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

I was introduced to family law in January 1994, when I met my mentor who convinced me to try family law. I had a great affinity for this practice from the start.

Lindsey B. Green

I was an intramural referee in college at the University of California at Santa Barbara, as well as a referee for flag football, softball, and baseball. I presided over many fraternity games. Many fraternity brothers thought that cash game was the World Series or the NBA Championships, and I spent a great deal of time focusing on the players, making tough calls and keeping the peace.

I am a very good listener, and my style is to aggressively advocate for my clients, as well as settle cases when it makes absolute sense for my clients.
Personal interests:

I have a wonderful wife and two young children, ages 7 and 9, with whom I spend a great deal of time when not working. I am involved with the Y-Indian Guides with both of my sons, as well as AYSO soccer. In my limited free time, I enjoy playing golf and tennis.
