Orange, California

When it comes to family law, legal experience and personal compassion are always a winning combination. Our firm focuses on family law and we have a rare level of skill and understanding for divorce and child custody cases. I have successfully tried hundreds of cases in all areas of family law, including child custody, support, property, paternity, and other related matters. We service clients throughout the state of California.

I am a Certified Family Law Specialist by the State Bar of California, Board of Specialization - a rare distinction enjoyed by a very small fraction of lawyers in California. In addition, I have taught college-level courses on family law and over 60 continuing education courses in family law for lawyers, judges and accountants. I have also been consulted by the media on family law issues.
