About Us: One of Orange County’s Best Family Law Firms

The Irvine divorce and family lawyers at Seastrom Tuttle & Murphy have a reputation as first rate negotiators, and formidable litigators in Orange County family law matters. This reputation has been earned by developing winning legal strategies that achieve client results. Our lawyers regularly garner legal industry recognition from such names as US News & World Reports, The American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, Martindale Hubbell, and Super Lawyers Magazine.

A Dedication to Our Clients

The only thing more important to our lawyers than results, is our clients. Our objective is always the same–obtain the best result for our client, while providing exceptional client service and professionalism, at every step. To achieve this objective, our family and divorce lawyers limit the number of cases we accept at any one time, so that we may focus on quality client relationships with a select number of clients, as opposed to distant relationships with many. This allows us to provide the level of service and focus that makes our client relationships unique and earns us the ability to be considered one of Irvine and Orange County’s best family law firms.

A Focus on High Income Divorce

Residents of the OC know that many members of the community are professionals and other high salary earners. Five of Orange County’s cities are typically on the lists of the nation’s wealthiest cities, and many residents enjoy the lifestyle that their net income allows.

Our divorce attorneys understand the challenges associated with high net worth individuals, and are highly experienced in these divorce and family law cases. We understand your needs and will leave no stone unturned. If you choose us to handle your divorce, we want you to feel like you have Orange County’s best divorce attorney.
