Reality Of Divorce In San Diego

The truth and reality of divorce in San Diego: Lawyers, even the best, are not magicians. We can’t kick the game-winning field goal from 100 yards away, to save you from an unfavorable decision. We work with facts clients give us, and we all are supposed to know the laws and local rules. Where attorney Sam Godkin takes great pride is to be able to take facts and “think outside the box.” As renowned artists would do, he paints the best picture possible with the facts given to him, such that the perception is more important than the facts themselves.
