A Southern California native, Robert A. Curtis grew up reading biographies of great leaders with remarkable courage and integrity, such as the Roman orator Cicero, Winston Churchill, Theodore Roosevelt, and others. Their examples of strong principles and leadership became engrained in his psyche and inspired him to become a leader as well. This led to his future as an attorney, prosecutor, founding member of his hometown’s city council, and as a mayor.
Mr. Curtis graduated from the University of Southern California cum laude in International Relations. He achieved his Juris Doctor from Loyola Law School. Since being licensed to practice law in California, he has achieved the top professional status of Certified Family Law Specialist, an achievement few attorneys in the state attain. Certification of being a Specialist is only done by the California State Bar after meeting exacting requirements, standards, and positive reviews from one’s peers.
Due to his highly competitive nature, critical thinking ability, and dedicated client advocacy, Mr. Curtis has become a skilled legal strategist when handling divorce and family law issues. His advanced legal knowledge and 40 years of practical experience gives him an advantage over the opposition and greater credibility with the courts. He can think on his feet, enjoys oral argument, and is especially skilled at cross-examination.
When dealing with clients, Mr. Curtis stresses compassion and communication for those in the midst of the personal and family trauma brought about by divorce, child custody, domestic violence, and other family law issues. He focuses on helping clients navigate these issues so as to emerge with stability and confidence for the future. He strives to help clients exercise good judgment and the best interests of their children in resolving disputes. He also has an excellent reputation for working with the opposing counsel and other side in helping to reach fair and just settlements that work for everyone. When this is not possible, he puts his outstanding trial lawyer skills to work in court.
Mr. Curtis handles all family issues as mentioned above as well as high income and high asset divorce, paternity, child support, spousal support, same-sex divorce, and other LGBTQ family issues. He can be reached 24/7 at Curtis Family Law as well as online through his contact form to arrange for a free consultation concerning any California family law matter.
