Sarah Pinkerton Becomes Certified Family Law Specialist

(Carlsbad, California) - Sarah Pinkerton, associate attorney with the law firm Fleischer & Ravreby, has enhanced her ability to serve clients as a Certified Family Law Specialist in the state of California. Pinkerton becomes one of approximately 200 family law attorneys in California with this specialized designation in San Diego County.

California attorneys who are certified as specialists must have taken and passed a written examination similar to the bar exam, covering only family law. The attorney must demonstrate a high level of experience in their field, such as having a having conducted a minimum amount of trials, hearings, settlements, stipulations, and mediations.

After passing the specialist exam, demonstrating a high level of skill and experience, and after fulfilling the ongoing education requirements, certified specialists must receive favorable evaluations from other attorneys and judges familiar with their work. To maintain the designation, attorneys must complete continuing legal education in their specialty field of practice at a higher level than general practice attorneys without specialized certification.

“I’m proud of these accomplishments, but mostly what I hope they signify is that clients can feel confident when they meet with me that they have an experienced attorney on their side who will always give them honest and knowledgeable advice,” said Pinkerton.

Selecting a family law attorney can be challenging, especially when dealing with stressful personal challenges such as divorce or child custody. The State Bar of California’s Board of Legal Specialization has made it easier by requiring specialists adhere to higher standards of excellence, experience, and education. By selecting a legal specialist as your attorney, you are assured the assistance of a better-trained, well qualified attorney experienced in family law matters.

Pinkerton has extensive trial and courtroom experience including work on complex child custody cases, including parent “move away” issues; child and spousal support; and cases involving domestic violence.

Pinkerton has been peer reviewed and rated “AV – Preeminent,” the highest possible rating of legal ability and ethical standards. This rating represents the judgment of her fellow attorneys and judges in the San Diego legal community.

Pinkerton was named one of San Diego’s “Top Attorneys 2014” in an annual poll by San Diego Magazine.

Pinkerton says she was attracted to the practice of family law because it allows her to work with “real people” and have a real effect helping them on an immediate basis.

In addition to Pinkerton’s professional qualifications, she possesses the qualities essential to a family law attorney: caring, compassionate, and dedicated. Clients describe her as a good listener, always treating each individual with fairness and dignity.

Pinkerton graduated from law school at the University of San Diego. She has been a San Diego resident since 2003.
