Walzer Melcher LLP is named a 2021 Band 1 Law Firm in California for Family Law by Chambers & Partners, an independent research company operating across 200 jurisdictions delivering detailed rankings and insight into the world’s leading lawyers.
For over 30 years, Chambers and Partners has been ranking law firms and individual lawyers in bands from 1 (highest) to 6 (lowest), and being ranked in any band is a significant achievement. The qualities on which rankings are assessed include: technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, commercial astuteness, diligence, commitment, and more
This prestigious legal ranking service has also bestowed high rankings on three of its partners in its 2021 High Net Worth Guide for Family Law in California. Celebrity divorce lawyer Peter M. Walzer (also known as a renowned international family law attorney and the godfather of prenups) received a Band 1 ranking; high net worth family law attorney Christopher C. Melcher with deep expertise in acting for very wealthy clients on family law issues received a Band 2 ranking; and top family law attorney Steven K. Yoda received a Band 3 ranking.
A market commentator says it is a firm of “terrific lawyers and advocates,” while a fellow matrimonial lawyer says: “They have a very strong presence in the community.”
“This is a great honor for the firm. We have worked hard to build a solid team that is second-to-none. We are proud of this recognition .”
