We are a team of professionals committed to providing you with the strength and compassion necessary to meet all of your family law needs.
Our practice covers all aspects of family and matrimonial law in all of the Bay Area counties, primarily focusing on Contra Costa, Alameda, Solano, and San Francisco counties. We will expertly navigate you through your family law matter, whether it involves termination of a domestic partnership, paternity, custody, visitation, domestic violence, adoption, guardianship, support, an annulment, legal separation, or post-judgment issues. Regardless which of these processes you are dealing with, we understand the strain and pressure that these matters inevitably put on clients and the necessity of providing strong representation. Therefore, our knowledgeable attorneys and legal staff strive to make the entire process as easy as possible on you while providing you with high quality legal services.
The legal process can be confusing and intimidating for anyone who finds himself or herself in the middle of a family law dispute. When you choose to entrust your case in our hands, you will receive the utmost professional care and personal attention that your case deserves. We pride ourselves on building your confidence as we work with you towards resolving your case. Our attorneys strive to provide strong legal representation while remembering that you are a client, not a case, and that you therefore require respect, dignity, and compassion throughout this process. We bring an energetic and creative approach towards practicing law and will zealously fight for your best interests under the law without losing sight of your personal goals and needs.
Setting up a consultation appointment allows you to discuss your legal matter with a family law professional who will take the time necessary to thoroughly examine your case, educate you on solutions to your particular issues, and outline potential courses of action and options. A consultation is not a high-pressure sales pitch; rather it is your opportunity for you to see if you are comfortable working with me based on our meeting. This is your time to use how you see fit, and our attorneys always encourage potential clients to come prepared to ask as many questions about their case as they want.
If you choose to retain our firm, you will be provided with an accessible team of attorneys and caring support staff to keep you informed about the status of your case and to treat you with the care and compassion that you deserve. You will have a strong group of allies in your corner that will protect your interests, see to your legal needs, and offer strength and confidence you can depend on.
