions to disestablish paternity.


Domestic Violence

Domestic violence can leave a lasting impact on every family member. Whether you are victim of or charged with domestic violence, our firm will make sure your rights are protected.
