Andrea L. Mersel
J.D., University of California, Berkeley School of Law, Associate Editor of the Berkeley Women’s Law Journal
B.S., Wharton School of Finance, University of Pennsylvania, magna cum laude
Andrea’s practice includes the full range of family law matters including dissolutions, paternity actions, post-dissolution modifications and domestic abuse. She has particular expertise in child custody proceedings due to her former work as Minor’s Counsel and in support/valuation matters due to her business school background and history of handling complex financial litigation requiring extensive forensic testimony.
Andrea is committed to providing solutions which meet each client’s individual objectives. She believes that the ability to easily reach and communicate with one’s family lawyer is vital to a beneficial outcome. Whenever prudent, she will attempt to negotiate and settle matters outside the courtroom, but is prepared to advocate if necessary. Her extensive litigation experience can and does serve as a significant advantage.
