Our Approach

Divorce in Santa Clara County can be a confusing and lengthy process. Selecting the right law firm or divorce attorney to represent you is one of the most important decisions you will make in your dissolution process.  Here, at Hepner & Pagan, LLP, we are committed to protecting our client’s interests and providing the highest quality legal services in a timely, efficient and cost-effective manner. We understand that as you begin to walk down the path that divorce will take you, everything is at stake.  Your future and the future of your children depend on how you approach your divorce.

If your case requires litigation, our experienced family lawyers will provide trusted advocacy with the skills to move your case forward as aggressively as needed to obtain a successful outcome. However, Hepner & Pagan, LLP provides alternative dispute resolution services as well, helping to resolve disputes through negotiation, mediation, and collaborative law. We believe that there is always more than one way to resolve a client’s situation, and provide the necessary support and tools you will need to navigate through difficult times. Whether clients choose litigation, meditation or collaborative law, our family law lawyers are dedicated to addressing your needs in a positive, collaborative manner that resolves conflict, avoids court intervention whenever possible, and helps families restructure their relationship to benefit all members during and after the divorce.

One of the most sensitive aspects of divorce is child custody and visitation. Our divorce lawyers work to preserve the psychological, emotional, and physical well-being of your children, and to help you protect your children from being exposed to any dissolution-related matters. Ms. Hepner and Ms. Pagan understand that you will have strong feelings about the emotional, physical, and legal needs of your children, and your spouse will too. Our divorce lawyers are sensitive to those needs and we will use our experience to advise you in co-parenting and custody disputes. We will use all of our resources to prepare you for custody mediation if that is the best process for your case. We promote the use of mediation to resolve custody disputes throughout Santa Clara County. If, however, you cannot work through your disputes yourselves or through mediation, our lawyers will fight zealously through the court system to protect your rights and the rights of your most precious assets, your children.
