Board-Certified

Our founders are “Certified Family Law Specialists” – a designation governed by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization. Board Certified lawyers are the only attorneys allowed to publicly represent themselves as specialists or experts in a select area of the law. This designation is reserved for attorneys with the highest public commitment to excellence in their area of practice.

Beginnings

Michelle, Matt, and Neil have practiced exclusively in the field of family law at various Sacramento-area firms. In 2015, Neil and Matt co-founded Forester Purcell Inc., and within a year, Michelle had joined the team to create FORESTER PURCELL STOWELL PC — focused on specialized counsel for complex family law issues.

Bling

FPS attorneys are humbled to be named among their family law community peers on lists such as the Sacramento Business Journal’s Best of the Bar, Sacramento Magazine’s Top Lawyers, and Northern California Super Lawyers.

Once you sign a retainer agreement with our firm, your problems become our problems. We lose sleep worrying about your legal problems while you might just get some rest for the first time in months. Obligations to clients flow from our rules of professional conduct. Legal fees reflect that high level of obligation. Before we agree to representation, we make sure our clients understand all costs and risks involved in a proposed course of action.
