Our Approach to Divorce: 
We take a comprehensive approach to divorce, ensuring that all of your concerns are addressed and that both immediate and future needs are met. We seek solutions that minimize the potential damage of an extended legal dispute and the costs of divorce court. For many people, mediation is a good alternative to resolving divorce issues in court. We have helped many clients build agreements through mediation or out-of-court settlement and will strive to do the same for you.

Mr. Coetzee has many years of experience bringing divorce cases to family court in Northern California, including those involving complex property division, family owned businesses, or hidden assets. When needed, our firm can work with investigators and forensic accountants to trace hidden assets to ensure property is accounted for and fairly divided.
