Marcy Sharafian

Family Lawyer 

Welcome to the family law practice of Marcy Sharafian.

A separation or divorce can be an emotionally and financially trying process but as is often the case when facing challenges, there is also the opportunity for growth and learning.

​As a mediator and collaborative professional, I am here to help you through the separation process, to help you understand yourself and your partner better so that you can create meaningful agreements for your future, based not in anger and resentment, but in connection, compassion, and understanding. I offer a variety of consensual dispute resolution options, such as mediation, collaborative practice, consultation, and limited scope representation.

While I truly believe that separating individuals should choose the least adversarial path possible, I also know that at times representation and litigationmay be necessary to move forward. In such cases, I am an experienced negotiator who is ready to advocate for my clients in court.

​My goal is to help you find the most appropriate path during this challenging time. I specialize in most matters related to family law, including Dissolution of Marriage or Domestic Partnership, Legal Separation, Property and Retirement Division, Child Custody and Visitation, Child Support and Spousal Support.

I am excited to announce that I have now joined Christy Keith Family Law Group in Montclair. I will be able to meet clients in Montclair and Walnut Creek.
