Our Compassionate Legal Team Helps You Protect Your Rights & Lay A Good Future Foundation For Your Family In The Midst Of Turmoil.
When a family issue intersects with the law, things can become very complicated and very emotional, very quickly. The way that the family issue gets resolved can permanently affect your closest, deepest relationships, as well as your financial situation and your ability to provide for your family. For this reason, family law is delicate. It’s not like other types of legal disputes, where there are clear “winners”; in family law, especially if conflict is intense, it can often feel like there’s no winning outcome. Because of how personal your case may be, and because the stakes are so high, you need to work with our compassionate, knowledgeable Thousand Oaks family law attorneys who can guide you through the process and help you achieve the best results possible.

Whether you are going through a divorce, fighting for custody, getting married and wanting a prenuptial agreement, seeking alimony payments, modifying child support or something else, we can help you understand your options and work towards your desired outcome. Our lawyers will take the time to listen to your story, get to know your goals and family dynamics, and answer your questions. You can count on us to protect your rights at every stage of the process. Call today to schedule a consultation and learn more about how we can help you through this challenging time!
We Handle Divorce, Custody, & More. Our Thousand Oaks Family Law Attorneys Have A Multidisciplinary Background That Can Give You A Legal Advantage.
In addition to handling family law cases, our attorneys are also well-versed in estate planning law, bankruptcy law, and many other types of law. This gives us a well-rounded perspective on divorce, custody, alimony, spousal support, prenuptial agreements, and more. If property division or tax issues are involved, or if you need to create or update your will and trust strategy based on the outcome of your case, we can give you practical information and advice that will give you peace of mind. While we always attempt to take a collaborative approach to family law cases, because that’s easier on children and everyone involved, we are also skilled litigators - we will be able to aggressively defend your best interests in court if the situation turns hostile.
Types Of Family Law Cases We Focus On
Divorce (Contested & Uncontested)
Divorce is one of the most difficult life transitions you can go through - legally, emotionally, relationally, and financially. Having quality legal representation on your side can simplify the process and give you confidence that you’re making the best choices for your future and the future of your family! We can protect your rights and ensure a fair outcome in cases where spouses agree on most issues and in cases where spouses cannot work together.
Divorce terms may be set at the conclusion of proceedings, but they’re not final. Life after divorce can be full of changes for both parties. If a spouse gets remarried, has new children, changes careers, moves, or something else happens that would significantly impact the terms of the divorce, a change in the agreement or a modification of support may arise. Our team can help you seek a modification or challenge one!
Determining what happens to children is always the toughest part of any divorce or separation. It’s a responsible parent’s right to see and have a relationship with their child, and to make decisions that impact their lives….but it can be hard for parents to agree on who gets more time with the children and who has more decision-making power. Custody battles can often become bitter and contentious, even if they start amicably, which is why we guard your parental rights and advise you on which custody arrangement may be best for your unique situation!
Child support is awarded in order to ensure that children of divorce or separation have the financial backing that they need to thrive. Each parent may need to pay support, but how much each parent pays can affect the financial stability of themselves and their kids. Our Thousand Oaks family law attorneys help enforce or challenge child support arrangements!
Spousal support, also known as alimony, is a certain amount of money that courts can order a higher-earning spouse to pay to their lower-earning spouse following a divorce or legal separation. Spousal support is awarded with the intention of keeping the split financially fair, but how it is awarded can be subjective. How much you pay or receive in spousal support can affect your financial well-being so our lawyers work to ensure that your rights are protected!
Every engaged couple should make a prenuptial agreement - not because every marriage is doomed to fail, but because having important conversations and clear expectations about marital finances can actually help a marriage be more likely to succeed! We can help couples understand their options and draft effective pre or postnuptial agreements.

Thousand Oaks has a reputation of being a “quiet, relaxed, and upscale community” located just north of L.A. in Ventura County, but just because things seem peaceful here doesn’t mean that families don’t fight or separate at the same rate that they do in the rest of the country, or that cases don’t involve the same level of conflict. Particularly because families in Thousand Oaks may have sizable assets or business interests to divide, cases in this area may be even harder to resolve, which is why hiring an experienced law firm to represent you is the wisest choice you can make! Request a consultation with our Thousand Oaks family law attorneys today to get started.

When I contacted and asked the attorney for some advice, I immediately felt a great sense of unconditional support, and found the office environment to be very peaceful with a very professional front desk and staff. I appreciate all his help and heartwarming support. Thank you so much.
We were fortunate enough to get in contact with the attorneys: we had a water leak in our house and homeowner insurance was not helpful. From the moment we met with Russell, we knew right away that we are in good hands. He took his time to go with us over the issues that we had with insurance. He was very understanding and patient, every week he gave us updates on the progress, show us that he really cares about our situation. He went above and beyond to make sure that we will get full compensation. We are very grateful for what he has done for us. He did an amazing job!!! I would definitely recommend this law firm to anyone in need.
I can’t put into words how grateful I am to have been referred to this amazing firm. I have had an issue haunting me for so long and today the attorney gave me my first sigh of relief in years! He was completely present throughout our entire conversation and I truly felt that he genuinely cared. He went out of his way to provide valuable information and made sure to answer all the questions I had. I’d definitely recommend them to anyone looking for genuine, and professional attorneys!
