Ann Wise - San Jose Divorce Lawyer Rebecca Hughes Tran - San Jose Divorce Lawyer

Founded in 2007, Tran & Wise, LLP is a San Jose law firm devoted solely to family law. In 2013, attorneys Ann Wise and Rebecca Tran partnered together to provide the highest quality legal service to family law clients in Santa Clara County. With more than 40 years combined practice as San Jose attorneys, Ann and Rebecca have the expertise to handle even the most complex family law matters. Both partners provide representation and consultation in contested divorces, and can also be hired as tors for clients who wish to work together toward settlement. Both partners specialize in complex property division and child and spousal support, and both are experienced in handling custody and visitation. Both have extensive experience resolving the complex economic issues that arise in valuation and characterization of closely held companies and professional practices. Both partners have represented the spouses and directors and vice presidents at Fortune 500 companies, partners and shareholders in various types of professional practices, and consultants and executive officers of private companies.

Regardless of the size or complexity of the case, the partners develop a strategy in every instance and are available to their clients. Their experience with the family law process and the San Jose courts allows efficient and decisive handling of a case, keeping costs to a minimum. The partners practice only in Santa Clara County, where they are familiar with the judges and attorneys. They approach a case with the goal of resolving issues without court involvement but, if a dispute cannot be resolved, they provide strong and effective representation in court.

As mediators, Rebecca or Ann will work with both parties to resolve the case without court. Mediation is usually the most cost-effective way to obtain a divorce. It allows parties to resolve the divorce, or certain issues relating to the marriage, in a non-adversarial setting. Mediation gives the parties the most control over the outcome of the divorce. The mediator educates both parties about the law, files all necessary papers, and helps the parties reach an agreement without court involvement.

The partners at Tran & Wise, as San Jose divorce lawyers, are familiar with the judges on the bench, and with the attorneys who act as private family law judges. In certain contested cases, the parties may decide to use a private judge. It is often possible to resolve a case more quickly using a private family law judge and details of the case can be kept more confidential. However, it is not the best choice for every case.

At Tran & Wise, the entire team is devoted to each client's family law case. Family law clients know that Ann or Rebecca will be the San Jose divorce lawyer working on the case and appearing for them in court as opposed to having an inexperienced divorce lawyer doing the work. The firm uses the latest technology and can handle even the most document-intensive cases effectively, reducing the cost of the case.
