About Serine A. Tsuda

Serine is Certified Specialist in Family Law. Her practice has been devoted exclusively to all aspects of family law since 2012. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Pennsylvania, magna cum laude, and received her juris doctorate degree from USC Gould School of Law.

Serine believes it is important that each client’s case be handled in a highly-customized and solution-focused manner to align with her client’s individual needs, goals, and financial situation. She represents a wide variety of clients, some of whom never see the inside of a courtroom, and others who choose to actively litigate their cases in court. Inside the courtroom, Serine is known for her meticulous preparation, eloquence, and effectiveness. No matter who she represents, Serine is committed to maintaining honesty and integrity in her advocacy, which at times means telling clients things that they do not want to hear. Serine says: “I meet very good people usually at the worst point in their lives, and helping them through that point in time is extremely rewarding to me.”

Serine is proficient in speaking Japanese. Having been raised in both Tokyo and Hawaii, Serine is able to use her unique international background to understand and cater to international family law cases involving complex custody and financial issues. She has experience in dealing with Hague child abduction cases.

In addition to her private practice, Serine serves on the Board of Directors for the Harriett Buhai Center for Family Law, a legal non-profit organization in Los Angeles which is dedicated to protecting victims of domestic violence and improving the well-being of children living in poverty. Serine is the current President of the Board of Directors. In 2015, Serine was awarded the Pro Bono Volunteer of the Year award for her pro bono services to the Center. Serine also volunteers her time as a Court-appointed settlement officer with the Los Angeles Superior Court. Serine is designated as a Super Lawyer Rising Star.
