Firm: Law Offices of Beatrice L. Snider, APC
The Law Offices of Beatrice L. Snider began in 1974 as a one-attorney office in San Diego. After the Family Law Act of 1970, it became obvious to Ms. Snider that the handling of a family law matter required lawyers with highly specialized skills. Family law encompasses not only the dissolution, custody, support and property division aspect of law but often requires the lawyer to cross over into other areas of the law including civil, corporate, business, tax, bankruptcy, pensions, etc. This need, coupled with the passion to affect positive change in a person's life during a difficult and dramatic time, resulted in Ms. Snider building a law firm to fill that need.
The firm has grown and currently has over thirty skilled staff on the team. The attorneys on the staff are dedicated exclusively to family law issues such as divorce, property distribution, spousal support, child support, custody and visitation issues, grandparent guardianship and visitation issues, pre-nuptial agreements, post-nuptial agreements, legal separation agreements, same-sex issues and cohabitation agreements. Five of the attorneys hold State Board Certification in Family Law.
The firm has been in its current location since 1987. The firm chose this mid-county location based on the comfortable surroundings, accessibility to all family law courts, easy parking as well as easy access for the firm's clientele located throughout San Diego County and bordering counties.
The firm prides itself on having the depth of staff to provide a team with all the experience and expertise that is necessary for your particular case. This office has handled some of the most sophisticated and complex family law cases in San Diego as well as the simplest. We strive to handle all your family law needs with expertise and compassion.
