The firm's offices are located in a brick three-story building in a quiet, unassuming area of Scripps Ranch just west of Interstate 15. This location is convenient to courts throughout San Diego County yet provides a welcome change from the congestion of downtown San Diego to clients going through a challenging time in their life. The firm goes to great lengths to ensure our clients are in comfortable surroundings and have confidence in their legal representation when dealing with the most personal of issues, their family.

The firm's roots began in 1974 when Beatrice Larsson Snider was admitted to the State Bar of California. In 1980, Ms. Snider became a Certified Family Law Specialist- the first year Certification was available from the State Bar of California. At the time, Ms. Snider was one of twelve attorneys in San Diego County to receive such recognition. Christine Hayes Sickler joined the firm in 1985. Following in Ms. Snider's footsteps, Ms. Sickler became a Certified Family Law Specialist in 1991and subsequently became a shareholder with the firm. In 2014, Win Heiskala, Carmen E. Ramos and Ed Castro were made partners in Beatrice L. Snider Family Law Group, LLP. The firm is one of the largest law firms in California dedicated exclusively to family law. A tremendous complement to our attorney staff is our knowledgeable and experienced paralegal staff and administrative staff.

The firm emphasizes a team concept to provide the highest level of client satisfaction and communication in a cost-efficient manner. Understanding most clients' desire to resolve their matters on an amicable basis, the firm prides itself on the attorneys' abilities to negotiate equitable and fair settlements whenever possible. Frequently cases can be resolved without the stress and cost of trial. In addition, with the knowledge that certain matters cannot be settled, the attorneys are ready, willing and able to litigate complex issues of custody, support, property and financial issues when necessary.

The combination of experience, knowledge and integrity has allowed the firm to provide quality family law representation since 1974 and for many years to come. We know selecting an attorney to represent you with your family law matter can be a daunting task. Review your options carefully and select the firm that is dedicated to your family law needs.
