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

Donna Denham

Donna Denham

Chula Vista, California

My name is Donna Denham. I founded Denham Family Law, APC, a law firm focusing on family law issues including divorce. My office is located in Chula Vista, California and I serve clients throughout San Diego County and the South Bay County area.

I have dedicated my practice exclusively to family law issues, including:

  • Divorce
  • Child custody, support and visitation
  • Alimony and spousal support
  • Property division

No matter your needs, you can rest assured that I am able to take on your case. I have unique levels of experience in this family law, and I am one of three lawyers certified as a specialist in family law by the California Bar Association in South Bay. There are fewer than 1500 family law specialists in the state. To qualify as a specialist, I received special training in both broad family law issues and the challenges that are unique to California residents. My law firm is able to offer the benefit of my experience in this area.

Furthermore, I married a retired service member, and I understand the unusual challenges posed by military divorce. Division of marital assets such as retirement benefits, dealing with child custody when one spouse is deployed and more can all have certain ramifications, and I am comfortable dealing with them.

Facing family law issues can be stressful: family is the most important thing, and you want to ensure that you take care of this correctly so you can move on with your life with minimal upheaval. At Denham Family Law, APC, I will take on your case and give it my utmost care and attention, working to get you the most favorable outcome possible.

I offer free consultations and accept credit cards. Also, my office is conveniently located right off the 805 freeway and Bonita Road, with free parking available.
