Business And Family Law Strategies In California

As a former business manager, former General Counsel for an international firm, and an experienced commercial law attorney in private practice, I can work to resolve business law issues cost-effectively while preserving and advancing core business objectives.

I handle a range of legal issues relating to divorce law, including:

  • Family law: Including divorce law/marital dissolution law, legal separations, the drafting and review of prenuptial and post-marital agreements, the enforcement and modification of support awards and paternity actions
  • Mediation: I represent clients in mediation to help them cost-effectively resolve divorce and family law disputes.
  • Divorce: Including property division, custody and visitation issues, alimony and other divorce topics
  • Marital property division: including the handling and division of retirement accounts, homes that are “underwater” and family-owned businesses
  • Custody and visitation: I have handled hundreds of disputes involving the negotiation and litigation of child custody visitation disputes.
  • Child support: I help clients understand child support under the California child support guidelines, and I assist with modifications.
  • Alimony/spousal support: including temporary alimony, permanent alimony, modifications and enforcement

I also handle a wide range of commercial and business issues such as the formation of business entities; the purchase or sale of a business interest; employment counseling; the drafting, review and negotiation of contracts; the handling of intellectual property licensing and general business counseling.

I serve as secretary of the Rotary Club of Livermore Valley, and I am currently the secretary of the Rotarian Foundation of Livermore. I am a member of the Livermore Chamber of Commerce.
