San Mateo Divorce Lawyers

A warrior spirit forged by 30 years of experience

The family attorneys at the Law Office of K.J. Petsas, PC have been committed to the service of others. With more than three decades of combined experience and strategic, analytical backgrounds, our San Mateo divorce attorneys are solutions oriented and ready to fight for you.

As a combat veteran of the Vietnam conflict, having served as an infantry officer with the U.S. Marine Corps from 1968–1969 and retiring as Lieutenant Colonel after more than 20 years of reserve duty, and as a former prosecutor, K.J. Petsas knows first-hand what it takes to win. As a San Francisco and San Mateo divorce lawyer, he understands the value of analysis, preparation and action.

 At the Law Office of K.J. Petsas, PC, we handle the following family legal matters:

Rational decisions demand rational thinking

Family law is one of the most emotionally charged areas of the legal arena. But intense emotions can — and do — cloud the sound decision-making required to address issues like child custody, visitation and asset division. We help you to think clearly and do what is in the best interests for you and your family while still maintaining integrity.

A disciplined approach from a veteran divorce attorney

Our law firm:

  • Ensures you know your rights so you can make the best short- and long-term decisions for you and your family
  • Concentrates on resolving problems as amicably as possible but will diligently prepare for litigation when necessary
  • Keeps you constantly informed of what is expected of you and what to expect, helping to reduce your anxiety and stress
  • Refers you to qualified therapists and mediators to help you over the emotional hurdles

Aggressive champions for the best interests of your child

Because children are frequently unable to defend themselves or articulate their needs in a toxic family situation, our San Francisco and San Mateo divorce attorneys zealously advocate on their behalf. In fact, children are our main focus. With our help and guidance, divorce — over time — can often yield a positive change in children’s lives as well as the lives of all family members involved.
