Family Law: Working through family problems, such as divorce or child custody, can be daunting and frustrating. Fewer areas of the law hold as much emotion as do those that deal with our children, our possessions and our futures. When you need a family law attorney, you want one who understands the sensitive nature of these issues while protecting your interests and rights.
With 32 years of experience in representing individuals in divorce and family law matters, our office can aggressively defend your interests and advise you on how marital assets will likely be divided, child and spousal support determined, and child custody awarded. In each instance, understanding how the court views certain facts about income, health, work history, educational background and your relationship with your children is important for preparing your case and protecting your rights.
Estate Planning, Wills and Trusts: It is important to avoid probate and to make the testamentary transfer of assets to those you care about easy and at minimal cost. We can help you avoid the pitfalls of estate planning and distribution. We can also assist you with durable powers of attorney, wills, probate and non-probate transfers.
Real Estate: With 12 years experience as a real estate broker, we are familiar with all kinds of real estate transactions. We can help you avoid common pitfalls in the sale and purchase of real estate. If something goes wrong, we can effectively represent your interests. We routinely prepare real estate transfer documents, deeds, change of ownership statements, recording, etc.
Civil Litigation: We represent clients in civil and personal injury cases throughout the high desert area and in Bakersfield. Our office has litigated a wide variety of matters from wrongful death, personal injury, breach of contract, negligence, etc.
