“Now Offering Flat Fees in all Family Law Cases”
In this challenging economic climate, I am proud to offer flat fees in all of my cases, including litigation, instead of charging by the hour. I charge flat fees because over the years, I have learned how long it takes to prepare and file pleadings, to get ready for a hearing, or to try a case. I know what is necessary and what is not. I know that most clients do not have the luxury of spending tens of thousands of dollars for expert witnesses, court reporters or nitpicky court fights that do not improve my client’s position. On the other hand, hiring a lawyer that bills by the hour is kind of like agreeing to buy a house before knowing the final price.


I concentrate my practice on family law matters and probate issues. It is what I do. If you need any help or have any questions, please contact me. I would love to help.

Divorce and Separation

Divorce and separation involves protecting your rights in the event of a divorce or a legal separation whether the divorce is contested or uncontested. If you or your spouse are considering a separation or divorce in California, I can help. I will inform you about your legal rights and help you resolve custody arrangements, property division issues, child support matters and spousal support.

Child Custody

Child custody involves attempting to obtain an initial determination or a modification of custody that is best for your family. Child custody is sometimes one of the most difficult issues to resolve in family law matters. Many factors can affect the custody determination. It is important that you know your rights and that your children’s interests are taken into consideration. If you need help in an original custody determination or if you are having problems with a court ordered custody arrangement in California, I can help. 

Child and/or Spousal Support

I handle cases concerning child and/or spousal support. If you need assistance or advice regarding child and/or spousal support in California, I can help. I have experience in actions to establish or to modify child support. Child support issues can directly affect your child’s current and future financial well being. I will focus on the unique needs of your family as I work towards a fair resolution of your case.


In California, the processes for establishing paternity are fairly rigid. Also, there are important deadlines with potentially significant ramifications if unmet. I help mothers and fathers understand their rights and responsibilities in paternity cases, including child support, visitation and custody.

Although, I focus my practice on handling the above areas, I also have many years of experience handling a wide variety of other legal matters. Please contact me if you have any questions regarding your particular legal question or concern no matter the subject area. I may be able to help you, or I can refer you to someone who can.
