I have practiced law in Los Angeles County for the past 39 years. I have always practiced family law throughout my career, but have limited my practice to exclusively family law cases for the last six years. I adapt to a client's needs in an attorney in that some clients want a collaborative and partnership working relationship with their lawyer throughout their case, while others prefer to entrust their case to me and take a more passive role.

As an Attorney, I pride myself on integrity and professionalism.

It will always be my goal to resolve a matter amicably in the interest of preserving dignity and protecting any child caught up in the chaos of divorce. However, when amicable efforts fail, I zealously represent my clients' best interests while protecting the needs of the family.

Dealing with family law issues?

Family law generally concerns domestic relations and family-related matters such as marriage, civil unions, domestic partnerships, adoptions, paternity, guardianships, domestic abuse, surrogacy, child custody, child abduction, the dissolution of marriage and associated issues. Each state has its own set of family laws, and traveling across state borders can sometimes affect your rights and those of your family.

Contrary to popular belief, seeking the advice of a family law attorney does not necessarily mean that something is amiss in your family. A family law attorney can help negotiate prenuptial/premarital agreements for clients in anticipation of marriage or advise same-sex couples on relevant legal issues affecting their relationship. They also can help with adoption proceedings and other procedures involving children.

Family law attorneys often do represent clients seeking a divorce, annulment or legal separation, and the complicated issues that can arise as a result. Although domestic abuse is a criminal offense, some family law attorneys are skilled at handling these situations, as they are often entangled with other family law issues.

Some jurisdictions certify lawyers as family law specialists, which means these attorneys have met the certifying body's minimum requirements for education, experience, and examination.


No-Fault Proceeding: A civil case in which parties may resolve their dispute without a formal finding of error or fault.

Paternity Suit: A lawsuit to determine the father of a child whose parents were not married when the child was born.
