Discuss Your Case with a La Mesa Family Law Attorney

Whether you are interested in filing for divorce or engaged in a hotly contested family law dispute, if you have questions related to an important legal problem, you need the right answers. That is why I, Attorney Andrea Schneider offers a free phone consultation to discuss your situation. I will carefully listen to your concerns and determine legal options.

Building Trust One Client at a Time

Unfortunately, many people postpone calling an attorney when they’re experiencing a legal problem. While some attempt to handle the issue themselves, others simply just ignore them in hopes they will disappear. The truth is, legal issues become more complex as time passes, leaving people vulnerable to making costly mistakes. Sometimes trying to do this yourself actually makes it more costly to undo what you might’ve done wrong.

Together, you and I form a team with the purpose of obtaining the most favorable outcome possible. By offering a free consultation, I don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach to your case. Instead, you have the opportunity to speak with me—rather than another attorney or paralegal—about your legal issues and understand the legal process.

Case Results

Take a look at my victories!
  • No Custody Client swerved and hit a parked car. Her blood alcohol content was a.30, over 3 times the legal limit.
  • Custody Granted My client has lived out of state for many years and the father was not allowing her to see her 2 children. After much negotiation we reached a very favorable written agreement an hour before our court hearing, and the Judge made it an order. Mom will now have her kids at her home for 4 weeks in the summer, every other holiday and get to talk with them privately as much as they want to talk. She will get to spend Christmas with her children in her home for the first time in 10 years!
  • No Death Penalty Our client and a co-defendant were accused of murdering 2 elderly people by beating them to death with metal rods. We pled our client not guilty by reason of insanity. He had been in and out of mental hospitals from the time he was 15 years old. The co-defendant was sentenced to the death penalty but we were able to negotiate with the Deputy District Attorney during trial and our client received life without parole instead of the death penalty.
  • Charges Reduced Client was having an affair and got pregnant. In a heightened sense of distress, my client decided it would be best for her and her 4 year old daughter to pass. She gave her liquid drain cleaner thinking she would die peacefully. She was going to then kill herself. Instead, her daughter started choking and coughing. My client snapped out of her emotional state and called for help. My client faced many years in prison. We negotiated with the Deputy District Attorney and she received a few years in prison.
  • No Custody Client got arrested for the first DUI, we resolved it and shortly after he got a second DUI. Residential program instead of custody, and volunteer work instead of public work service.
  • Appeal Our client was sentenced to death for the brutal murder of a young mom and her 4 year old daughter. After reviewing thousands of pages from the trial, interviewing witnesses and family members, we found some issues that had not been previously litigated and were able to get these issues sent to State Court.
  • Dismissed Client was charged with a battery against her husband. He called the police after she threw something and it hit him during a late night argument. She was sentenced to 3 years of informal probation. After 18 months we petitioned the Court to have her probation terminated our request was granted, her probation was terminated early and her case was dismissed.
  • No Actual Custody It was about 4 p.m. and my client had a fight with his wife. He decided to drink 1/2 pint of Vodka and hit the car in front of him and got arrested. He had a .12 blood alcohol content. This arrest was 2 years after a previous DUI conviction. So, he was still on probation. He could have done 90 days to 1 year in custody on this new DUI because of his probation violation. However, he received no actual custody: 96 hours of jail satisfied by CPAC-house arrest, 1 day of Public Service instead of 5, Fines at $50 per month and a no ignition interlock device ordered.
  • No Charges Filed My client slapped her husband after he pushed her and was “handsy” with her. He called the police and she got arrested for battery. He made various statements that were inconsistent and therefore no charges were filed.
  • No Custody Officer smelled alcohol, said she had slurred speech, red eyes and other symptoms of being under the influence. She had a blood alcohol content of .11 and did not pass the Field Sobriety Tests given by the officer. She had a DUI with 2 DUI priors. Her result was no custody, credit for time served when arrested, no public service and instead did volunteer work, fines at $35 per month, no ignition interlock device ordered and a fine reduction of $575 by client agreeing to do a program.

    Dan

  • Andrea was extremele helpful and did an excellent job!

    “I had an uncontentious divorce so thought I could do the paperwork myself, not the case. Andrea was willing to work with us in a way that worked well for both of us. She and her amazing assistant had to undo and redo much of what I thought I did right. They got our paperwork through the court system and took all the stress off of me. Andrea was kind, attentive, transparent, of high integrity and extremely effective. I would highly recommend her!”
