A Trusted California Family Law Resource
We take the time to learn about you and your case. No matter how complex your family law issue may seem, we will develop a legal strategy for you. Together, we will navigate a potentially difficult time and put you on the path towards a brighter future.
Put Our Experience To Work For You
For over 20 years, clients in Sacramento, Yolo, Placer, El Dorado, Sonoma, and Napa County have sought our legal counsel in matters of dissolution of marriage and divorce; legal separation; annulment; restraining orders; child custody and support, including child custody relocation issues; property and business divisions; spousal support; and step-parent adoptions. We also represent clients with post-judgment family law issues such as move-away cases, resulting in custody modifications or changes in financial circumstances necessitating a modification of support obligations.
Educating You About Your Legal Options
We believe that client education is essential to helping you achieve your goals. From your first meeting with us, we will take the time to listen to your concerns and explain your legal options. You can count on us to give you our honest, legal opinion. At the same time, we will strive to maximize your result while minimizing your emotional upset. Litigation can be costly and often takes an emotional toll. By working strategically with opposing counsel, we may save you time and money by negotiating a favorable settlement agreement.
