Fast. Fair. Thorough.

Firm Overview

Family law matters have deeply personal and life-long implications for every individual associated with them. At Cullen & Murphy, we represent family members at a time of turmoil and high emotional stress. We see our role as that of a guide, helping our clients through the legal steps in a difficult and usually painful process. We offer high-quality personal legal representation in cases of divorce and legal separation, including for domestic partnerships, and all associated matters such as property division, child custody, and child and spousal support. For more information about our firm and our family law practice, contact our Riverside or Temecula law office.

Our firm utilizes the services of our skilled legal team, including staff attorneys, paralegals and researchers. By utilizing different staff sources, we are able to keep your costs reasonable and speed up the resolution of your case. Additionally, we have the support of a sophisticated computerized case and records management system, which also reduces client costs.

Our work is fast, fair and thorough. We seek to reduce the financial and emotional toll of divorce, termination of domestic partnerships, legal separation and child custody proceedings through out-of-court settlements when possible. An out-of-court settlement is usually in your best interests because it limits expenses and the stress connected with attending court. However, in some cases, court is necessary. Nevertheless, we will provide strong advocacy on your behalf at every stage, up to and including trial.

Strong Advocacy For Clients In Settlement Discussions And At Trial

Additionally, our office is experienced in representing clients who do not reside locally and cannot always appear personally to handle each issue of their family law matter. In those cases, we enable our out-of-area clients to maintain an effective case while remaining in their home area by using telephone, fax, email and overnight mail to communicate and resolve issues. Further, it is common for our out-of-area clients to appear by telephone in a family law hearing while an attorney from our firm appears in person to represent the party’s interest. If this is an option that you are interested in, please discuss it with one of our attorneys during your consultation.

Throughout our representation, we will take the time to get to know you, understand your unique set of circumstances, help you identify your goals and offer sound legal advice with regard to your best options. We invite you to contact our Riverside or Temecula office today to discuss your concerns.
