We understand that when people hire an attorney, they are often experiencing a very stressful situation, and need someone who cares about them and doesn't simply go through the motions.
Deborah Manning has been practicing family law since 1994 and serving families in Southern California. With a strong belief that children need both of their parents, cases are structured to preserve civility and cooperation at all stages.
Telephone calls and email inquiries are returned promptly. Documents are prepared correctly and in a timely manner. The goal is to provide guidance and reassurance to all clients as they travel through the family law process.
While this may sound all warm and fuzzy, it is much more than that. Historically, the Courts have been jammed with huge dockets, and court time was hard to get. Now, court dates are nearly non-existent. Once in Court, it is rare to have more than 10 minutes before the Judge. If a case is handled in a hostile and aggressive manner, it may take YEARS to reach complete resolution. Children grow up, bank accounts dwindle, property is lost, and wellbeing is diminished.
No matter who you hire to represent you, or if you represent yourself, understand that the best and fastest way to get through the process is to be civil and cooperative.
