Oakland and Alameda Family Law Attorney

Know Your Rights; Seek Legal Counsel

Divorces, child custody disputes and other family law matters can be challenging, emotional and life-changing experiences that involve your property, finances and children. In these matters, you need to understand your legal rights. Your first step should be to obtain the advice and counsel of an experienced family law attorney.

For experienced and effective representation, contact attorney Michael Finein, of the Law Offices of Michael E. Finein. Based in Oakland, California, my law firm represents clients throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, including Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco and San Mateo counties. I assist clients with a broad range of family law concerns, including:

Experienced, Compassionate, Effective Representation

Family law matters are often highly stressful because they involve significant changes in your life and highly personal issues, as well as your financial well-being and your children. You need to be prepared and informed to protect your interests and rights. As a knowledgeable and compassionate lawyer, I know how to address your questions and concerns in order to help ease your anxiety and protect your rights. Contacting my firm is the first step.

With more than 12 years of experience, I am prepared to assist with even the most complex family law concerns. During law school, I focused on becoming a litigator through coursework, interning and working at law firms. When I became an attorney, I worked for a small law firm with a comprehensive practice and handled criminal, civil, immigration and bankruptcy cases, as well as family law matters. My experience in family law made it clear to me that I wanted to focus solely on family law. I truly enjoy helping my clients, representing their interests and protecting their rights.

After helping with hundreds of divorce and family law cases, I have found that no two are the same. My first step will be to meet with you to understand your unique circumstances in order to determine the best possible options for your case.

My preference is to try to work with the other attorney in an effort to minimize the inherent conflict and hostility, as well as the costs, to reach an equitable resolution in your case. This is not always possible, and when necessary I will aggressively pursue your rights in court. My ultimate goal is to obtain the results you want at a reasonable cost.
