THE FAMILY LAW FIRM OF Hammers & Baltazar congratulates our Senior Litigation Partner, Barbara Hammers, for being recognized as one of Orange County's top attorneys in 2015 by Coast Magazine.
Ms. Hammers is an expert litigator, mediator, and collaborative law attorney with 18 years of experience in divorce and child custody matters. She is a Specialist in Family Law certified by the State Bar of California, Board of Legal Specialization.
Barbara's expertise in the field of Family Law has resulted in her lecturing throughout the State of California to other family law attorneys regarding trial advocacy skills. Her background in psychology and her life skills have given her a savvy in the dynamics of family law which give her clients and their children an edge in both litigation and out of court resolutions. Her direct, down to earth communication style makes her easy to work with for both her clients and other attorneys interested in bringing closure to the process and getting things done.
Barbara consistently prevails in complex courtroom trials including: high net worth asset division, business valuations, high earner support and difficult child custody issues. She has represented celebrities, high level investment executives, captains of industry, commercial real estate developers and professional athletes, among others. That said, Barbara is often able to leverage a resolution short of litigation, preserving children's security, parties' resources, privacy and dignity, and reducing the damage and unpredictability involved in a court battle. Barbara Hammers earned a degree in psychology at Cal State Fullerton and went on to obtain her law degree at UCLA School of Law.
With offices in Costa Mesa and Santa Monica, her firm works exclusively with divorce and family matters, including child custody, spousal and child support, post-judgment modifications, property division and paternity.
