Denham Family Law, APC
A Client-Focused Family Law Specialist At Your Side

Donna Denham

Donna Denham

Chula Vista, California
I have dedicated my career exclusively to the practice of resolving family conflict. To provide the family law expertise clients need and deserve, I sought specialized training in the unique challenges of family law in California. Through this training, I received designation from the State Bar of California as a Certified Family Law Specialist—one of only three in South Bay.

The CFLS designation means I am uniquely qualified to provide all types of family law services, including divorce, military divorce, child custody & visitation, child support, and alimony, among others.

Since attending California Western School of Law for a Juris Doctor in 2004, I’ve honed my family law skills working in law firms, including Hargreaves & Taylor, LLP, and Denham & Britt, LLP, as well as in solo practice.

Now, I’m bringing my expertise as a family law attorney in San Diego directly to you in private practice at Denham Family Law, APC.

Put my experience and client-focused approach to work as your family law attorney in San Diego. Schedule a free, 30-minute strategy session with me today.
