Helping You Through Your Divorce

Divorce is one of the most difficult situations a family can go through. Not only is it a time of emotional turmoil for the spouses, but the children become equally upset over the changes to their life. As Pasadena family law attorneys, we are dedicated to helping families get through this trying experience with as little upset and stress as possible.

We are passionate about fighting for you and your family's needs as you go through divorce. We are committed to discussing your case in full so as to completely understand your goals for the different aspects of the divorce. It is always our goal to attempt amicable resolution of family issues whenever possible. We strive to avoid the emotional stress that animosity between spouses can create, in addition to the added cost of litigation. Nevertheless, when it becomes unlikely that a resolution will be reached, we will aggressively represent you and your children's interests in court in order to achieve the best results for your family.

About Pasadena

Pasadena was once home to a Native American tribe known as the Hahamogna. The Spaniards took control of the land in later years, and after that, the area became part of Mexico until California joined the United States in 1850. Pasadena incorporated in 1886. Today, Pasadena has grown into one the most well-known cities in the Los Angeles metropolitan area. It has a population of 142,017. The city is best known as home to the Rose Bowl, Tournament of Roses, the California Institute of Technology, and the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Other notable sites to visit in Pasadena include the Colorado Street Bridge, Pasadena Playhouse, and Vroman’s, which is Southern California’s oldest and largest independent bookstore.
