Margaret is an Associate Attorney, who has extensive experience in all aspects of family law litigation, including complex child custody issues, valuation and division of assets including equities, real property and businesses, assessment of child and spousal support, and tracing of separate property reimbursement claims. In addition to handling complex litigation matters, she serves clients as a consulting attorney in their mediated cases.
Prior to joining Oleander Law Partners, Margaret worked for several years at a family law firm in Menlo Park, CA, representing high net-worth individuals in their dissolution matters. Earlier in her career, Margaret worked as an Associate Attorney in the environmental department of a civil litigation defense law firm in Orange County, litigating products liability/exposure cases. Her civil litigation background has given Margaret a strong foundation and advantage in handling discovery disputes and law and motion practice. Margaret is also highly skilled at settlement, finding that the best outcomes are usually those that are obtained outside of court. Therefore, she seeks to explore all reasonable settlement options, where and when possible.
