About Steve Mitnick


I have lived in Ventura County and practiced family law for over 35 years. My philosophy is simply to focus on providing you with the best and most cost effective representation involving what is often the most important and possibly most traumatic time of your life. I bring a lifetime of experience, compassion, and common sense, to this task. I alone do all interviews, prepare all pleadings, and appear in court for you. After thousands of court appearances in all aspects of divorce practice exclusively in Ventura County, I have a comprehensive understanding of local judges and attorneys who practice in Ventura. This emphasis on one locality and one area of practice provides you with an advocate and counselor to help you effectively and competently address your problem. Whether it be divorce, child custody, paternity, property/debt division, support, modifications, guardianships, pre or post-nuptial agreements, or mediation and collaborative divorce I have experience to advise you in the most appropriate way to proceed.
