DEVOTING STRENGTH AND SKILL
TO THE PRACTICE OF FAMILY LAW
Freid and Goldsman devotes its practice solely to the field
of family law. The firm handles the full range of domestic
relations law, which includes dissolution of marriage,
separation, nullity, paternity, support, custody, visitation,
division and valuation of marital and nonmarital property,
prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, Marvin actions and the
prosecution and defense of appeals.
STRENGTH AND DILIGENCE With more than 70 years of
trial experience between the two senior partners, the firm is
always prepared to go to trial. Although most of their cases are
ultimately resolved by settlement, this trial-readiness enables
the attorneys to negotiate and represent their clients from a
position of strength. Through diligence and skill, the attorneys
successfully control the course of the proceedings to obtain
favorable results for their clients.
DIVERSE TALENTS The attorneys of Freid and Goldsman bring
a wide range of experience and expertise to the firm. Because
most of the firm’s lawyers attended Southern California law
schools, the firm reflects the diversity of the region. Among the
languages the attorneys speak are Spanish, French, Korean,
Armenian, Dutch, Italian and Lithuanian. Additionally, female
attorneys comprise a majority of the legal staff, along with
several attorneys who are certified as family law specialists by
the State Bar of California.
COMMUNIT Y PROMINENCE The members of Freid and
Goldsman actively participate in the legal community. The
firm includes the past chair of the Los Angeles County Bar
