Orange County Divorce Attorneys


Our family law attorneys, Gregory G. Brown and Michele M. Charbonneau have more than 60 years of combined experience practicing law in Southern California. As Partners at Brown & Charbonneau, Michele and Gregory guide individuals through the process of divorce throughout Southern California.
Both Michele and Gregory approach family law with a philosophy of achieving fair and reasonable outcomes, with a focus on prioritizing the best interests of any minor children involved in a family law dispute.
Because family law matters can be particularly emotional, and at times contentious, Gregory Brown and Michele Charbonneau both attended the Strauss Institute for Dispute Resolution, and received intensive mediation training, before becoming certified mediators in 2011.

If fair and reasonable resolutions cannot be reached, our attorneys are incredibly experienced in trials, with Gregory holding the designation of Certified Specialist in Civil Trial Advocacy (a distinction earned by approximately 150 lawyers in California).  Michele has been named a Top-Rated Lawyer™ in Family Law, by Martindale-Hubbell.
