Ricardo P. August 21, 2021
Outstanding, Honest, and Knowledgeable I was referred to Denise by a close acquaintance. Once I met Denise in a consult, I knew she was the right attorney to represent me. Denise not only helped me calm myself, but she was also confident that the outcome of my matter would be positive. Denise is a strong attorney that puts her excellent knowledge of the law to its full potential. She is well mannered, kindhearted. She cared about me and my children, because, as we all know, children can suffer the most when they are impacted by their parents’ divorce. I did not know how to respond to the documents that were served on me. However, when I selected Denise to represent me, she responded to my documents, emails, and other forms of communication in an ethical, professional, timely and proper manner. I am speechless and lack the words to express how Denise handled my case. I was able to obtain custody of my children and I am now able to continue to cherish the beautiful memories we built up together over the years. Denise, you have made my life a positive one and you made a tremendous difference. When I am asked who was my attorney, I immediately say, “Denise Oxley,” and provide her phone number.

Articulate, Eloquent, Ethical and Extremely Knowledgeable Family Lawyer - Best Decision I Ever Made At the end of my tether, after a very unhappy marriage of long duration, I finally took the almighty step of initiating divorce. This was by far the most frightening decision of my life. Intimidated and terrified of the California divorce process, and what the final outcome would be, I found myself at Ms. Oxley's door. Her calm demeanor, experience, vast knowledge of family law, and genuine care for her client's needs are unrivaled. Ms. Oxley is communicative and very responsive to clients' needs, explaining procedures and expected outcomes in simple layman's terms. Obviously highly regarded by her peers, Ms. Oxley's presence in the Court Room is strong, yet respectful. She is well prepared and naturally equipped with a memory like an elephant! Professionalism and ethics are high on the list of attributes Ms. Oxley displays, yet she maintains a deep understanding and empathetic approach to clients' particular problems. Ms. Oxley guided me through the maze of forms, documents and procedures, simplifying and advising. My divorce was traumatic. It culminated in a trial, which took a full day and a half. Ms. Oxley easily and calmly navigated the entire trial using the new Teams conference call format. Ms. Oxley changed my life for the better; counselling me through some of the darkest days of my life. I cannot speak highly enough of her, not only as a first rate lawyer, but also as one of the most decent and kindest human beings you will ever meet in this life.

Experienced attorney with office located in Rancho Bernardo, San Diego. In practice in San Diego County for 15 years. Appeared in Los Angeles County, Riverside County and Orange County courts. My practice is limited to those counties.

Experience in Estate Planning arose from the connection that exists between the two areas of law practiced in my firm. Divorce causes change in estate plans, wills, asset allocation, beneficiary and Powers of Attorney designations. The two areas of law naturally go together. And even if they do not in your case, we have the skill and experience to assist you with your specific needs.
