We Place a High Priority On Accolades and Experience in  San Diego Family Law and Divorce

Our roots can be traced back to the moment in which Beatrice Larsson Snider was proudly admitted to California’s State Bar. By 1980, Ms. Snider became a Certified Family Law Specialist and this was the first year in which the State Bar Of California made such certification available. At that time, Ms. Snider was one of the only twelve attorneys who earned such certification. In 1985, Christine Hayes Sickler joined the firm, and she also became a Certified Family Law specialist by 1991. Shortly thereafter, she became one of the shareholders of the firm. 

By 2014, Ed Castro became a partner at the BLS, Family Law Firm. By 2016, Stephen R. Murphy joined the partnership. With so many high-profile and talented attorneys, we are among the largest firms in California that are exclusively dedicated to family law. Such an achievement could never have been possible without the help of our experienced attorneys, administrative staff and paralegal staff. 

The firm embodies a team approach when it comes to providing the highest level of service for our clients. Also, we place a high priority on client communication and cost-efficiency. Our attorneys know very well that clients would resolve legal matters in a civil and friendly way. Our attorneys strive to negotiate a fair settlement whenever possible. In most cases, our cases are resolved without a costly trial. We always strive for a stress-free resolution not only for our clients but also for all parties involved. On the other hand, our attorneys know that there are certain cases that cannot be settled. In such instances, our attorneys are more than willing and fully able to litigate complex legal issues involving financial, property, support, and custody issues.
