When a marriage breaks down, the lines of communication between husband and wife are sometimes damaged beyond repair. What one spouse views as the best living arrangement for children or a fair and reasonable property settlement may be viewed as outrageous and unacceptable by the other.

As much as either party or both may wish to avoid a lengthy, costly and painful divorce, resolution of intensely disputed issues through negotiation or mediation is not always possible.

Proven Lawyers for California Family Law Disputes

If you believe that divorce litigation may be the only way to defend your interests and future, your choice of a law firm is absolutely critical. At the Burch Shepard Family Law Group, you can count on representation by attorneys who have built a track record of success in California courtrooms and a widespread reputation for tenacious client advocacy.

A Strong Track Record in Complex, High-Stakes Divorce Cases

Our partners have dedicated their entire professional careers to helping clients achieve their goals in divorce and other family law matters.

As a result, no case is too intensely disputed nor too complex for our law firm, which has clear strengths in:

  • Advocating aggressively for our clients' parental rights to achieve child custody outcomes that serve children's best interests and protect crucial family relationships
  • Building and pursuing comprehensive cases on behalf of clients involved in high net worth divorce cases, including those where a prenuptial agreement pertains, many thousands in monthly spousal support is being sought, hidden assets may be involved or business interests hang in the balance

What To Expect at a Divorce Trial

If your legal matter cannot be resolved through skillful negotiations, your case may go to trial. The trial preparation process is lengthy, involving thorough examinations of the facts of the case and devising an effective strategy to be used in the courtroom. Those going through the trial process deserve to be represented by a skilled and experienced lawyer.

At the Burch Shepard Family Law Group, our attorneys have a successful and proven track record in the courtroom. Our partners — Robert Burch and Courtney Shepard — are graduates of the American Bar Association (ABA) Family Law Trial Advocacy Institute. They dedicate their entire practice to representing high net worth individuals in complex family law matters. We handle a wide range of legal matters, including divorce, complex divorce, child custody, child support, estate planning and family law, and more.

The approach that our lawyers take is one that is highly comprehensive. At trial, you can expect our attorneys to:

  • Educate you about the trial process.
  • Inform you of the timelines involved in trial.
  • Explain who will be involved in trial, and at which stages.
  • Keep you updated about the progress your case is making at trial.

At the Burch Shepard Family Law Group, we are aggressive in the courtroom, yet compassionate when working with our clients. We recognize that every case is unique and requires a tailored approach to finding a favorable resolution. Our lawyers will effectively manage all aspects of your case and strongly advocate for your best interests. While maintaining focus, we will attend to all your legal needs.
