Child Custody & Family Law Attorney

Custody & Divorce Lawyer in Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Jose, Sacramento, and Surrounding Areas in California

The American model for resolving legal disputes is an adversarial system involving high conflict.  This may protect the interests of business litigants in civil court but tends to ignore the consequences of making a contest over every issue to families in the family law setting.  It encourages otherwise decent people to become obsessed with “winning” often at the expense of everyone involved, resulting in a black hole of vicious, unproductive litigation.

Whether the adversarial system is ideal for resolving family law disputes is a query best left to the philosophers. The more relevant question is how do you reach the end of a family law case without falling prey to the pitfalls of adversarial litigation? There is no one answer to this question, but one solution is having the right family law attorney by your side.  The right attorney can guide you through your family law case, productively reaching settlements outside of court when possible and vigorously advocating for your interests in court when appropriate.
