PRINCIPAL

Anamaria F. Rivero-Boundas

I’ve been a licensed attorney since 2010. My practice focuses on building and protecting families. My practice focuses on family law and adoption. I have a background in litigating contested cases, and have also served as a court-appointed guardian ad litem in both family law and guardianship cases. My background allows me to view your case from a comprehensive perspective to offer you well-rounded advice.

I am also trained in mediation and collaborative law, and am a member of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals. This means that I view your case from a holistic perspective, and try to find the best solution for you and your family.

In contested divorces and adoptions, I have the experience to represent you in court. My career began in litigation and I have personally handled all phases of litigation, including trials and appeals.

On a personal level, I understand both how divorce affects a family, and how important adoption is to building your family. I grew up in a blended family with stepparents and a half-sibling. Now, I am a stepparent myself. My goal is to help every divorce client through the process as smoothly as possible, and to help every adoption client successfully complete their adoption and build the family they desire.
