"Ms. Backes is by far one of the most tenacious but caring, and experienced divorce and Family Law attorneys in the San Diego County."
-L. Smith, former client       

After spending three years going through her own "nasty divorce," which involved the distribution of a substantial estate and a contentious custody battle, Marie Backes vowed to make it better for others experiencing the traumatic financial and emotional devastation caused by the breakup of the family. It was that same overly litigated divorce that led her to change her "big ticket" civil litigation practice- with a focus in Erin Brockovich-style whistle-blower law - into an exclusive family law firm.

"I know how bad my clients are feeling because I've been there," says Backes. "I do everything possible to zealously represent them, to make things easier during their time of distress."

Her sharp negotiating skills gained Backes a reputation for settling cases.  She handles complex high conflict cases with uncanny talent and ease. She is said to be unstoppable in court and at the negotiating table. The firm focuses on every aspect of family law, including dissolution, division of assets, custody and visitation, child and spousal support, grandparent rights, modifications of existing custody and support orders, and  prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. Backes has been a San Diego attorney for over 23 years.
