Divorce & Family Law


Marriage

Each relationship is unique. As a result, we understand that there is no such thing as a one size fits all approach to marital contracts. We use a fresh and effective approach to craft and negotiate prenuptial, postnuptial and cohabitation agreements that can save you a considerable amount of time, stress, and money, in the event your relationship dissolves.

  • How to Prepare for Online Court - When Coronavirus first triggered ‘shelter in place” orders, most courthouses closed. Like full on shut down. It was like the Wild West out there for anyone trying to seek justice. Within a few days to weeks, we began to see online courts emerge. As we struggle to get Covid-19 under control, many courts are still requiring or, at the very least, allowing, litigants to appear in court via video conference. Getting divorced over a video feed can feel ‘anticlimactic’ for ...

  • How to Co-parent During the Coronavirus Pandemic Without Losing Your Mind - But if you lose it here and there, we aren’t going to judge (we’ve all been there!) 5 months and counting. Ahhh, life during a pandemic. The coronavirus has really shaken up the way we live, work, travel, shop, socialize, and educate. Just when we thought we had started to adjust to this new “normal,” something else comes up — like the decision made by many school districts across the country to not open schools for in-person classes this fall.  ...

  • Levine Team Navigates Important Conversations and Action Around Race and Injustice - For years, we have made access to justice a core value. In 2019, Monica Espinosa, Esq. played a significant role in a pro bono case that ultimately saw a man wrongfully imprisoned for decades be released to his family. In 2018, the Levine Team received congressional recognition for our pro bono volunteer work with the Alameda County Superior Court. And, in 2017, we launched Hello Divorce, an affordable, online platform for consumers navigating divorce. And yet, prior to George Floyd’s death, ...

I retained Levine Family Law Group to help me with a domestic matter that needed clearing up, from several years ago. I found the process to be easy, thorough, and professional. Monica Espinosa represented me and she was engaged, interested, compassionate, and intensely understanding of my situation. Throughout the entire process, which was approximately six months, one initial "in person" meeting was all that was required. After that, communication consisted of email and an occasional phone call - Monica was extremely responsive and made the process that much easier.I would wholeheartedly recommend this firm and, more importantly, Monica Espinosa. She went out of her way to ensure my legal issue was handled swiftly and professionally.Thank you, Erin and Monica. I truly appreciate you both.

When I met with Erin Levine she did two things that pleasantly surprised me:She presented a concise and comprehensive quotation for the services they would provide.And they performed these services in precisely the manner described for the amount quoted.It was a refreshing change from some previous experiences with other firms.I was also fortunate enough to have Joanna Funke assigned to my case. She was unfailingly courteous and is to be commended for the professional and diligent manner that she displayed throughout.Brent Lenehan

Erin, and her staff, are phenomenal! She helped me through a divorce and later a custody battle. What I truly enjoyed about working with Erin was that she really took the time to understand me and my situation. She gave me so many options for how to handle the divorce that I never felt as if she was just after my money.Beyond being incredibly warm and empathetic, Erin is sharp, thorough, and inspiring to watch in action. I always knew what to expect and when and never questioned her ability to kick ass if that was the route I wanted to pursue.Ultimately both the divorce and custody battle ended in my favor and I am forever grateful for everything she did for me.

I give everyone at Levine Law group five stars! I was in a panic state by the time I reached Erin . I needed assistance in a support modification case involving my adult disabled son.Other lawyers I contacted either did not have experience with this type of case or we're not willing to take on the work involved; Erin took the case with no reservation.Erin and her team were so supportive and responsive. They worked out an affordable payment plan and gave me discounts. Erin wanted to know about my son as a person not just as part of a law case. I was part of the team, my input sought and respected.Overall, I am thankful I had Erin and her team on my side.
