Judy Burger is a Certified Family Law Specialist*.  A Certified Family Law Specialist is more than just an attorney who specializes in Family Law.  In order to become certified by the California State Bar as a Family Law Specialist she had to:

  • Take and pass an arduous written examination in Family Law;
  • Demonstrate a high level of experience in Family Law by having participated in a large number of court hearings, participation in  trial, sitting as a Judge Pro Temp, and completing  continuing education classes far above the required hours;
  • Be favorably evaluated by Judges she appears before and attorneys that are familiar with her work;
  • Go above and beyond fulfilling ongoing educational requirements to stay on top of the ever changing case and statutory law in order to better represent her clients.


Ms. Burger is known for her aggressive, “outside of the box”, knowledgeable representation. She is well versed in the law and understands how to use the law to benefit her clients which allows for successful maneuvering through complex Family Court procedures.

Ms. Burger is ready to litigate, but has a high success rate in settling cases.  Many attorneys settle easily because they do not want to go to trial.  As a graduate of the esteemed National Family Law Trial Institute Family Law Trial Techniques in 2012, Ms. Burger is more than equipped to take your matter to trial.  However, she is careful and deliberate when determining if a trial is right for the case and will keep this in mind when participating in a mandatory settlement conference.


Ms. Burger brings the added benefit of an extensive business background which she applies to her cases.  Unlike many attorneys, she understands how businesses and corporations work, understands the complex financial documentation involved, and can comprehend and interpret corporate and sole proprietor tax returns.

As a graduate from the National Family Law Trial Institute Advanced Trial Business Valuations 2013, Ms. Burger also understands Business Valuations which are highly complex and frightening for most Family Law attorneys.
