Don't let the complexities of family law confuse or scare you

Family law is complex and constantly changing - a Certified Specialist stays current with the law. Call our office today to learn more about how we can help you.

What can a Certified Family Law Specialist do for you?

When you hire the services of a Certified Family Law Specialist, you aren't just getting an attorney; you're getting an attorney who has extensive knowledge and experience in family law. Some of the things we can do for you are:

  • Make certain marital settlement agreements and pre- or post-nuptial agreements are properly prepared
  • Identify tax issues which may affect the distribution of marital property and the payment of child, spousal or family support
  • Help you effectively deal with complex legal issues involving community property laws
  • Negotiate or mediate the difficult and emotional issues relating to legal separation, dissolution of marriage and child custody
  • Protect clients who need restraining orders for domestic violence
  • Handle matters relating to modification of child custody, spousal support or child support
  • Offer a collaborative process enabling clients to resolve their issues without court intervention

Whether your situation is simple or complex, you should seriously consider hiring an attorney who specializes in Family Law and who is committed through certification to maintaining her or his proficiency through continual practice and continuing education.

Why does the State Bar certify legal specialists?

There are many reasons why the State Bar certifies legal specialists, but chief among those reasons are:

  • To help the public identify attorneys who have demonstrated proficiency in specialized fields of law
  • To encourage the maintenance and improvement of attorney competence in specialized fields of law

To give you a better understanding of just how rigid the State Bar is where certifications are concerned, let us mention a little known fact: 

  • Less than 1% of all attorney's are certified as legal specialists in their specialized field of law.

What does it mean when an attorney is a Certified Specialist?

A Certified Specialist is more than just an attorney who specializes in a particular area of law. A California attorney who is certified by the State Bar as a Family Law Specialist must have:

  • Taken and passed a written examination in Family Law
  • Demonstrated a high level of experience in Family Law
  • Fulfilled ongoing education requirements
  • Been favorably evaluated by other attorneys and judges familiar with her or his work
