From Our Clients

My previous lawyer never answered the phone and never gave me a straight answer when it came to what was going on in my case. it felt like my case was out of control. from the first conversation with Hills Law Group, I knew there was a plan in place and that there was an understanding of what could and could not happen as far as outcomes. I would highly recommend working with Max’s team if you are tired of playing phone tag with your lawyer and you do not understand where your case is going!

Arya E.

Mediation failed so I needed a lawyer to finish things off. My ex was asking for literally double the amount of support she was entitled to. I found this out after my first meeting with Hills Law Group and I did not look back. I much prefer having a lawyer over a mediator simply because I am getting advice, not just information. I have a team in my corner and it helps. I realized a shift in the momentum of my case when we first appeared at Court. The Judge saw us as reasonable and them as crazy… because they were. I am glad it is over and I am glad I met Max.

Curt R.

I was in an abusive relationship for 20 years that ended violently for both myself and for my kids. Hills law Group made me safe. I had not slept through the night in years and I was able to after I got a restraining order. I was not able to stand up for myself before, partly due to money – but partly because I didn’t really know what domestic violence was. Once Max and team informed me, I was able to recognize my situation and do something to get out of it. Max’s team got my temporary restraining order and won at trial to get my restraining order. Thank you guys!

Rebecca C.

Max and his team drafted a prenup for me last month. Our main concern was to keep this out of the house and let the lawyers deal with it. Max explained what was possible and gave really good advice on what we should do. would Recommend Hills Law Group for anyone getting a prenup and I send all my friends to them.

Since 2015, we’ve been advocating for clients in cases involving:

Divorce

Most divorces aren’t straightforward, even if both spouses are mostly on the same page. Several family law issues must be resolved before a judge will sign off. Our attorneys are highly skilled negotiators and accomplished litigators – we will help you identify your goals and put a plan into action to get the best outcome for your family.

Child Custody and Visitation

California prefers that parents remain active and involved in their childrens’ lives after a divorce. However, the best interests of the child will always come first. It’s important for parents to set aside differences and work together to find an amicable solution to custody and visitation. Our lawyers will help you every step of the way, working to negotiate terms that work for your entire family – while keeping your kids safe.

more info

Child Support

In California, parents are required to support their children whether or not they’re married. Our lawyers can help you calculate child support requirements, enforce the terms of your existing court order, or petition the court to modify an order if support amounts need to be adjusted. We’ll help you make sure that your child gets the financial support they need, no matter what.

more info

Spousal Support

Sometimes one spouse needs a little extra financial help to get on their feet after a divorce. This can happen when spouses have significantly different incomes or if one spouse stays home to take care of the kids. In order to ensure that both partners are able to thrive after a divorce, California allows a lesser-earning spouse to seek alimony, or spousal support. Our lawyers can help you petition for support, modify the terms of an existing agreement, or fight to recover alimony payments that are overdue.

more info

Property Division

California has community property rules – meaning each spouse is entitled to one-half of all marital assets when they get divorced. Identifying, valuing, and allocating property (and debts) can get complicated – quick. No matter where you fall on the economic spectrum, our attorneys can help. We have extensive experience handling high-net-worth divorces and are equipped to navigate any curveballs or challenges that opposing counsel might throw your way.

more info

Cohabitation Agreements

Just because you and your partner aren’t legally married doesn’t mean that you’re not a family. You might have a joint bank account, share assets, and even raise children together. In the event that your romantic relationship doesn’t last, it’s important to have a structured plan for moving forward in place. That’s where a cohabitation agreement can be helpful. Our lawyers can help you find an amicable resolution to issues, particularly property division, asset protection, and financial support. 

more info

Postnuptial Agreements

Pre-and postnuptial agreements are increasingly popular – and for good reason. A well-executed postnup can save a lot of heartache and stress should a marriage not last. It can allow you to sidestep California’s strict community property rules, protect assets, and divide marital belongings (and debts) more equitably. Our lawyers will help you identify your goals, negotiate with your spouse, and formulate a legally binding prenuptial or postnuptial agreement that reflects your wishes.

more info

Mediation Services

Divorce can be expensive. The longer it takes for spouses to see eye-to-eye on every aspect of their split, the more costly it becomes. Mediation – a type of alternative dispute resolution – is a great tool that allows you to maintain control of your divorce and save money in the long run. Mediation involves the assistance of a neutral third party, whose primary objective is to help spouses see the big picture and move toward mutually agreeable solutions to things like custody, financial support, and asset division. Our lawyers are skilled negotiators and can help you make the most of divorce mediation.

Why Should I Hire a Family Law Attorney Near Me?

You Deserve an Advocate During a Difficult Time

Any legal dispute that involves family can be really tough to handle. It’s easy for emotions to run high – and even take over. When you hire our Orange County divorce and family law attorneys, you might be in a fragile condition. But, we’ll be ready to help you look at your situation in a rational and logical way.

We’ll be there to provide guidance and support every step of the way, keeping your objectives front and center.

Does it Make Financial Sense to Hire a Divorce Attorney?

Any family law case – including divorce – can get expensive, and fast. The longer it takes for both parties to reach an agreement, the more costly the case will become – especially if it ends up going to trial. While it might seem counterintuitive, hiring a divorce lawyer to handle your family law case can actually save you money in the long run. 

No matter your financial situation, our Orange County divorce attorneys  can help. Hills Law Group takes a modern approach to the legal profession, embracing digital technology to help cases move faster and to minimize cost. We will run thorough cost-benefit analyses to make sure that you are getting an affordable option for litigation.

Whenever possible, we will prioritize mediation and other types of ADR. These tools can help you resolve your legal disputes swiftly and avoid the courtroom, which means a lower overall cost to litigate your case.

Give Yourself the Time to Focus on Family

Family law disputes in California must follow specific rules and procedures. Missing a deadline or deviating from these set standards can cause a lot of damage to your family law case. It could result in an adverse decision for you or extend the amount of time it takes to resolve your issue – meaning it will be more expensive, as well.

Hills Law Group has been handling family law matters in the state of California since 2015. Our lawyers have more than three decades of combined legal experience. We’re well-versed in the rules and procedures that will apply to your case and will work diligently to expedite your litigation within the bounds of the law.
