OUR TEAM

If you are facing a divorce, you need an experienced and intelligent lawyer who provides not only for your legal needs but helps you address practical, non-legal aspects of your case as well.

 

When your relationship with your spouse or partner is coming to an end, you are facing one of the most difficult times of your life, both financially and emotionally. Your future and the future of your children may appear uncertain, and your ability to cope with all of your daily activities may be affected until the details of your new life are sorted out.

At the Law Offices of Sue Saign, our Morgan Hill divorce attorney understands the struggles you face. We are passionate about helping you through every step of the process, providing intelligent solutions with the right mix of compassion and aggressiveness, in order to obtain the best outcome.

We have the experience to help you. We are recognized for handling cases involving sensitive and challenging issues.  That experience includes handling custody and visitation issues, division of assets such as real property, stock options and retirement benefits. Our goal is to help you retain your rights to your children and your family assets.
