What makes a good trial attorney?
A good trial attorney not only has a good understanding of the law, but also presents your side in a polite, calm, and yet aggressive manner. It is important to convince the judge of your arguments. The practice of divorce and family law is a people business. Divorce cases are not tried in front of a jury, so if your case does not settle, we will have to present your issues before a judge. A judge is an expert in family law, and your arguments must reflect that fact. As a former senior litigator for a major West Los Angeles law firm, William M. Strachan knows how to effectively present arguments and communicate with a judge.

How can we help you?
