Finding the right divorce attorney is so important, it is worth your time to do your due diligence on who you are partnering with to ensure you are being represented in a way that will help you the most in recovering and thriving after the divorce process is over…Jon is a seasoned professional that has deep roots in the San Diego legal community so his experience will help guide you on the best path forward.

Julie Cepeda was my lawyer through my divorce case a few years ago and my more recent move away case. She has been mentored by Jon, the head attorney, and it shows how well he has done with guiding Julie. Julie is truly the best at hand. She is VERY knowledgeable, and she is very real. The confidence in herself and work helped drive my cases from start to finish. She was there for me every step of the way and had no issue explaining the process.
