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

I was initially started doing criminal law cases. It can be interesting, but the other side was always the same old District Attorneys Office with the same old offers and same old tired strategies.

After about five years, some of my criminal clients asked me to help them with their problems in family court. I was then an associate for two years with the Law Office of Joe Gamez handling a large volume of family law cases.

As I started taking in more family law matters, I realized I was able to apply my advocacy, writing, and negotiating skills in drafting pleadings, negotiating with other private attorneys, making frequent courtroom appearances, and engaging in mediation. Perhaps, what I like most with family law cases are the different attorneys I will have the opportunity to work alongside and the different shifts and trajectories a family case will take from time to time.

As I delivered quality legal services to my clients, my clients would call me again or refer my name to their friends and family. Overtime, family law cases started to become my dominant practice area.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others

With Each Case I Quickly Understood What Leo Tolstoy's Really Meant When He Said, "All happy families resemble one another, each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way."

I realized that all too often clients in family litigation are treated the same way without understanding to their unique circumstances and relationships.

All too often family law cases are handled uncreatively with pedestrian looking orders. Some attorneys would just rather roll-over because it just easier to do that than actually fight for their client.

When I represent clients in a family law case, I am aware families come from diverse backgrounds, life experiences, and inherent personality quirks. As a family law attorney, I try to channel those unique traits, comprising of the good and bad things, about my clients to make the most persuasive legal case to obtain the most optimal resolution that will take care of short term family issues and long term realities as they unfold.

I am committed to protecting parents and children during the battle of divorce, property division and custody disputes with the goal of the client leaving my office better than when he or she arrive

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Because I have been married to my wife for seven years, and have three children, I strongly believe I have good insight on marriages, martial relationships, and how to raise children correctly.


Also, as a litigator handling consumer disputes, collection matters, and getting settlements against large national companies, I know how to protect individuals from debts, protect property, and litigate cases to trial.
