About our Santa Rosa, CA: office

When you are faced with a divorce, child custody, support or other family law dispute, you need to know your options in order to select an approach that best meets your needs and the needs of your family. Carla is an experienced litigation attorney, but she also knows how to use mediation and the collaborative practice approach to resolve family law issues. Contact her to arrange a confidential consultation.

Carla focuses her practice exclusively on divorce and family law matters. Though she can protect your interests in divorce litigation, she prefers cooperative solutions when possible, such as mediation, negotiation, and the collaborative process. Because Carla understands that every case is unique, she takes the time to get to know her clients as individuals, learning about their goals so that she can craft specific solutions to divorce, child custody, visitation, support and property issues. She emphasizes regular and candid communication, keeping clients informed at all stages of the process.

Carla understands the value of communication and strives to constantly keep clients informed of the status of their cases. Though she has handled divorce trials as well as family law appeals, she prefers to help clients explore whether it is possible to amicably resolve family law matters. She helps parties consider the needs of their families as a whole, so that they do not walk away from a divorce or other family law dispute as enemies. This is especially important when children are involved.

Carla knows from experience that writing is a significant part of a family law practice. The court's decisions are based to a considerable degree on the effectiveness of written documents submitted by counsel. The success of negotiations can often depend on the ability to craft persuasive letters to opposing counsel.

An English major in college, Carla chose the legal profession in part because it allows her to write on a daily basis. She brings a passion for writing to her practice and thrives on drafting effective written communications that help clients accomplish their family law objectives.

      Carla is a diligent advocate for her clients, and is also very responsive and cooperative with opposing counsel. I frequently refer family law cases to her when my firm has a conflict.
