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.

10 Years Ago This Week

By on March 11, 2013 | Category: Blog | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

It was 10 years ago that I obtained a business license for a law practice.

So much happened in my life which was the impetus for beginning this law firm. There were plenty of challenges, but I truly believe challenges are opportunities for success.

My opportunities began when I divorced in 1993, single mom with a 5 and 3 year old. It was an acrimonious divorce, with years of nasty custody and support litigation that took a toll on my children as well as myself. I wanted to create a better life for the kids and myself and I went to law school at night, while working during the day. Some days were 18 or more hour days in light of the distance from home to work and school.

New Law: Teenagers Testifying in Custody Matters

By on January 3, 2012 | Category: Blog | Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

This week (January 1, 2012 to be exact) marks the effective date of a new law allowing children 14 years or older to provide input on custody or visitation matters in family court.

Specifically, the amendments to Family Code Section 3042 provide that the 14 or older child “shall be permitted” to address the court unless the judge determines that doing so would not be in the child’s best interest.

There has been a great deal of discussion in the family law community about whether the potential benefit of child testimony outweighs the potential detriment to the child and the parent/child relationship. Read more …
