I was fortunate to find my passion for family law at an early age and decided to dedicate my legal education and career to this challenging, yet rewarding niche field, where I help individuals and families navigate a range of stressful and complex legal (and emotional) challenges. I believe in providing empathetic, caring, and logical assistance to all of my clients, who I know are in need of support during a difficult and confusing time. I joined Law Offices of Deborah Dubroff after several years with one of the Bay Area's largest family law firms located in the Silicon Valley. As a result of my expertise, I am acutely aware of the multifaceted issues that can arise throughout a family law matter. I approach each client’s case with a caring and clear action plan tailored to their specific needs. I am a member of the Family Law Sections of Alameda County, Contra Costa County, San Francisco County, and the California State Bar. I’m a member of the Alameda County Family Law Association and I also volunteer in the courts assisting self-represented litigants.
I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Arizona State University and received my law degree from Northeastern University School of Law in Boston, Massachusetts. While in law school, I was a staff member for the Law Journal and an active member in the Northeastern Family Law Society. My early passion for family law led me to a clerkship with the Honorable Spencer Kagan of the Middlesex County Family Court in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Following my clerkship, I was a student attorney representing victims of domestic violence through Greater Boston Legal Services’ Family Law Unit and a law clerk for Kauffman Crozier, LLP, a well respected, progressive family law firm in the Boston area. As a California native, I returned to the Bay Area in 2011 to further my legal career in my beloved home state.
In my free time, you can find me cheering for the many Bay Area sports teams, staying active in spin class or hiking the hills of Marin County, experimenting in the kitchen with a glass of wine in hand, and spending time with the newest addition to my extended family, my adorable nephew.
