(PRWEB) February 16, 2015
Garwood Family Law and Mediation is pleased to announce the growth of its firm, with the hiring of a new family law attorney, Casey A. Reeves. Mr. Reeves joins firm owner, Julia M. Garwood and family law attorney, Janiffer Pearce, to increase the firm’s capacity to serve individuals and families in San Diego County.
Mr. Reeves brings extensive experience in civil business litigation, evidence and discovery to the firm. He is a California Western School of Law graduate and has a Bachelor of Arts Degree from San Diego State University. Mr. Reeves is also a member of the San Diego Family Law Bar Association, San Diego County Bar Association and Los Angeles County Bar Association. He is a member of the Board of Piazza Palermo Home Owners Association and Save our San Diego Coalition, a non-profit corporation.
"While Mr. Reeves’ business litigation experience will strengthen the firm’s already solid prowess in this arena, he is also a shrewd negotiator when it comes to mediating a divorce case," says firm owner, Julia Garwood. "In other words, he can "think outside the box" like few family law attorneys can."
Ms. Garwood, a Certified Family Law Attorney and Mediator, will continue to focus on high asset cases requiring skilled knowledge and expertise in mediation and collaborative family law as well as child custody, child support and spousal support. As a Certified Family Law Specialist, Ms. Garwood has met the rigorous standards set by the California State Bar, having worked in the field of family law for more than thirty years. A former adjunct professor at a local law school, Ms. Garwood is also an acting settlement judge and mediator. Seeing the case through the eyes of a judge, she says, helps her plan cases to achieve the best possible results for her clients. She is also chairperson of the Alternate Dispute Resolution Committee of the San Diego Family Law Bar Association.
Janiffer Pearce’s twenty years of family law experience are leveraged through her extensive litigation expertise in the areas of divorce, child custody, support, paternity, domestic violence and division of community property. Ms. Pearce also provides valuable mediation services, having successfully assisted many families in reaching comprehensive resolutions. Throughout her years of practice, Ms. Pearce has served as a family court mandatory settlement panelist and been appointed by the court to act as a Settlement Master in high conflict cases.
