-- McManis Faulkner, a leading Northern California trial firm, has added attorney Jocelynn Maier to its Family Law Group as an associate.
“We were recently voted the Top Family Law Firm in Northern California by our peers for the third year in a row. In adding a high caliber attorney like Jocelynn, we have yet another resource for those we serve, and her diverse skills and trial experience further bolster our group,” said James McManis, head of the firm.
Maier joins the firm from The Law Offices of Kathryn Schlepphorst, where her practice focused on marital dissolution and child custody and visitation issues. She previously interned at the San Francisco Public Defender’s Office.
Maier is a member of the Santa Clara County Bar Association, for which she serves as the Family Law Section’s social committee vice-chair, and the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. She received her J.D. from Golden Gate University School of Law (2009) and her B.A., with distinction, in women’s studies from San Diego State University (2003).
