But when things get tough, you want someone on your side who knows the system and can get results. From emergency hearings to long-term strategies, Simpson | Cawelti LLP provides both aggressive performance and thoughtful insights to resolve issues for you.

Ever get the feeling you're being ignored by your attorney? Not here. We take many cases in the middle of litigation. Our attorneys work hard to solve problems, no matter the state of your case. Divorce is hard enough already; you shouldn't be unhappy with your attorney, too.

Why fight if you don't have to? In this economy, everyone is looking for ways to save money. Family law is no exception, and that is why Simpson | Cawelti LLP also specializes in mediation. Even if you and your spouse or partner don't agree on everything, mediation can still be effective for both of you. Call us for a consultation to see if mediation is right for you.

At Simpson | Cawelti LLP, we know how to settle cases. A court trial rarely makes sense when settlement is an option. The vast majority of our cases settle through private judicial mediation, avoiding trial altogether. We provide our clients with the tools and legal advice to evaluate and make smart settlement decisions.

Sometimes one spouse engages in financial transactions without the knowledge of the other spouse, either during the marriage or after a separation. When this type of conduct benefits one spouse and not the other, a breach of fiduciary duty may have occurred. This relatively new area of family law, including a duty to disclose income, assets and financial transactions, can sometimes provide relief to spouses who may have been in the dark about the other spouse's handling of family finances. Tom Simpson won his client the highest verdict in Los Angeles County history for a breach of fiduciary duty case, in the amount of over $3,000,000. Give us a call to make an appointment to discuss the specific facts of your case.

Whether you are just starting to think about a family law matter, or you're about to go to trial, we can help get you through it. Contact a Glendale divorce lawyer at Simpson | Cawelti LLP today!
