Let Me Answer All Your Questions

Open, Honest Counsel For Over 40 Years

If you are like many people, the first time you have contact with the legal system is when you face a family law dispute. Adding an unfamiliar legal process on top of powerful emotions can make the situation stressful and very difficult, but you do not have to deal with it on your own. With the guidance of a skilled, understanding attorney, you can transition as smoothly as possible into the next phase of your life, whether you have children at home or not. I can help you go forward on the path that is right for you.

I am Shelley A. Gordon, and I have more than 40 years of legal experience, with over 25 of those years devoted to California family law issues. I have experience working with both traditional and nontraditional families and with men and women. I also have extensive experience resolving matters as a family law mediator.

Some couples have had long relationships, and some brief ones. I serve clients in Northern California, and I do so while applying a few simple principles to every case:

  • That open, honest communication between me and you is the key to a successful outcome
  • That the interests of children are of paramount importance in any family law dispute
  • That courtroom litigation may sometimes be necessary, but methods like mediation and negotiation give clients control, leading to more satisfying outcomes
  • That long-lasting resolutions are preferable to making you return to court repeatedly

Finding The Closure Your Family Deserves

Family law issues can quickly become heated and time-consuming affairs, keeping your family from finding the peace you require to move on with your lives. In my experience, children whose parents have divorced do remarkably better when parents remain cordial. My collaborative and cooperative approach is designed to get your family through the trying time as quickly and in as respectful a manner as possible. When required, I am an aggressive, fair advocate in the courtroom.

My approach to family law issues such as divorce and asset division and spousal support determinations have led to positive outcomes to even the most highly contested issues.
