Family Law Overview

Effective Family Law Solutions

It is normal to want to maintain control of your life in all situations. From career choices to family matters, we strive to keep things balanced. Unfortunately, if you are going through divorce or another family law matter, you may feel as though you have no control of your situation.

Most people don't understand what options they have in the legal system, and you cannot be expected to know the pros and cons of each choice if your options are not explained to you. If that is the situation you are facing, it is important to work with an experienced attorney who can guide you through the system.

When you contact my firm - La Quinta Law Group - you will find an attorney who can help you make informed decisions that are in your best interest at every step of the process. I work with individuals and families throughout the Coachella Valley to resolve family law matters regarding:

  • Divorce
  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Paternity
  • Domestic violence, civil harassment or restraining orders

Understanding the Big Picture in California Divorce

I have been practicing for 15 years, and I have a good idea of what to expect at each step of the process. Although I cannot guarantee the outcome of any situation, I have experience trying to view the situation through the eyes of the judge or the opposing counsel. By looking at situations as impartially and objectively as possible, I am able to help you understand the strengths and weaknesses of your claims, and of the other party, so that we can pursue the result that you want to achieve.

Determining Your Goals for the Divorce Process

When I meet with you, one of the first questions I ask is what you want to accomplish by the end of your case. Two people in the exact same position may want to accomplish completely different things. My advocacy and presentation to the court is based on your goals, so I make sure I understand what is important to you.

When it is appropriate, I encourage my clients to pursue mediation. Mediation can be a most efficient, cost-effective, amicable, and less stressful way to achieve your goals and get you past this difficult time. I work closely with you to help you understand and pursue the most effective approach to reach their goals.
