Law Office of Cherie D'Arcy

Firm Overview

The Law Office of Cherie D'Arcy focus is on aggressive effective client representation. I offer the personal touch in that I deal directly with all my clients.

Example cases

Due to the sensitive nature of client's matters and attorney client information, I feel it would be inappropriate for me to list specific case examples here. We live in a small community and often, even without giving out specific names, people recognize events. I hope you understand. That being said, I have litigated successfully in hundreds of cases. My goal in bankruptcy cases, is to ensure that we don't have litigation. My goal in family law cases is to minimize the litigation to the extent possible. I am usually successful in meeting those goals.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I initially went into the legal field in the area of family law and child welfare. However, I found that many of my family law clients also had financial difficulties and were in need of assistance with bankruptcy. This drove me to educate myself in that area so that I could provide my clients the assistance they needed. I found there to be a great need in our local community for good bankruptcy attorneys and have devoted myself to serving those clients as well.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

I support clients educating themselves regarding legal issues. I always educate myself in other areas of my life that I utilize experts in (i.e. veterinary, medical). I hope that each of my clients will do the same and be an active educated participant in their matter. I am happy to assist my clients in understanding the legal issues they are involved in.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I am always willing to review documents prepared by clients.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

I am willing to coach, to the extent possible, clients who want to represent themselves.

Cherie D'Arcy

Law Office of Cherie D'Arcy was established in 1996. Since then I have been serving clients in primarily dissolution and bankruptcy matters.

I have been self-employed since 1996. Prior to that I worked full times for various attorneys and other jobs while I was putting myself through college and law school.

I have had my own experience with the legal system where I felt that the lawyers didn't educate their clients well with respect to their options. I always work to ensure clients understand their options and that their choices drive the case to a certain extent.

I am effective at working through the legal process with a minimum of animosity. I encourage people to settle cases, because that is typically what is best. However, when the needs arise, my strengths lie in the litigation.

Personal interests:

I have a passion for serving my community and for animals. I brought those things together many years ago by joining Search and Rescue and becoming a certified canine handler. I have searched for missing people all over California and Western Nevada over the past 14 years. I have also been a member of my community volunteer Fire Department for nearly 10 years. My husband and I enjoy our ranch and are currently building a boarding and training facility for dogs.
