Child Custody & Visitation
There are two kinds of child custody: Legal custody, which means who makes important decisions for your children (like health care, education, and welfare), and Physical custody, which means who your children live with. Visitation (also called “time -share”) is the plan for how the parents will share time with the children.
Domestic violence is abuse or threats of abuse when the person being abused and the abuser are or have been in an intimate relationship (married or domestic partners, are dating or used to date, live or lived together, or have a child together). It is also when the abused person and the abusive person are closely related by blood or by marriage.
I operate my practice on the bedrock principle that clients should be billed fairly and communicated with promptly. I charge $250 per hour against a reasonable retainer, which I am able to do by keeping unnecessary overhead expenses low. Having practiced family law for over 9 years, I have seen a pattern of pitfalls that unnecessarily protract litigation and disappoint clients. I do my best to avoid these.
I received a bachelor of science degree from Syracuse University and a Juris Doctor degree from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law.
