Pasadena Family Law

Helping you reach solutions in divorce, custody, and all other aspects of family law.
Handling All Family Law Matters

Family law challenges nearly always bring with them some level of emotional and financial stress. As a family law attorney servicing the needs of individuals and families in California for over two decades, I know exactly the type of anxiety you are dealing with in your family law matter. My practice is dedicated to helping you achieve as much peace of mind as possible while we work together to win positive outcomes in whatever family law challenge you are facing, so that you can head into the next chapter of life with confidence and security.

Guidance in Your Divorce

The divorce process in California can have serious financial and relational consequences for both spouses involved, as well as children, and working with inexperienced counsel or attempting to go it alone can negatively impact you for years to come. I help spouses navigate the divorce process to achieve fair results in the areas of property division, spousal support, child support, and custody disputes. My approach is to work towards collaborative, drama-free, and economical outcomes whenever possible, but to use all available tools and strategies to get you the justice you deserve when compromise is not possible or you are unfairly treated by a spouse in the divorce process.

Family Law Beyond Divorce

In addition to divorce, I work with parties across Southern California to overcome family law obstacles in other areas as well, including representing individuals in crafting fair and durable prenuptial agreements, unmarried parents in handling custody and child support matters, parents seeking or defending against modification and/or termination of custody and support orders, and everything in-between. As a family law attorney with 23 years of experience and the co-author of the book Inside the Minds: California Family Strategies, I have the experience necessary to effectively manage all types of family law matters, from simple, uncontested matters to protracted high-asset disputes.
