Biography

Providing high quality legal representation to a wide range of clients throughout the greater Los Angeles area since 1993. I offer reasonable and highly competitive hourly rates where applicable. Prenuptial Agreements and Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDRO) are expertly prepared for one flat fee. The best interests of the children are the focus of the courts and of my law practice. Once your family law matter has resolved, you will not be abandoned. If modifications of any support, child custody or visitation orders are needed in the future, contact my office to reopen your file. I was recently asked what types of medical malpractice cases I am willing to take. My answer? I take good cases. Unlike most other personal injury lawyers, I get the records reviewed by a qualified expert up front before any letters are sent or any case is filed. If I agree to take your case it's because I know it's good and I can make you money.

Legal Answers
727 Questions Answered
Q. Serving supplemental declaration and income and expenses documents
A: Yes, he has to serve you with everything and anything he files with the court. He also needs to provide (file) proof of that service. If he's claiming to have served you (i.e. he filed a proof of service) at the time of the hearing you can tell the court that you did not receive what he claims to have served. It's then up to the judge to decide whether you were in fact served (i.e. who to believe in a he-said-she-said situation)
Q. I got a legal separation dated Aug 2020. In the separation judgement I was to get half of everything.
A: Your judgment should say how the assets will be divided. I don't mean "you get half". I mean, HOW you get half. i.e. whether an equalization payment is owed to you, or whether a physical item of personal property is supposed to be given to you, whether you need a QDRO to divide up retirement accounts, whether a rollover is needed, etc. If you don't understand or know the logistics of how you are to get "half of everything", then you should consult with an attorney.
Q. I have been living separately from my husband for over 10 years due to DV. If I file for divorce does he get alimony?
A: Probably not. The passage of time without him receiving financial support from you is relevant to whether he needs it now -- 10 years later. It is unlikely the court would grant such a request from him if he made one after you file for divorce.
