Our Firm

Founded in 1985, the Law Firm of Paula S. Teske & Associates approaches the practice of law with integrity and compassion, representing clients with tough determination.

For over 30 years, we have served clients in and around Southern California. Now, through state-of-the-art technology, we operate far beyond our Los Angeles boundaries, reaching out to clients all over the USA and beyond for hearings in the Los Angeles area.

Our Firm’s reason for being is simple: we advocate for the well-being and fair treatment of Los Angeles families – the foundation of our community. We help families grow by facilitating joyful events, such as adoptions, and assist families during divisive times, like divorce or child custody disputes.

In theory, fighting for fairness and basic rights sounds simple. In practice, providing Family Law services requires sensitivity towards many interconnected people – whose needs often conflict – as well as a strong understanding of relevant case law and legal concepts.

Family Law is an evolving, living discipline. The laws governing marriages, divorces, custody and property rights constantly change. California in fact is a bellwether state for Family Law. Many Family Law rights commonly recognized around the country today were first formulated and implemented right here in the Golden State.

Your Case Is Our Cause

We treat our clients and their cases with respect and attention. We also understand that Family Law matters often involve “once in a lifetime” events, such as a divorce, an adoption, or a custody dispute. Most non-lawyers are unfamiliar with what’s required and overwhelmed by questions like:

  • How long will it take?
  • Will I need to appear in Court?
  • Will we need to sell the house?
  • Who gets the kids for the holidays?

We strive not just to handle the legal aspects of our clients’ of cases, but also to resolve our clients’ fears and anxieties, so that they can get their lives back on track.

An Excellent Reputation – Respected by Legal Peers

Martindale-Hubbell has distinguished Ms. Teske as an AV Preeminent attorney, the highest rating available, reserved for attorneys with impeccable ethical standards and outstanding legal ability. Our firm also has a 10.00 rating from AVVO – again, the highest possible rating.

In addition, our team includes multiple Certified Family Law Specialists, a distinction shared by fewer than 1 percent of U.S. law firms. Attorney Paula Teske has also worked extensively at the Juvenile Dependency Court in Los Angeles County.
