Summary

Jennifer is certified as a Family Law Specialist by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization. She earned a B.A. in Law and Society from the University of California at Santa Barbara and her law degree from Santa Clara University. Jennifer is a member of the Association of Certified Family Law Specialists, and member of the Santa Clara County Bar Association and is a member of the Family Law Executive Committee of the Santa Clara County Bar Association. Jennifer has lectured at multiple seminars for the Santa Clara County Bar Association, and Santa Clara University School of Law, and also serves as Judge Pro Tem for the Santa Clara County Superior Court.

Since becoming exclusively a family law attorney in 2000, Jennifer has acted both as litigator and mediator. She has successfully handled a variety of complex family law cases involving domestic violence, child custody/visitation, child support, spousal support/alimony, financial property, and divorce. She also handles other areas of family law, including paternity, postnuptial agreements, prenuptial agreements, annulment, legal separation, and stepparent adoptions and mediation. Dealing with real people, helping them solve their problems, and making a real difference in their lives and the lives of their families is important to her.

Jennifer’s interest and exposure to family law was sparked at the age of 15 when her own parents filed for divorce. She later joined her high school’s mock trial team, acting as team prosecutor, which cemented her dream to become a litigating attorney. Jennifer understands the stress and problems that can arise when dealing with the legal process in the area of family law —for both parents and children. As a family law attorney, she wants to make sure that her clients have the tools, information, and options that they need to successfully deal with their family matter.
