Our family law department at LPS is unique to the Bay Area in that it operates within a sophisticated full-service civil law firm. Thus, LPS’s family law attorneys have ready access to a breadth of legal resources in virtually all legal areas that might touch upon complex financial family law matters.
A Wide Range of Services from Our Trained Family Law Attorneys
The family law department provides services covering all aspects of marital dissolution and child custody law, including prenuptial agreements and postmarital agreements, cohabitation agreements, divorce proceedings, alternative dispute resolution proceedings, and post-judgment and appellate matters. We settle more than 90 percent of our cases before trial. Our family law attorneys are trained in and devote part of their practices to collaborative law procedures and techniques. We assist parties within a wide range of financial circumstances, but with a special emphasis on representing high-income individuals (and their spouses) and those with large and complex estates. We have extensive experience dealing with the interrelation between business matters and family law, including the valuation of businesses and the analysis of complicated compensation and investment structures, and their tax consequences.
Our family law clients include partners of many of the large San Francisco law firms, investment bankers and principals of investment, venture capital, and consulting firms, business owners ranging from restaurateurs to those owning and operating international corporations and holding companies, physicians, real estate syndicators, and the spouses of the foregoing.
