The divorce process is not always an easy one. With guidance and support from an experienced lawyer, you can be sure that your side of the story will be heard and that you have an advocate.
I am attorney Joseph Zoucha and I have more than 35 years of experience representing clients in Redwood City and throughout the nine Bay Area counties. I am very direct when I work with clients and am aggressive in the courtroom. Clients come to my firm because of my proven track record and my legal abilities. I am here for you to help you resolve your legal issue, preserve your family’s dynamic and move forward with the rest of your life.
Regardless of issues, I am committed to help mediate resolvable disputes and to help you work them through the quagmire of the legal system. Unfortunately, given the legal system, even if the situation is as amicable as possible, the system will make you jump through hoops at nearly every opportunity. With an experienced mediator, however, you never have to once take time from work or wait in line at a courthouse. I have had hundreds of clients work with me in the evening, never set foot in court, and efficiently and economically file for divorce. I can handle all paperwork with complete compliance and ensure thoroughness and accuracy.
In mediation, I can act as a neutral third party to help you and your spouse come to an agreement. Mediation leads to a binding judgment without the need to go to court and is a very cost-effective alternative that reduces the animosity of negotiations. In arbitration, I also act as a neutral third party, but in this case work essentially as a judge and the two sides agree beforehand (in writing) to accept my decision. A mediated or arbitrated agreement must be submitted to the court for approval, but in many cases you do not have to appear in a courtroom.
These alternatives help couples:
Because I have worked on family law issues for more than three decades, I have come to the conclusion that this approach is ideal overall. That said, if you cannot pursue this route, I can litigate to aggressively protect your interests.Regardless of issues involved in your divorce, I encourage you to reach out at your earliest convenience.
