Affordable Family Law Cases, Is it Possible? Our NEW Maverick Paralegal Services!

NEW!!!! Only in California, we will be offering the most cost effective services utilizing our lowest pricing and costs where we can offer  paralegal technology, under attorney supervision, as at least 75% of litigants in California today, are forced to represent themselves.  This will enable clients who might not be able to afford full legal services, to still obtain document prep and limited help, but not actual courtroom appearances. This is strictly by choice, by the clients themselves.


Legal "leaps" will always require help--don't fail or falter                     because you didn't know how                                                         to obtain the correct help!! 




 We expect to be able to cover family law, some civil cases, cross over cases, higher end small claims and possibly contested evictions.  Additionally, attorney is well versed in animal law cases, having done such cases in both State and Federal Courts (Sacramento, San Diego, Hollywood, Denver, CO, etc.)
Attorney is one of the very, very few that has done many difficult cases ... even working only part time.  One of the only ways to be able to do this is to perform tasks and oversee cases related to paralegal type work which do not require court hearings, traveling, and having to communicate with opposing attorneys. Attorney can do regular legal work of course, but we are attempting to also provide services to those who do not need 100% complete legal services [in other words, the case would not require court litigation to extent of needing a full time attorney on the case..}


Even if helping self represented clients to properly understand the law so that their documents are done properly is better than never getting any help, or just guessing? Many people do lose their cases not so much because of what they did, but because of how they positioned their documents for the court. Judges do not have huge amounts of hours to spend on each case, and most pro se clients have seen this.





Perhaps if you know you have a good case,  you really need help in the document and documentation area. Don't wait too long, try and get help ASAP. You may only be doing "documents" but why lose when perhaps you could have won, had you known what you really should be doing or should have done?  We have done many cases and helped people get what they need!

Winning in Unusual Way! from 2015


In another instance of trial, after cross examining the other party, the opposing counsel suddenly called a recess.

After 7 years of never being able to get a dime out of the ex, who had already filed bankruptcy, my client, having previously used 3 different lawyers, [w/o a good result],  ended up contacting attorney herein --- for trial.
The opposing attorney stopped the trial and offered a combo of about $23,000 combined cash/property $100,000, and attorney fees of $6,000. This likely meant that if they had NOT stopped the trial, my client would had gotten spousal, but we would have had to chase him forever across the USA to get it. Client elected to take the offer. Because attorney herein cornered the ex spouse on the stand for what appeared to be potential bankruptcy fraud, the rest is history......

In another instance, a civil case by a former wife against former husband and girlfriend, the husband  had already been convicted of homicide (and was on appeal, he lost); the case then went to jury on issue on civil liability as to both husband and girlfriend. Keeping in mind husband was already convicted of first degree murder, the jury decided that husband was only 60% at fault in civil case. 

Normally the civil case has much less burden of proof, so finding the husband only 60% and not 100% evidently meant, jury wanted to punish the girlfriend because they took 40% and assigned it-- NOT-- to the husband. This verdict was reported in Verdict Search, a national reporting source for large verdicts nationwide. Counsel representing the girlfriend was from insurance defense firm.

Currently, the former wife has not been able to collect much on the verdict [of millions] after paying fees/costs and it is anticipated she will not be able to collect in the future. Very interesting case, which also involved animals (pet dogs) owned by the husband/son. Son was stabbed when father went to check on condition of dogs; father claims son ran into the knife by lunging forward.

In a very unusual scenario, attorney was substituted into a case with a client who did not reside locally;  a hearing on an issue was set for a date only several days away, at which time attorney believed the hearing could be continued. It seems the hearing was in fact a trial (according to Judge) -- and the client was not present and Judge did not want to continue the issue. Attorney went forward on the issue, with no witness or client. Using only cross examination, Attorney actually won the trial--much to surprise of  witnesses present and including opposing counsel.

This is very uncommon, but imagine how your case might work out if attorney can do this, without even having a client or a witness?

Attorney thinks it's fair to say, you would be in good hands. Especially if other attorneys have failed in the past on your case.

Note: All of these scenarios are actual cases but by no means are such outcomes considered standard. Each case has different facts and various laws which will apply; each case can vary tremendously, and attorney is not representing that such outcomes are common. However, attorney does have a very high percent of cases that settle or result in what the client wanted.
