Practice Areas

Matthew J. Long  believes that couples should be in charge of their own divorce.  With over 28 years of experience in the courtroom, he knows that when you decide to battle it out in court, you are essentially putting your fate in the hands of a judge.  The experience typically involves a massive amount of unnecesary paperwork, large amounts of time and money, high stress and emotional scarring.  And it is rare for either of the parties to feel good about themselves or the process in the end.

This is why Matthew decided to put down the gloves and focus his law practice exclusively on Divorce Mediation and Collaborative Divorce for clients in the state of California. He is considered one of the area leaders.

For those living both in and out of California, Matthew offers Divorce Coaching services.

If you are facing a divorce, child custody and visitation, spousal support, child support, property division, legal separation, pre-nuptial agreements or QDROs, we are available to provide excellent legal guidance to you.

If you have questions or needs with respect to Estate Planning in the areas of probate, wills, trusts, trust administration, health care directives or power of attorney, we can assist you effectively and efficiently.

You will find more information about each of these practice areas throughout our website.  Welcome!
