Your Case will Benefit from a Board-Certified Family Law Specialist

Selecting the most qualified and dedicated attorney is a crucial decision to handle your Family Law matters. So many attorneys are “generalists,” and sometimes even advertise themselves on their websites as handling several practice areas (e.g. Business Litigation, Estate Planning, Personal Injury, Bankruptcy, and Divorce) – suggesting that they are a “Jack of all Trades”. Unfortunately, in the complex world of the law, that often means: “Master of None…”

California Board of Legal SpecializationWe are Certified Family Law Specialists – In sharp contrast to run of the mill general practice attorneys, a Board-Certified Family Law Specialist, is one who has proven to other lawyers, judges and the California State Bar’s Board of Legal Specialization that they have maintained a dedicated focus on one specific law section where they have proven top-drawer expertise, had the advanced educational accomplishments, had the courtroom experience, were reviewed by other Certified Specialist lawyers & judges and then were awarded the title of Certified Family Law Specialist.
