~ Experienced, Affordable & Effective ~



Welcome to the Law Offices of Werno & Associates, a Professional Law Corporation.  We know that you have a wide variety of attorneys to choose from.  We also know that not all attorneys are created equal.

We would suggest that you ask yourself, do I want an attorney that practices all kinds of different law, or do I want someone who has been certified by the California Board of Legal Specialization as a Family Law Specialist?  If you decide that you want a Family Law Specialist and a firm dedicated to solving family law problems, then we can help.

Any attorney can practice family law, but Don Werno, Esquire has passed the rigorous family law specialist bar examination and has documented the significant experience in family court matters needed to be referred to as a Certified Family Law Specialist.  Only a small number of attorneys ever qualify to be certified as a specialist and Don is one of them.

Because people matter, Don majored in Psychology, receiving both Bachelor and Master’s Degrees, prior to attending law school.  Whether your problem involves a divorce, child custody, support or domestic violence, we have the knowledge, experience, insight and skill to help.

We have been assisting our clients with their family law problems for more than 20 years.  We would welcome the opportunity to talk to you about how we can help you, too.

Home Testimonials

Marketing is easy. That's what divorce attorneys do. Getting satisfied clients to leave feedback... That's hard, which is why we're grateful to our family law clients who were so satisfied that they wanted to leave positive feedback for others who follow. We believe that we've earned their respect and we'd like to earn yours, too.

Attorney Testimonials

It not just our clients saying nice things, other attorneys had positive things to say about us, too.

From our perspective, it's important for you to know that we believe in a highly personalized approach to the practice of law, where our primary goal is to serve you. Because we understand that the legal system can be stressful and intimidating, our experienced and caring staff will devote the time needed to truly understand your legal problem and to take the steps necessary to fully meet your expectations.

In fact, a few of the many ways that we can help you is through our Collaborative Divorce and Divorce Mediation services, which are excellent alternatives to litigation and that can save you significant time, energy and money.

Our principal attorney, Don Werno is not only a DRPA Trained Mediator, but also has Bachelor and Master Degrees in Psychology, so he understands the emotions involved in family court cases. Don also has the compassion, skills and resources available to help our clients through extremely difficult and stressful times. If you would like to know more about Don's extensive education and experience, please click here.

Unfortunately, not every legal problem can be resolved in a collaborative manner. In fact, there are some cases where the other side just can't or won't be reasonable. Don't worry, in those situations we are fully capable of aggressively representing our clients and fighting to protect their rights in Court. The truth is that we enjoy going to trial, however, trial is never our first choice because of the time and expense involved. As such, only after we exhaust all other reasonable options will we take the fight to Court and when we do, we fully expect to win.

If you'd like to read what our former clients are click here and you'll learn that we care about the people we work for and that we get positive results. In fact, most of our new clients are referrals from former clients. In fact, we also work for many attorneys, who trust us to take care of their own personal legal problems. Consider this, if an attorney is willing to trust us with their own legal problem, shouldn't you consider letting us help you with yours, too?

We’re proud to receive the AVVO Client’s Choice Award

It's no secret that we care about our clients and it shows. Recently, we received the Avvo.com Client's Choice award again, in honor of our dedication and service to our clients. It was based upon independent feedback that our client's provided and we're honored to know that our clients appreciate our hard work and dedication, too. While we didn't need another award to decide to dedicate ourselves to taking care of our clients, we sincerely appreciate that they took the time to share their experiences with others. To our clients, thanks for allowing us to continue to serve you.

Our Clients have shown their support on YELP, too…

Consultations are Confidential

It all starts with an initial consultation, whether in person or by telephone - your choice. Either way, we will personally take your call or meet with you and give you the in depth attention that you deserve. Our personal attention goes well beyond the initial consultation or just signing you up - we make every effort to answer our phones at night and on the weekend. We would rather have a short phone call and put your mind at ease, instead of having you stress out all weekend, just because you couldn't ask your attorney a simple question. It's that kind of personal attention that makes us different and that keeps our former clients sending their family and friends to us for help. We'd like to help you, too.

Regardless of how big or small your case is, or how rich or humble a client might be, we are always concerned with the cost benefit analysis of the various decisions that need to be made to resolve your case and we spend a considerable amount of time educating our clients about their options, so that they can make the best possible decision at each fork in the road. By watching out for our clients and for their assets, we have repeatedly demonstrated that we are more than just a law firm, we are a valuable resource, which is exactly why new clients often get referred to us by prior satisfied clients and we want to make sure that it stays that way.

If you're ready for some serious, no nonsense help with your legal problem, call the Law Offices Werno & Associates today at 714.542.4466 and let's get to work.
