I was involved in a highly complex divorce and child custody dispute in my personal life. This involved false criminal allegations fabricated to obtain child custody.
I hired five attorneys in two different states, faced outright false criminal charges, and had family law court cases in two different courts in two different states. I also experienced police misconduct through my contact with the police relating to family law problems. Through my personal experience, I learned the family law courts are severely flawed, criminal charges are absolutely filed against innocent people, and many police officers use unsavory tactics and others outright are biased, corrupt liars.
My personal experiences in life prior to becoming an attorney motivated me to practice family law, criminal defense, and to focus on police misconduct. To me, representing people in family law cases and in criminal matters is highly personal and I do it as a matter of principle because I strongly and deeply believe in what I'm doing. I love what I do. I'm passionate about what I do. And I will treat your case as if it were my own.
My personal experience in life sets me apart from my fellow attorneys. Most of my colleagues had their first experiences with the law in a book or in a classroom. While I have a formal legal education, I learned my first lessons about how the legal system works in real life, not in a classroom. I've personally lived through what you're going through. I am passionate about what I do because it is personal to me.
I haven't just studied family law or practiced in the family law courts. I have gone through a divorce, disputed custody of my own children, and been subjected to the rulings of family law courts. I know what is at stake for you.
I haven't just represented people accused of crimes, I've been falsely accused of crimes. I haven't just had people tell me about police misconduct, I've seen it with my own eyes and experienced it firsthand.
My own experiences in life are why I chose to practice family and criminal law. And I've represented many people just like you who were charged with crimes, going through a divorce, and disputing child custody.
I know what you are experiencing because I've been through it myself. I'm not some square guy in a suit who grew up with a silver spoon in my mouth, mommy and daddy paid for my education, and learned everything I know from a book, a classroom, or playing around with someone else's life.
When a person trusts me with a very serious issue in their life that is a responsibility I take very seriously. I am a military veteran and used the Montgomery GI Bill to obtain my undergraduate degree. Then while managing a corporate business during the day I worked my way through law school at night. I will give your case the seriousness it deserves and put in hard work to get you the best possible outcome.
I know what you're going through is one of the most important events of your life. I know the things that are most important to you in life are in jeopardy. You can trust me to represent you. Call me today for a consultation.
At the Law Offices of Justin Kirk Tabayoyon we genuinely care about helping you. You're not just a case. You're a person who we are here to help, and we are passionate about what we do.
Yes, we offer limited scope representation where we handle the complicated legal issues and the client handles the simpler tasks to save money and reduce costs.
Educating yourself on the legal issues involved is encouraged. Nobody knows more about the facts of your case and nobody cares more about the outcome of your case than you. The more active and involved you are with the legal issues in your case, the better.
No. This would probably take much more time, energy, and money than it would if you just hired us to represent you. If you are cost sensitive, we offer limited scope representation for some legal issues, and we periodically take on a limited number of clients at a reduced rate based upon their income as part of our commitment to serving the community. Call us for more details.
Yes. We are a member of the Contra Costa County Bar Association's Moderate Means Family Law Panel. Through this program, we offer our family law legal services to a limited number of individuals with a verified low income at a reduced rate.
We never duplicate work, and do not charge for unnecessary consulting among ourselves.
We strongly believe in mediation to resolve disputes. However, we also strongly believe in being aggressive when meditation is not effective due to the level of conflict.
