When a case has been filed with the Court, it is considered to be in litigation. Gabriela Matthews has over 20 years experience as a litigation attorney and can provide representation in all areas of family law litigation.  There are people who just cannot enter into a civilized discussion.  It is "my way or no way."  At times, for those types of cases they need a third party -- the Court -- to decide the matter for them or to force them to do something.

Gabriela Matthews is known as an aggressive, reputable, well-respected, prepared, zealous advocate for her clients.  She is a tough litigator who can listen to her clients, and determine what is the most cost effective, productive way to accomplish their goals.  She has taken cases where other attorneys have given up, or the clients have fired them, because they were not getting results.

Ms. Matthews is known for her direct communication.  She frequently tells clients, "If you want to hear what you want to hear, then I can send you to another lawyer.  My job is to tell you the reality of Court, what the Judge is likely to do.  I never want you to hear something from the Judge that you never heard from me."  Ms. Matthews will assess your case accurately, honestly and fairly and tell you what is the realistic and effective way to achieve your goals. 

Litigation is not an easy thing to do.  There are many litigators out there but not too many of them have the skill, articulation, and knowledge to present your case in the best light possible.   Ms. Matthews has over twenty years of experience with proven results.  See testimonials on home page.  She has created results that others said "couldn't be done."
