A legal matter such as divorce, a custody issue or post-divorce judgment modification isn't something most people face every day. In fact, most people hope to go a lifetime without ever facing a judge or resolving a tough family law problem. But they are also not the end of the world. If you are facing challenging legal matters, you need an experienced Berkeley, California, Family Law Attorney on your side.
Over 30 Years of Experience Helping Bay Area Families
I am California Family Law Attorney Martin "Jamie" Elmer. I believe that being a good divorce lawyer takes more than just knowing legal procedures and precedents. A good attorney must also be both a good listener and a problem solver. Many people who come to my Berkeley office, in Alameda County, for assistance with their legal problem have never been to an attorney. I understand that. The last thing clients need or deserve is to be intimidated by the receptionist in the front office, the office environment or the attorney scowling from behind the desk. At my Bay Area law firm, I work hard to make sure your experience with the legal system is as stress-free as possible. I maintain a casual, comfortable office in a Victorian building in Berkeley and do everything possible to make you feel welcome — every time you call or walk through the door.
