Contact an Experienced Family Law Attorney for
Legal Assistance in any Adoption Matter

In family law matters, you are best served when your attorney is both your advocate and a strong negotiator. For best results, it is critical that your attorney be someone who will listen closely to your concerns and wishes and advises you about the law, how the court might act in the case, practical considerations of different strategies, and what approach to take to achieve the best outcome for you.  I am not a mediator nor do I practice collaborative law; I am your attorney.

I will be candid in letting you know what I think will work and what will not and realistic with you as to possible outcomes.

Your involvement—since you know the case better than I possibly could, you will have ongoing communication with me so we can make certain that I am working towards a resolution that is satisfactory to you.

We achieve this through our initial and other conferences in the office, on the telephone, and through email correspondence (I usually check emails early each morning, as well as on weekends). When we need to confer, I will accommodate your schedule to find a time that works for us both.

I work with a certified paralegal, Sheelah Giacomini, to whom I can delegate initial research and other work done under my supervision, which is more efficient for you. Sheelah and I have worked together over 22 years, and clients find her a delight to work with. I charge you for my fees, her fees, and out-of-pocket costs—nothing else.

Contact me today if you need legal assistance with any of the following:

  • Adoption
  • International & Interstate Custody
  • Parental Abductions
  • Divorce & Legal Separation
  • Pre & Post Nuptial Agreements
  • Child & Spousal Support
  • Child Custody

All I do is family law—adoption, dissolutions (divorce), child custody, parental abductions, child and spousal support, property division, and pre and post-nuptial agreements.  I practice interstate custody and international (Hague) cases. While my practice is located in Marin County, I practice on a regular basis in other counties, including San Francisco, Sonoma, Contra Costa, Alameda, Napa, and Solano.
