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
629 Questions Answered
Q. My husband had a rental property, Soon after we married, he sold it but put my name on the deed. Is that his or ours?
A: Property purchased prior to marriage is separate property of the person who purchased it. If title was transferred to you in a writing (such as an interspousal grant deed), then the property becomes community property as of the date of transfer. The value of the property that accumulated before the date of transfer remains separate property. In your situation however, the property was sold, so it's a moot point. The sale proceeds were put into a joint checking account during marriage and then used to purchase a home -- during the marriage. The home purchased during the marriage is community property, but subject to tracing, could arguably have a separate property interest resulting from a portion of the down payment on that house coming from sale proceeds from a separate property asset. In other words ... it's complicated.
Q. Do I need his permission if our 11y old daughter travels to another country? He has moved out of the state.
A: Whether you need his permission depends entirely on what your court orders say. Without having the benefit of reviewing your court orders regarding custody, it's impossible to answer this question. Contact a lawyer directly for a consultation and provide that lawyer with a copy of your court orders so he/she can advise as to what your rights and obligations are in this situation.
Q. Does separation count against the length of marriage ?
A: Date of separation marks the end of the community. If the length of marriage form date of marriage to date of separation is less than 10 years, then yes, it can impact your rights to support and division of property. However, there are exceptions. Whether those exceptions apply in your case, I can't say without further or additional information. Consult with an attorney in your area.
