Practice Areas


Are you struggling to make time to address your marital problems? Are you frustrated trying to figure out what your rights are in a custody situation? Let an experienced divorce attorney help.

Family Law

Going through a divorce is unpleasant and always influences all aspects of a person’s life. Educate yourself about the process and the steps involved, and then contact an attorney.

Child Custody

Courts have discretion in deciding with whom children will live, but they are guided by two crucial factors: maintaining the status quo and continuing contact with both parents for minor children.

Alimony/Spousal Support

It’s generally better to resolve family law matters collaboratively. However, if you anticipate a dispute over support or any other matter that will require a trial, work with a skilled attorney.

Business Owners & Divorce

In addition to problems between spouses who own a business together, there can be problems for third parties involved. These can have complex and long-lasting effects on the business.

Complex Property Division

Many people know California is a community property state and that the parties share equally in the community property, but they do not understand the ramifications. Learn more from our team.

Accessible, Experienced & Assertive Legal Counsel

Galen covers all aspects of family law - from divorces and child custody cases to restraining orders. He understands that going through a divorce is usually unpleasant and influences all aspects of a person’s life. It's importance can never be underestimated. If you have anything worth preserving you should educate yourself about the process. When you have questions, you need an attorney who will return your phone calls promptly.

While most family cases settle, some go to trial.

An experienced attorney who has handled complex factual disputes is required. Many divorce attorneys have never gone to trial (or have never tried a case) and will not be prepared if your case requires a trial. Galen takes the time to understand your needs and your goals. With over 25 years of experience, Galen knows when to negotiate, knows what is a fair settlement and knows when it is necessary to take your case to trial to ensure the best outcome.
