At Chase, Berenstein and Murray, Counselors at Law, we have decades of distinguished experience in the field of divorce and family law. Our family attorneys in San Mateo County recognize that family conflicts are often emotionally, as well as legally complex. Accordingly, we tailor our representation to address our clients’ most pressing legal concerns and we help our clients preserve important family relationships during the separation and divorce, as well as in the months and years that follow a divorce or separation.
Many clients assume that going to court is the only way to resolve a divorce or other family law dispute, and in some cases, this may indeed be the best way to help a client achieve his or her goals for their family and themselves. In other cases, however, our team can help clients successfully and amicably settle their parental and property interests using mediation or Collaborative Practice (sometimes known as Collaborative Law). These forms of alternative dispute resolution allow clients to not only resolve legal matters more quickly and often at less expense than traditional litigation, but also to divide property and create child custody and timeshare plans in ways that are better suited to all members of the family. Especially when children are involved, this flexibility can be a tremendous advantage. Every one of our family law attorneys in San Mateo County is ready to help you find the right solution for you and your family.
Refreshing to have an attorney that cares about the best possible outcome for the family and not just bill as many hours as possible. Lisa was understanding and I felt well represented in all the key issues. She is also good with developing alternate solutions to complex problems- her years of experience really shows. I recommend her to my friends.
Lisa is straight forward, no nonsense, patient and an excellent advocate. She spelled out her concerns, what is legal, what's optimal, what's fair and let us decide for ourselves. Her patience and advocacy was invaluable.
Lisa Murray and her assistant Diana helped me through a very difficult divorce. They always got back to me right away with answers to my questions. They also truly cared about me and did everything they could to help me through this tough period of my life. I would recommend Lisa to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and experienced lawyer who will be there for you every step of the way.
25 Years of Experience
for Every Case
Committed to the Highest
Level of Professionalism
In the past, we have been called upon by the courts to represent a child in a divorce or related family law matter. It is an honor to listen to the child and understand what he or she truly needs, and to then zealously represent them in the legal system.
Our focus is always on the well-being of my clients’ children through both child support and child custody defense. Not only do I ensure that your child’s interests remain at the forefront while crafting a legal solution, but I often recommend mediation or the Collaborative Practice process as a means of ensuring your children are protected from the destruction that litigation can inflict. If there is one thing that defines my family law practice, it is that I will always look out for what is best for your children, both now and in the future.
