70 Years of Combined Experience Efficiently Resolving Family Law Issues

Daprile-Bell Family Law Offices is a boutique law firm specializing in family law matters in the greater Silicon Valley area, including San Jose, San Mateo and Santa Cruz. We are a law firm of experienced attorneys and paralegals who provide unparalleled legal representation and consultative services pertaining to a myriad family law related issues.

We pride ourselves on creating and implementing an individual strategy for each case in order to be on the offensive whenever possible. However, we are also adept at handling difficult cases that come to us with challenging histories. We founded our firm on the principle of providing exceptional service to each of our clients whether we are the first and only attorney on the matter or whether the case comes to us to “fix.” One of our shining attributes is that we make sure that we maintain excellent communication at all times with our clients. These guiding principles have established us as a highly respected law firm throughout Silicon Valley, where we are respected by the judges and other attorneys alike.

We fully understand the emotional strain and financial hardship that protracted legal conflicts can have on a family. Our professional lawyers fight for positive results for clients, and we offer representation honed through seven decades of combined experience to help reduce conflict and move ahead toward an optimal resolution. We also do a cost benefit analysis on each case and work with each client to assure our services are tailored to their needs and budgets.
