California Child Custody Lawyer
The Law Office of Patricia M. McKinnie in San Jose, California, provides legal services in divorce, child custody, and other family law matters. We serve clients who either reside in Santa Clara County or whose spouse or partner resides in Santa Clara County.
Some family law attorneys are in court often and do a lot of litigation over issues like child custody and visitation, child support, spousal support, and property settlement. Our approach seeks to resolve family law cases rather than litigate them. However, our lawyers won't cave in for an unreasonable settlement. To protect your interests, we will proceed to litigation if necessary.
Firm founder Patricia M. McKinnie brings a corporate background to her family law practice. Prior to becoming a lawyer, Ms. McKinnie worked in communications marketing and public relations for a high tech company. Her corporate background helps her understand the issues faced by other high-tech employees, executives, and managers in Silicon Valley, whose community property may include company stock, executive compensation, 401(k) plans, pension plans, and corporate assets.
Silicon Valley is also home to many diverse cultures. We serve many clients who have varying ethnic, family, and cultural values. In addition to explaining California law and how it applies, we often help our clients deal with family issues, since families can be very influential in how you view divorce. Our law firm believes it is important as family law attorneys to have rapport and empathy with our clients as we guide them through the process.
