Proven, Practical Divorce and Family Law Representation From Our North County Child and Spousal Support Lawyer

Attorney Samuel Godkin has been practicing law in the San Diego, California, since 1996, with a constant focus on family law and divorce, including child custody and visitation and child support. He helps people across the full economic and cultural landscape, working with a strong circle of other lawyers and experts in the field.

Attorney Godkin believes in focusing his law practice on a few areas to ensure that he can provide the competent and experienced legal guidance that his clients deserve. There are lawyers who love to go to court because the fees pile up fast in a contested case. Some are aggressive in bringing conflict to a head, whether or not that is in your best interest. Others are passive about offering guidance on tough issues. These are some of the traits and patterns we avoid.

We See the Big Picture and Strive to Keep Legal Costs Down When Filing for Divorce in California

Mr. Godkin, and other attorneys with whom he works, shares a passion for big-picture problem-solving. That means we will:

  • Objectively evaluate your case when it comes to determining which issues to pursue aggressively and which issues are not worth your time or money
  • Be analytical and objective as we find ways to accomplish what you want while keeping costs down
  • Maintain a focus on helping you get through a crisis and start putting your life back in order

In family law and divorce matters, we drive toward fair, constructive settlements through negotiation or mediation whenever possible. At the Law Offices of Samuel S. Godkin and Associates, we believe in handling your case the right way from the outset, on the principle that if it's worth doing, it's worth doing right the first time.
