Patricia A. Hendrickson

Founding Partner
Huntington Beach, California

Patricia is recognized throughout Southern California as a true family law expert. She is a certified Family Law Specialist*, and is well-respected by her peers. She has an excellent reputation throughout the legal community and was a featured guest speaker on The Business Leader Spotlight Show. The show interviews business leaders who share their successful actions so they can help the audience gain insight into what other leaders are doing in their businesses.

By focusing solely on matters that fall under the umbrella of family law, she is able to keep abreast of the latest family law developments, and provide her clients with the best possible advice and service.

In Her Own Words:
"There is certainly no substitute for legal acumen and experience in the courtroom, but in many cases it is in everyone's best interests to reach a disposition of your case without going to court. And while our judges are very good at what they do, no one is more intimately aware of the facts of your case than you. As a result, having me working on your behalf with the other party can often produce a positive outcome, without ever having to step foot inside a courtroom."

Patricia enjoys spending time with her husband, two sons, daughter-in-law and incredible grandchildren. Additionally, she is an avid reader and traveler, and a self-proclaimed "dog person."
