Gerissa Conforti’s client-driven family law practice focuses on high-asset, complex matters concerning property division, child and spousal support, breaches of fiduciary duty and attorney’s fees.

In every matter, Ms. Conforti advocates for her clients’ best interests, but with particular sensitivity to their emotional needs, especially in matters where children are involved. She also has substantial background in criminal litigation covering state, federal, and juvenile courts spanning both criminal prosecution and defense.

An active community participant, Ms. Conforti worked with San Diego High School L.E.A.D.S. to establish a peer mediation group dedicated to resolving conflict among students, their peers and faculty. She is also active in the San Diego Family Law Bar Association and serves on the Board of Directors for California Western’s Alumni Association.
