This kind of overwhelming feedback and appreciation from our former clients gives our firm unrelenting drive and heartfelt purpose that brings us to work.

Making Each Transition Smooth & Civil

Attorney Lisa R. Zonder is devoted to making your divorce as seamless, amicable, and cost-effective as possible. While not everyone can avoid litigation, many of our clients are able to complete the divorce process outside of court, such as in cooperative cases that involve negotiation between the lawyers of both spouses.

Bringing more than 20 years of legal experience to the table, she has been trusted to handle all types of divorce-related matters, including celebrity, high-net worth, and other moderate-to-high-profile divorces. She has experience guiding physicians, engineers, and many other types of professionals through the divorce process

Our various areas of practice include:

  • Family law
  • Traditional courtroom litigation divorce
  • Collaborative divorce
  • Mediated divorce
  • Child custody
  • Uncontested paternity matters

Attorney Zonder has proudly served as an advocate and "peacemaker" for many divorcing couples in various communities throughout Los Angeles County and Ventura County. As a direct result of her hands-on experience, Attorney Zonder possesses a remarkably keen, comprehensive understanding of divorce and family law in the state of California.

Our firm is unique in that we handle many family law cases using a Team Mediation, or Enhanced Mediation, approach. In this approach, we strategically partner with certified public accountants (CPAs) and mental health professionals so that our clients can be supported on multiple levels—particularly pertaining to the legal, economic and emotional aspects of divorce.

Speak with Someone Who Knows Your Needs

Our lead attorney has gone through a divorce herself and completely understands both the legal and emotional challenges that come with this process. Divorce is life-changing in many ways—it affects a person's lifestyle, finances, experience of being a parent, and much more. In addition to that, it tends to be an emotional roller coaster for many individuals. Having an advocate at your side who truly understands what you are going through can only benefit you.

Our family lawyers are committed to helping our clients settle their cases with the highest level of efficiency. We do not want you or your family to waste precious time and money on litigation for divorce matters that can actually be handled outside the courtroom. Our legal team implements a variety of alternative methods for handling divorce. However, if your case does require litigation, we will aggressively protect your best interests in court. We can take the necessary time to inform you of your rights and help make difficult decisions much easier—bringing you peace of mind.

Life does go on after a divorce. As hard as it may seem right now, positive things can—and will—happen. Don't close your heart and mind to a new beginning. With the right guidance at your side, you can get through this difficult time. Choose Zonder Family Law today! We can be the supportive team that you need so that you don't have to go through this alone.

Devoted to Guiding the Local Community

Giving back to the community is a cornerstone of our legal practice as well as our personal lives. Attorney Zonder is particularly proud to be a volunteer attorney lecturer and educator at the nationally acclaimed "Second Saturday Divorce Workshops." Originally created by the Women's Institute for Financial Education (WIFE.org), the program is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing financial education for those going through a divorce.

Because we have seen Second Saturday benefit thousands of individuals and their families first-hand, we have since founded our own Ventura Chapter of "Second Saturday". This workshop can help couples work together and apart in their marriages in a much less expensive and traumatic way. Inspired by the original San Diego "Second Saturday Divorce, Mediation and Collaborative Workshop," our program features education and information on the legal, financial, and emotional aspects of the process, with a primary focus on mediation and collaborative divorce. We hold monthly workshops in Westlake Village.

A portion of all profits from Second Saturday go directly to WIFE.org.

Attorney Zonder also serves as the Chair of the Programming Committee for the statewide group, CP Cal, and the (former) Chair of the Certified Family Law Specialists. She also serves as a volunteer Settlement Conference Attorney / Mediator at the local courts in Ventura, Los Angeles, and Van Nuys.
