About

 Juris Doctor

As a native of San Diego, I am passionate attorney practicing both family law and estate law in “America’s Finest City”.

I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Political Science at the University of California, Los Angeles in 1998. I then went on to earn my Juris Doctor degree at the University of San Diego Law School.

Since then, I’ve worked as a trial attorney for nearly 20 years. In mycurrent sole practitioner role, I practice in more than one related yet distinct law area: family law and estates/trusts.

What is Family Law?

Family Law is the area of the law covers those who are interested in getting a divorce or seeking legal separation. For those getting a divorce in California, I will guide you through the process of dealing with issues such as child support, child custody, spousal support, and property division.

What is Estate Law?

Estate law deals with probate, trusts, and wills. I am experienced in helping people to plan their estates or navigate the distribution of a deceased loved one’s property.

The Michael C. MacNeil Difference

The majority of attorneys concentrate on just one area of law in their practices. As a result, their clients must go to multiple attorneys for help with various aspects of the law.

If your legal matters overlap the areas of family law and estate law, you don’t need multiple lawyers. I can meet all of your family law needs.

A Customer-Centric Attorney

I am committed to offering his clients professional and personalized services at reasonable fees when they are planning their estates or getting a divorce in California. Some lawyers focus on taking advantage of their clients to boost their fees. While I enjoy the process of litigating cases through trial, I always advises clients to pursue settlements instead, as this is in their best interest financially.

I’m also committed to providing convenient services. For Californians interested in estate planning or getting a divorce, I can meet you at your home, at your workplace, or in the office setting.
