Working Towards Amicable Settlements With an Eye to Litigation

While remaining sensitive to the issues you face, we approach each case as though it will be vigorously contested in court and are prepared to do so if that becomes necessary. By negotiating from strength, we are most often able to arrive at mutually beneficial settlements, which save you time, expense and discomfort, and help you and your children achieve the future you deserve.

Practice Areas

A Pasadena family law attorney with our firm will be sensitive to the issues that you face and will work constructively with opposing parties on even the most emotionally charged and divisive issues. We are available to assist you on the following matters:

We know our clients are often anxious and confused about family law matters, and we are dedicated to guiding them every step of the way through the process.

In representing the needs of you and your children, we make all reasonable efforts to resolve your matter fairly through thorough preparation of all issues and negotiations with the other side. First we make sure that we have enough information to enter into productive negotiations. This is particularly important when we are representing the spouse who has less information about the family finances and income. Second, after we have enough information, we try to initiate settlement negotiations by making a comprehensive settlement proposal on your behalf.

We have found that we often have an advantage by framing the discussion with making the first complete proposal for settlement. We explore with you the best way of handling negotiations in your case. This may vary from case to case, and can involve face-to-face negotiations, written communications, phone conferences, or meetings with mediators such as attorneys who specialize in mediation or using retired family law judges. Finally, if settlement negotiations are unsuccessful, we proceed to litigation. We are highly skilled in litigation and have a strong record of success in court in difficult and challenging family law situations.
