“Big firms, with even bigger bills.”

This is not an exaggeration. Consider this quote from a bar association meeting in September of 2002 by Los Angeles Superior Court, then-presiding family law judge, Aviva Bobb. “By the time we see [divorce] cases in court, most people have spent all their community assets on the divorce itself.”

According to Presiding California Family Law Judge, Marjorie Steinberg in the Los Angeles Times Magazine from May 4, 2008 – If a couple can get a divorce for $100,000 in Los Angeles, Judge Steinberg considers that “pretty cheap.”
