San Jose Divorce Lawyer

Divorce can be terribly traumatic for spouses and their children. However, a divorce can be less traumatic if it is handled by an experienced and thoughtful attorney. The attorney you choose to represent you can, in many ways, determine the quality of your life and your family members’ lives, for years into the future.

Divorce, Child Support And Custody Attorney

Serving Santa Clara County, San Jose And Surrounding Communities

At the Law Offices of Andrew G. Marcellino, we have extensive experience helping clients through the divorce process. Andrew Marcellino is a seasoned family law attorney who has led clients through successful trials as well as negotiations and mediations. Retain our law firm, and we can confidentially discuss your circumstances and goals, and help you determine the legal actions that are right for you. Depending on the circumstances and needs of your case, we will strongly pursue your interests in court, or through any negotiations or mediation necessary to resolve your issues of property division, child custody and visitation, child support, alimony (spousal support) and other important matters.

Negotiation As An Alternative To Trial

We are always prepared to go to hearings or trial, but we encourage our clients to resolve their issues through collaborative negotiation when reasonable to do so.
Any settlement, whether achieved through discussions, in negotiations with the help of a Santa Clara County divorce lawyer, or through a mediation process, is bound to be quicker, more cost-effective, and less traumatic than a divorce trial. Clients who are successful in the collaborative process tend to benefit by having a voice in the final decision, as opposed to being bound by whatever order is rendered by the court.
This makes perfect sense, especially if you consider that a divorce judge is usually someone you don’t know, and who may have a different point of view than you do. The idea of taking your spouse to court might seem attractive, but the reality is often an expensive battle that ends badly for everyone involved. This is not always the case, but it is definitely something to consider when hiring an attorney.
​As a former corporate contract negotiator and financial analyst, seasoned attorney Andrew Marcellino has the versatility to represent his divorce clients in complex and changing circumstances. This versatility means that you have a greater opportunity to get what you want and need from your divorce.
