Staff Attorney

San Jose divorce attorney Sasha Demienne

San Jose divorce attorney Sasha Demienne always wanted to pursue family law because, as a child of divorce herself, she knows how heartbreaking and life-altering domestic conflicts can be.

Family creates the foundation from which we all embark into the world, and the deterioration of the family unit generally represents a significant crack in that foundation.

“I believe that a family law attorney who is sensitive and responsive to the deeply intimate and personal issues that often occur in domestic cases can make a world of difference in the life of her client,” Ms. Demienne said.

Ms. Demienne is empathetic to the frustration and hardships that domestic relations clients experience, and is a skilled listener who puts people at ease and makes them feel comfortable.

“The events leading up to and during the family law process may very well be devastating,” she said, “but you should do your best to maintain your priorities, such as your children, and not allow the conflict with the other party to cloud your judgment or dictate your behavior.”
