San Diego Divorce Attorney


If you’re at the point in your life where you’re thinking about hiring a  San Diego divorce attorney for divorce, child custody dispute, child support, alimony (spousal support) etc., life has already become pretty complicated.  Most of our clients have one objective above all others: Don’t make it any worseThey are looking for someone who has as much finesse as he does fight – who knows that conflict doesn’t always call for combat. Having decades of experience in the San Diego family courts, knowing the judges and the law helps, too.

I start with empowering clients.  That means first educating you about your options and then helping you navigate an often sophisticated maze of choices.  It really can feel like a jungle out there. I’m about making it better for you. That requires thinking outside the box.  There’s an old saying that “If the only tool in your box is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.”  The legal community is proud of its traditions which go back hundreds of years. Traditions can hurt creative problem solving, though. Clients seem pleasantly surprised when we come up with decidedly unconventional solutions to the problems they face.

For a long time,divorce attorneys have assumed that the longer the divorce attorney works on the problem, the closer to a solution. It isn’t necessarily so. My working theory? The better an attorney works on the problem, the better and faster the problem is solved. Creativity and ingenuity are the best tools I bring to a client’s cause. And for my clients, that puts time on their side.

The clients that are most satisfied working with our divorce law firm want to be in control of the process, not be controlled by the process. These people who knew that “if” their case got messy,they had a legal team that will have tried to prevent it from doing so. Our satisfied clients know we won’t escalate a family law case unless absolutely necessary. This isn’t a divorce law firm for those interested in “blood sport litigation.” There are other lawyers that might be a better fit for that. This is the law firm for people who want to “move on” with the least amount of collateral damage.


What is different about this divorce lawyer?

We’re different here. I have one goal, and one goal alone: Solve the problems presented by you, our client. One obvious problem for many is the high cost of family court litigation. One of the ways I solve that problem is no billable hours. You determine our mission. We get the job done. No matter how long it takes or how difficult it is. You will pay a set amount and never get a bill for more money. That means you and I only have to have one conversation about how much the case will cost.  It makes working together so much less stressful.
