The firm’s twelve attorneys together provide proven experience in handling sensitive personal and family matters while providing strategic advice to protect their client’s reputations and careers.

Larry Ginsberg, one of the firm’s founding partners, states, “We chose Pasadena as the site of our branch office because we felt there was a need here for the particular high-caliber Family Law clients which we represent. Many of our current clients have homes in the Pasadena area. Our primary objective in representing our clients is to attain for them the best possible position to prevail in court or through means of alternate resolution while keeping their personal life out of the spotlight.”

Solely focused on matters of Family Law, Harris • Ginsberg LLP was founded by Suzanne Harris and Larry A. Ginsberg in 1996.

The attorneys at Harris • Ginsberg LLP are known for their contributions to the international Family Law arena. In 2011, the firm’s partners and associates authored an analysis of California Family Law that was first published in the 2011, Family Law Jurisdictional Comparisons. The second edition is being published this year.

The book examines issues relating to jurisdiction, pre and post nuptial agreements, divorce, nullity, separation, custody, support, international abduction of children, cohabitation, civil partnership, and same-sex marriage. On this, partner Suzanne Harris stated, “The publication of the analysis of California Family Law in the 2011 Family Law Jurisdictional Comparisons is a testament to the expertise of our firm’s contributing attorneys.”

Also in 2011, partner Andrea Balian co-authored the Thomson-Reuters 2011 edition of the book Leading Lawyers on Developments in California Family Law. More recently, partner Fahi Hallin co-authored the 2013 edition of the book. Ms. Hallin’s portion focuses on prenuptial agreements, as well as the importance of being very cognizant of jurisdictional issues in dissolution actions.
