Claimed Lawyer ProfileQ&ASocial Media

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

Q. My brother needs a divorce lawyer, but he can't get details from consults enough to make a decision to end his marriage.
A: Every case is different. Varying circumstances impact whether someone gets spousal support and for what duration. There are numerous statutory factors considered. I don't know what has been discussed during these consultations or what information was missing from the consults that made it not possible for your brother to make a decision about representation. Understand that a consultation is not intended as a means to get legal advice. Giving legal advice to someone who is not your client is an ethics dilemma. Consultations are usually used to advise a potential client of their options and of what that particular consulting attorney can do for the potential client.
Q. I got married in brazil 2014. Hubby and I entered US as tourists and are out of status. Should we divorce in BR or CA?
A: I can't speak to immigration issues, but as far as where you can file for divorce generally speaking, you can file in CA as long as you meet the residency requirements. Since you have lived in CA for the last 5 years, it sounds like you can file in CA which requires you live in CA for 6 consecutive months preceding the date you file for divorce. What impact that would have on your immigration issues, I can't say.
Q. I was serverd with a RFO for custody modification. I was planning on my own RFO.
A: Each separately filed Request for Order is assigned its own hearing date. You could file your RFO and then ask, after the fact, that the two dates be consolidated. But why bother? If your RFO is for the same thing - modification of custody, indicate what you want in your responsive declaration to the other party's RFO.
