Firm Overview

I established the Law Office of Jesus Zuniga in 2000 in Lancaster as a divorce lawyer solo operation. Prior to that, I worked for another divorce attorney. I never liked working for big firms. As a solo practitioner, I can offer clients more flexibility and solutions tailored to their divorce and related family law matters.

Our Lancaster, California divorce lawyers handle all aspects of family law and related matters, both simple and complex. Our divorce lawyers also provide other services to our clients, including wills, trusts, and probate work.

Example cases

I've opposed numerous ex-parte or emergency cases where the other party's attorney sought an emergency change in custody without merit. The attorneys were counting on my clients not being able to afford an attorney and thus gain an advantage. I was able to take such cases on short notice and was victorious in all of them.

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

I enjoy the close attorney-client interaction and communication that is an integral part of family law cases.

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

I encourage clients to educate themselves. However, I strongly encourage the client to at least talk to three attorneys in addition to whatever other resources the client is using.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I am happy to review documents prepared by clients.

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

I am willing to prepare clients to attend court on their own. At our Lancaster, California divorce attorneys' office, we offer full representation as well as limited scope representation for divorce, family law, probate, and other related matters.

Jesus Zuniga

My previous employment includes working as an attorney in a different divorce and family law firm.

I have worked with a diverse client base and dealt often with recurring family law issues. For a period of seven years, I dealt almost exclusively in family law matters.

I am familiar with the family law court and judges. I am able to save our clients time and money and to resolve their cases efficiently. I am compassionate, approachable, and open-minded.

Personal interests:

I am an amateur writer and an avid reader. I also enjoy playing basketball and watching CSI, Law and Order, and other law-related shows. I enjoy spending time with my family and close friends.
