A Certified Specialist is more than just an attorney who

specializes in a particular area of law

A California attorney who is certified by the State Bar as a Family Law Specialist must have: Taken and passed a written examination in Family Law Demonstrated a high level of experience in Family Law Fulfilled ongoing education requirements Been favorably evaluated by other attorneys and judges familiar with her or his work

Why does the State Bar certify legal specialists?

There are many reasons why the State Bar certifies legal specialists, but chief among those reasons are: To help the public identify attorneys who have demonstrated proficiency in specialized fields of law To encourage the maintenance and improvement of attorney competence in specialized fields of law To give you a better understanding of just how rigid the State Bar is where certifications are concerned, let us mention a little known fact: Less than 1% of all attorney's are certified as legal specialists in their specialized field of law

What can a Certified Family Law Specialist do for you?

When you hire the services of a Certified Family Law Specialist, you aren't just getting an attorney; you're getting an attorney who has extensive knowledge and experience in family law. Some of the things we can do for you are: Make certain that marital settlement agreements and pre- or post-nuptial agreements are properly prepared Identify tax issues which may affect the distribution of marital property and the payment of child, spousal or family support Help you effectively deal with complex legal issues involving community property laws Negotiate or mediate the difficult and emotional issues relating to legal separation, dissolution of marriage and child custody Protect clients who need restraining orders for domestic violence Handle matters relating to modification of child custody, spousal support or child support Offer a collaborative process enabling clients to resolve their issues without court intervention Whether your situation is simple or complex, you should seriously consider hiring an attorney who specializes in Family Law and who is committed, through certification, to maintaining her or his proficiency through continual practice and continuing education.
