Ray has practiced exclusively in family law since 1995. He specializes in all aspects of family law litigation, from high-conflict child custody issues involving “move-away” requests, domestic violence and abuse, to complex support, property and financial cases involving high-asset/high-earner individuals. As a young lawyer in Los Angeles, he assisted in writs and appeals, and in litigation of high-profile celebrity cases.
In the area of child custody, Ray has extensive experience with a wide range of cases. He has successfully challenged and defended recommendations by court appointed evaluators. He has litigated both domestic and international abduction cases involving Hague and non-Hague Convention signatory countries in Europe and Asia and has successfully orchestrated the return of abducted children, both from within the United States and from other countries. Owing to the complexity of cases he has handled, Ray routinely works with experts in other fields, including medicine, psychology, accounting, and finance to ensure successful and effective representation.
Ray’s emphasis is the Client. Thus, before litigation is pursued, he explores all avenues of settlement.
