2,251 clients to date; 136 new clients in last 12 months. Don't the below numbers make choosing a family law attorney a no brainer:
Before you make a wrong move in hiring a family lawyer, you should insure he or she has the requisite family law experience you need because many of the local lawyers advertise lots of years of experience ostensibly as family lawyers and yet we never see them in Family Court. Be wary and don't hire anybody just based on advertising. Get personal referrals from the legal community or from others who have experienced divorce.
Avoid Bullies and hope your ex does too.
Beware of Attorneys:
who drag out cases by being unresponsive or intentionally antagonistic in their responses
that add fuel to the fire to extend cases and force litigation
who seem to charge huge sums for little work or poor quality work
that appear in Court unprepared and who command little respect from the Court
who abuse substances that diminish their abilities and effectiveness
that treat everyone poorly including their clients

EXCLUSIVE FAMILY LAW ATTORNEYS
Marilyn says, "My firm represents men in family law matters because we feel compelled to help men secure custody, visitation, and reasonable child or spousal support. Children need their father. If you are a man and you need competent representation from someone who gives a damn, we can help you."
FEMALE FAMILY LAW ATTORNEYS
Women Attorneys in our office work well with men. There is no male rivalry or anything to prove. In a Family Law Courtroom, a woman attorney and male client seem normal, legitimate, and credible. A male attorney with a male client can easily be perceived as being arrogant, chauvinistic, and aggressive. If you are a man in marital distress, what makes sense to you?
HAPPY FAMILY LAW ATTORNEYS
Marilyn says, "Call me now before your wife does."
SHARP AND PREPARED ATTORNEYS are hard to find. The California and Nevada Bar Exams are three full days long and take months of special preparation besides law school. Only about 64% of first time takers pass, so those that do show many attributes that translate into being a bright, prepared, persevering, and dedicated person with courtroom type of stamina. All of the attorneys in this office passed all their Bar Exams on the first try.
