Resolving Family Matters With Compassion And Efficiency

Protecting Your Family Rights

As a certified family law specialist with over 25 years of experience, attorney George R. Horrigan is a trusted resource in Bakersfield for a comprehensive range of family law issues. We are well-known and respected in this community. In fact, many of our clients are referrals. That says a lot about how our peers regard us.

We guide clients through all aspects of divorce, including child custody and visitation, child support, alimony and property division. Our advocacy also continues after divorce if clients need to seek a post-judgment modification of their support obligations. We also assist with additional family law issues such as annulment, domestic violence, guardianship and paternity.

An Eye On Your Bottom Line

We understand that family law issues can be emotionally taxing. That's why our advocacy extends outside of the courtroom. Our starting point is often mediation or informal negotiations. If we reach agreements on one or more of the issues that must be resolved, we will have saved you time, additional emotional upset and money.

An Experienced Trial Advocate

Sometimes, the parties may require the court to be the decision-maker because they are too close to an issue to reach an agreement. We have over 25 years of experience in preparing cases for court. If aggressive divorce litigation is required, we know how to prepare a strong narrative, persuasive evidence and prepare our witnesses. We are thoroughly familiar not only with California's family laws, but also the local courts and judges. We utilize that knowledge to tailor our strategy to the specific forum.
