Staci Lambright has been practicing family law for 15 years and has been a Certified Family Law Specialist since 2012. She is known for being responsive, direct and efficient. While Staci believes most cases should be settled without a trial, she is an experienced litigator. In 2017, Staci presented with Judge Thomas Trent Lewis, Supervising Family Law Judge of the Los Angeles County Superior Court, a 6-hour course for the Rutter Group’s California Family Law Report titled “Effective Strategies for Litigating Child Custody in Contested Domestic Violence Cases.”
In addition to litigation, Staci drafts premarital and postmarital agreements and consults with clients who participate in mediation. Staci has significant experience in complex dissolution issues including challenging / upholding prenuptial agreements, complex property division (RSUs, options, business evaluations), income imputation for support (earnings income, trust income, gifts / loans), undue influence/breach of fiduciary duty, domestic and international child custody jurisdiction, child abduction, relocation (“move-aways”), and prosecuting contempt.
In 2011, Staci was recognized by the Chinese Consulate of San Francisco and the California Legislature Assembly for her work on a high-profile international child abduction case. In 2013, Staci was named to the Northern California Super Lawyers Rising Stars List. In 2017, Staci was a recipient of the James P. Preovolos Award (San Francisco Bar Association).
