The Law Offices of Ethan M. Weisinger, Inc.

We created The Law Offices of Ethan M. Weisinger, Inc with the express purpose of offering clients with solutions to their family law problems.

Firm Overview

Our divorce lawyers at The Law Offices of Ethan M. Weisinger, Inc are motivated by helping clients through the most difficult times in their lives. We strive to do what is best for you and your family.

Our team consists of highly skilled litigators with the prowess to effectuate settlement whenever possible to minimize any financial or untimely straining from unnecessary court battles. We pride ourselves on liberating our clients from the chaos of divorce and back into moving forward with their lives with a rediscovered sense of peace.

We know that nothing is more important to you than safeguarding the wellbeing of your children. As child custody specialists, we are here to protect your family dynamic and aggressively do all that is needed to ensure that you get a proper timeshare with your children. We specialize in helping clients prepare for Family Court Services Mediation. We know the Child Custody Recommending Counselors as well as the County Judges. We are here to zealously fight for our clients in order to get their children out of difficult situations and back into stable environments.

Our family law attorneys are also child support specialists. Our team has the knowledge, experience and prowess to aggressively represent our clients in any child support matter. The Department of Child Support Services works with our attorneys to guarantee that our clients get a fair result. We accommodate our clients by presenting a compelling case to achieve the proper level of child support.

Our spousal support attorneys specialize in working with the often-misconstrued Family Code Section 4320 factors. During litigation, we use Dissomaster to calculate the proper level of spousal support. However, at the time of a Divorce Judgment we shift our focus towards presenting a solid case for our clients to demand that the right amount of support is paid. This is a complex issue with many layers, and we are a team with the experience level and tenacity that you will need in your corner.

Our Walnut Creek divorce attorneys also specialize in dissolution of same-sex marriages. We support the LGBT community and have affiliations with Lambda Legal and the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR). Today there is no such thing as gay divorce. Thanks to the California Legislature, there is only divorce. Nevertheless, it is often important to have an attorney who knows how to help litigate the issues unique to the LGBT community. Our attorneys diligently stay up-to-date on the ever-changing laws for the LGBT community and we are prepared to help you and your family get through the divorce process or dissolving your domestic partnership.

Our attorneys are Certified as Family Law Specialists by the California State Bar Association. We are also recommended by the Better Business Bureau, by Avvo.com, and are peer-endorsed by family law attorneys in the East Bay Area.

Here at the Law Offices of Ethan M Weisinger, your family comes first.
