Most family law matters do not end up going to trial, whether the case involves a full-scale divorce or something less involved, like discrete child custody or spousal support issues. But nearly every family law case will be in court at some point, requiring a decision by a judge on an issue large or small.

Presenting your case before a judicial officer can be a daunting experience, even for attorneys. And though we will always work diligently to resolve issues outside of court, we feel very much at home in the courtroom when needed.

Forester Purcell Stowell litigation attorneys have argued successfully in the courts of nearly every County in Northern California, from simple “law and motion” hearings, to multiple day trials requiring the presentation of expert accounting, mental health, and medical testimony. Even after trial, if errors were made by the trial court, we have experience presenting your case to the Court of Appeal.

Litigation and trial work requires skills not every family law practice can offer. Our Certified Family Law Specialists bring the expertise critical to success on behalf of clients, and we embrace the opportunity to obtain the best possible outcome for all parties.
