Litigation Attorney

Sacramento divorce attorney Jaspreet S. Hundal

Sacramento divorce attorney Jaspreet S. Hundal relishes the feeling of helping other people. Family law related matters are emotionally charged and difficult moments in many people’s lives. Helping them through this process gives Mr. Hundal a sense of satisfaction.

Mr. Hundal also sees a lot of abuses in the overall system, notably in family law.

“I see wrong decisions being made every day,” he said. “As an attorney, I feel that I have a duty to help people through these injustices as much as I can.”

If there is one characteristic that defines Mr. Hundal, it is his persistence. He does not give up easily and welcomes challenges. Family law is full of challenges, and he goes to great lengths to assist his clients.

“I don’t think of my job as a 9-to-5,” he said. “I often think about my clients and their cases on my drives, during the gym, almost anywhere I go. This is the persistence that is needed to go above and beyond for my clients. I don’t settle until every avenue has been explored.”

Family law, and its penumbra of issues, can be lengthy and complex. The process requires significant attorney-client collaboration. Most importantly, Mr. Hundal’s ability to effectively represent clients depends on the timely receipt of information.

“Family law is fact-driven,” he said. “The more I know, and the sooner I know, the better I can help you.”

Mr. Hundal cautions clients to expect anything and everything during divorce.

“Family law is unpredictable,” he said. “I have had some of the most unusual things happen during the course of a case. But you need to know that this is normal, and it is OK. You will get through it. Expect a lot of negotiations.”

Mr. Hundal’s approach to family law is very amicable. This is in the best interests of both parties. He always tries to come to a reasonable and amicable resolution of any dispute.

“But with that, I understand that there are situations where the opposing party or their attorney are being overly adversarial, and in most cases, for no good reason,” he said. “I understand when it’s time to flip the switch and get into that mode, and you can be rest assured that I will fight for you.

“I am overly persistent, and my perfectionist qualities will go a long way in your case. Intelligently aggressive representation sums it up.”
