legal-counselingWhile attending law school in the evening, Ms. Pelayo-Garcia was a Judicial Assistant/Court Clerk for the Los Angeles Superior Court for five years. This practical and intensive hands-on experience gives a greater understanding of the local court system, which in turn provides better representation for her clients. Ms. Pelayo-Garcia believes in providing a comprehensive plan, developed with her clients, to provide for the greater good of the client and her/his family. This is particularly important in the practice of family law, because although it is a civil matter, personal decisions and court rulings may have an enormous effect on an individual’s life.

Beatriz Pelayo-Garcia understands that while this is a legal case to many, to the client – it is his or her life! With this in mind, clients may often be emotional and unclear about their issues regarding a divorce or family law matter. This firm emphasizes a candid and compassionate approach to helping a client understand options at all stages of the family law process to produce the best result for the individual and the entire family.
