    We represented a father in a child custody and visitation dispute. The father was moving to another city in the Bay Area and he needed to adjust the current co-parenting plan.

  • Petition for Child Custody Dismissed Under UCCJEA

    July 2022

    Our client was the father of a child who lived in the State of Nevada for the past 5 years. Although there has been no formal child custody order between the father and the mother, the father has been the primary caregiver of the child in the State of Nevada while the mother has had occasional visitation in the State of California. At the conclusion of a one week visitation, the mother refused to return the child to their home and filed for joint physical and legal custody in the State of California. Based on the facts, we concluded that this legal action was improper because the State of Nevada should have jurisdiction over this case Under the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA). We worked with a law firm in the State of Nevada to get an emergency court order to return the child to the father, contacted the local police department to enforce the court order, and dismissed the mother's petition because the State of California does not have jurisdiction over this matter.

  • Pharmacy Technician License Revocation Stayed

    April 2022

    We just saved the livelihood of a single mother who receives no child support in Solano County. Our client made a mistake outside of the scope of her employment, but the California Board of Pharmacy wanted to revoke her pharmacy technician license. Our firm was retained with a short period of time until the administrative law hearing. We immediately reached out to the Office of the Attorney General, requested a continuance on the hearing, and started preparing an aggressive mitigation package. The Board rejected our initial mitigation package and wanted to proceed with the hearing for revocation. We made several adjustments to the mitigation package, prepared a legal defense for the hearing, but also pleaded to the Deputy Attorney General that revocation is an unjust result in this particular case with severe consequences to this family. We were very fortunate to have a just and reasonable attorney on the other side, which resulted in us being able to settle this case with our client keeping her license and being placed on 3 years of probation. Upon successful completion of probation, her license will be fully restored. Read On
