AJ

Abraham J. Hart, Partner

The sad secret of family court is that not every dispute can be resolved by a judge. While AJ has been litigating family law matters for over a decade throughout the Bay Area, AJ’s practice and initial goals for his clients are to focus on risk management and creative solutions. AJ is particularly focused on assessing the long-term consequences of any settlement or litigation strategy. By knowledgeably projecting the likelihood of potential outcomes in order to adapt strategy and tactics, he can maximize our clients’ long-term benefits and future financial security.

There are always complex issues and multiple personalities involved in every case that makes that case unique. AJ is an experienced trial attorney, but he is also a Harvard-trained mediator. AJ is dedicated; by leverage, persuasion or law, he finds resolution for our clients. The end of a relationship is only the beginning of a divorce, and AJ guides our clients through the process with the goal of actual resolution.

AJ received his undergraduate degree in American Studies from the University of California at Berkeley, his Juris Doctorate from the University of Arizona Rogers College of Law and is certified as a mediator by the Harvard Law School Institute on Negotiation. AJ currently serves as a member of the Alameda County Bar Association’s Family Law Executive Committee and as a Settlement Referee for the Family Law Trial Department in Alameda County. Outside the office, AJ spends most of his time baking, reading, and running, and is a little obsessed with his Peloton bike.
