Summary

Porrino Law PC operates under the guidance of principal Dominic H. Porrino, who entered law practice with the intention of protecting the assets and safety of citizens by helping them negotiate the complexities of the California legal system. The competitive spirit that prompted him to play lacrosse and rugby in his youth now drives development of strategies to protect the best interests of his clients.

Mr. Porrino, an attorney whose practice encompasses legal separation, divorce, child custody and support, estate planning and other civil matters, obtained his law degree from Golden Gate University School of Law and was admitted to the California State Bar in 2007. Mr. Porrino’s fundamental interest in people prompted him to major as an undergraduate student in psychology, a course of study that has given him insights into the emotional toll of separation, divorce and child custody proceedings. As a result, Mr. Porrino treats his clients with compassion and understanding.

Mr. Porrino is a member of the California Bar Association, and its Family Law and Estate Planning sections. He is also a member of the family law section of the Sacramento County Bar Association. He volunteers his legal expertise as a family law and simple wills attorney for the AIDS Legal Referral Panel (ALRP).

http://porrinolaw.com 925.448.2439|dp@porrinolaw.com Child Custody Recommending Counseling is a form of negotiation or mediation between people with the help of a professional Child Custody Recommending Counselor (or Mediator), who is a mental health professional.  Family Code section 3170 - external link requires Child Custody Recommending Counseling (CCRC) take place whenever issues of custody or visitation are in dispute. This applies whenever a party to the case wants to obtain or change a custody or visitation order, and the other party does not agree to the change.  The Mediator works with the parties to reach an agreement regarding custody, visitation and parenting issues for the children. If the parties reach a full agreement before or during mediation, the Mediator will prepare a report of the agreement that will be available to the parties and the court before the scheduled hearing. If the parties reach a partial agreement or they do not agree on anything, the Mediator will make recommendations to the court on the items still in dispute.  Child Custody Recommending Counseling may include, but is not limited to, interviews with the parents, children, other parties who may be legally joined to the case, and other individuals and organizations who may have information about the situation. CCRC only addresses what transpired in the recent past and helps you develop a parenting plan for the next year, which you can modify as your situation or your child’s needs change.
