When your family is experiencing significant changes, you need to be well-informed and empowered to make decisions regarding your future. This can be challenging when you do not have the resources you need and there are a variety of options in front of you. From my office - the Law Office of Amy L. Stavis - I provide legal representation to individuals throughout Santa Clara County, California. I have 21 years of experience as a family law attorney and I handle cases involving divorce, child custody, visitation/timeshare, child support, spousal support, paternity, restraining orders, prenuptial Agreements, post-divorce modifications, and a wide range of other family law issues. I have been practicing law since 1997 and have always taken a special interest in the needs of my clients. I balance my representation between achieving my clients' short-term needs and helping them evaluate their long-term goals. I customize my legal services for each individual case. While I sometimes suggest that my clients pursue mediation when it is an option, I most certainly can be a strong advocate for my clients in the courtroom and in private negotiations as well. I put my heart into my cases as I attempt to further my clients' best interests, with the goal of reaching a fair and reasonable settlement, without unnecessarily incurring substantial fees and costs.
