Divorce (or Legal Separation)

Matters we help San Diego families resolve include:

Mediation (Divorce & Family)
With over 60 years of combined family law experience, our office is equipped to facilitate the resolution of complex divorce and family law issues through the California mediation process.
Child Custody & Visitation Issues

We have successfully helped parents and grandparents win their custody cases involving substance abuse, child abuse, domestic violence, personality disorders, parental alienation, and more.
