The end of a marriage and/or domestic partnership may be devastating. The decision to divorce is stressful enough, and your legal counsel should not cause additional emotional strain. We guide our clients through the divorce (dissolution) process with not only efficiency and thoroughness, but compassion and integrity.
Our family law practice group handles a wide range of matters related to divorce including: child custody and support, spousal support (alimony), legal separation, community property division, separate property recognition, uncontested and contested dissolutions, and post-judgment disputes. Of course, these issues often require aggressive positions; but strong negotiation without unnecessary posturing often keeps the conflict and emotional distress lessened, with a major bonus of keeping legal fees down.
While California recognizes “no-fault” divorces, it is impossible to completely separate the reasons a marriage/partnership broke-down from the process of legally dissolving the relationship. Although the underlying reasons leading to dissolution may be important to address, we strive to keep our clients focused on resolution. We keep our clients well-informed, we foster open lines of communication, and we set justified expectations. We provide thoughtful options during a difficult time ensuring that our clients are able to make decisions that are right for them.
We represent clients throughout the Bay Area including: San Francisco County, San Mateo County, Santa Clara County, Marin County, Alameda County, Contra Costa County, Napa County, and Sonoma County.
