Biography

Providing high quality legal representation to a wide range of clients throughout the greater Los Angeles area since 1993. I offer reasonable and highly competitive hourly rates where applicable. Prenuptial Agreements and Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDRO) are expertly prepared for one flat fee. The best interests of the children are the focus of the courts and of my law practice. Once your family law matter has resolved, you will not be abandoned. If modifications of any support, child custody or visitation orders are needed in the future, contact my office to reopen your file. I was recently asked what types of medical malpractice cases I am willing to take. My answer? I take good cases. Unlike most other personal injury lawyers, I get the records reviewed by a qualified expert up front before any letters are sent or any case is filed. If I agree to take your case it's because I know it's good and I can make you money.

Legal Answers

Q. do you still have to pay child support if she graduates at 17?
A: Yes because she is still minor. If she happens to graduate from HS before she turns 18 you continue to pay child support until she turns 18.
Q. Can I continue with my divorce proceedings in Northern California if the divorce was filed in Southern California?
A: Under certain limited circumstances you may be able to file a motion to change venue. If there are minor children involved and they have moved to No. Cal. and have lived there for more than 3 consecutive months, it may make sense to move the venue to a court closer to where the minor children live. Otherwise, you can continue to proceed with the case where it already is. If court appearances become necessary, with today's technology and the current pandemic, accommodations can be made for a remote appearance. You can also hire local (So. Cal.) counsel to handle things for you. Seems to me if the case is "several years" old, it should be moved towards its conclusion and closed.
Q. In CA. My husband/his ex never filed a QDRO. He died. What do I need to do to get CalPERS to pay me his pension?
A: You probably don't have standing to act on his behalf in family court. That being said, there's definitely something that can be done. When someone dies, the successor in interest (probably you) can be joined into the divorce case to sign documents, including a QDRO. That's what needs to be done. I recommend you retain an attorney or maybe contact the attorney who represented your husband in the divorce to file the necessary paperwork.
