Experienced in Divorce Cases from Silicon Valley to the East Bay

Our Bay Area family law attorneys are highly experienced working with clients from the tech sector, and we understand the important considerations when it comes to issues involving the division of stock, the valuation of business interests, and complex assets such as equity compensation and initial public offerings. We provide high-quality representation to tech startup entrepreneurs and their partners across a range of family law matters, including cohabitation issues, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, legal separation, divorce, complex property division, and post-divorce modification motions and enforcement actions.

Although we are experienced working with clients from the tech sector and others with issues related to higher incomes and higher assets, we gladly accept cases of all types and sizes throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, including Marin County, Oakland/East Bay, San Mateo, Palo Alto, and San Jose. Our comprehensive family law practice goes beyond divorce and related issues and includes topics as diverse as domestic violence and paternity.

The Style of Representation That Meets Your Needs

Divorce and other family law matters range from amicable to high emotional conflict, and every case and every client is different. Our goal initially is to resolve the case in everyone’s best interest, ever mindful of our client’s needs and goals. We know from experience that negotiated or mediated results work best; they are more likely to meet the party’s needs, and each party is personally invested in the outcome, so they are more likely to follow through in voluntarily implementing the plan without the need for litigation. That said, our lawyers are no stranger to litigation and are always ready to advocate vigorously for our clients in the courtroom. Whatever you need or your case needs, our experienced family law team is ready to provide the level of service to get results that achieve your goals.
