Stockdale Law Firm Opens Second Office

By on July 1, 2016 | Category: Blog | Tags: , , , |

Stockdale Law Firm is excited to announce the opening of our second office! The new location is just minutes from the Bill Santucci Justice Center in Roseville, CA. This new addition to the firm will serve as a partner to our current El Dorado Hills location. The new office opens on July 1, 2016 and is located at 915 Highland Pointe Drive, Suite 250, Roseville, California, 95678: Phone (916) 724-5200.

The firm chose to open our second office in Roseville because we have a passion for helping Northern California clients especially those in the Sierra Nevada Foothills. By opening a second office, we are able to reach out to those in need in Placer and Nevada Counties. Also, we are able to provide a closer location for meeting with our current clients who live closer to I-80 and Hwy 65.

In addition to serving more foothill clients, we chose Placer County because it has a reputation for having a well-organized and well-managed Family Law Division. As our aim is always the successful outcome of our cases, Placer County was an easy choice for our expansion.

In addition to having the new Roseville office, we have expanded our practice to include cases in Nevada County. The firm will now handle all family law issues in Nevada County including: divorce, legal separation, custody and visitation, child and spousal support, step-parent and family member adoptions, guardianships and domestic violence. In the coming months, we will also offer attorney mediation from our gifted Associate Attorney, Amber White.

This truly has been an exciting year for our firm. In September 2015, Rebecca Esty-Burke CFLS purchased the firm, bringing with her 11 years of excellent experience and expertise in both litigation and settlement negotiations. She also hired Paralegal Jasmine Emick as the Front Desk Legal Secretary. We have a solid 50 years of combined legal experience among our team members. Additionally, the firm expanded our practice to include cases in Del Norte County. This brings the total to nine counties in which we currently practice, which include: El Dorado, Sacramento, Placer, Amador, Nevada, San Joaquin, and Yolo.

We have many more exciting changes coming up in the next year. So please stay connected with us through Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. If you would like a consultation with one of our attorneys, please call us at (916) 933-5545 or (916) 724-5200. You can email us at info@stockdalelawfirm.com. Be certain to ask about one of our specials or if we take your legal insurance.

Love Lives: Myrlys Stockdale Officiates Wedding Ceremony

By on June 27, 2014 | Category: Blog |

Managing Attorney Myrlys Stockdale officiated over her first wedding on June 21, 2014 in Roseville. California Family Code sections 420 to 426 set forth the requirements for couples who wish to be married by a friend or family member.

In California, there is no particular format required for the marriage ceremony (or the solemnization of the marriage). However, California requires that each party, in the presence of the wedding officiant and other witnesses, declare that they each take the other to be their spouse.

“When the bride asked if I could perform her wedding ceremony, I was unaware of the procedural requirements so I did my research, became ordained and was looking forward to the wedding,” said Stockdale.

Stockdale, who handles both prenuptial cases and divorce cases explained that “performing the wedding ceremony was such an uplifting experience, as newlyweds are so excited, hopeful and looking forward to planning their life together.”

Best wishes and congratulations to Ryan and Ronlyn George!

Please contact Stockdale Law Firm, Inc. if you are interested in having Ms. Stockdale officiate at your wedding.
