Attorney Profile

As the owner of the Law Offices of Vicki J. Greene, Ms. Greene provides dedicated legal representation to people living in Los Angeles and Orange counties, California. She focuses her practice on family law, handling complex and high net worth cases both at the trial level (before the Superior Court) and appeals (before the Court of Appeal).

For more than 37 years, Ms. Greene has provided representation to many high profile clients, including actor Alec Baldwin in his divorce from Kim Basinger (and she is repeatedly acknowledged in his book "A Promise to Ourselves") and actress Sarah Trigger in her divorce and subsequent custody and child support modification case with Jon Cryer, resulting in a published opinion (In re Marriage of Cryer (2011) 19 Cal.App.4th 1039). Ms. Greene also represented the former spouse of Ameriquest founder and Ambassador to the Netherlands, Roland Arnall. After Mrs. Arnall discovered her former husband was a billionaire and that she was not aware of the full nature and extent of their community holdings, Ms. Greene succeeded in bringing the case to trial, where it was settled on the third day of trial.  Ms. Greene also succeeded in getting the Court of Appeal to reverse a Los Angeles Superior Court decision that did not properly value or equally divide a marital estate primarily comprised of closely held shares of stock in The Capital Groups Companies, Inc. (In re Marriage of Armour/Ritter (2010) B190301/L.A.S.C. Case No. BD390510).  Ms. Greene has represented many other prominent and influential clients, including Adam Venit (WME Entertainment), John Eisendrath (television writer and producer), Jameson Parker ("Simon & Simon"), Ernie Isley (the Isley Bros.), Jack Ryan (former Senate running-mate against Barack Obama), William Grubman (Dream Street Foundation), and Doyle Bramhall II (blues musician).  

Ms. Greene uses the experience she has gained in these cases to help her understand how best to handle the complexities that can arise with high-profile and high-asset divorces. Her high legal standards and ethics have earned her the highest possible rating of AV Preeminent* from Martindale-Hubbell.

Ms. Greene earned her Bachelor of Arts in psychology, with a minor in math, from the University of California, Davis in 1975. Ms. Greene went on to attend the University of West Los Angeles School of Law which she completed in 2 1/2 years. She received her law degree and passed the California Bar in 1979.  Ms. Greene also is a recurring guest speaker in Family Law issues for The National Business Institute.

Ms. Greene has litigated (or settled) many complex estates and issues that involve the following matters: issues of child support, spousal support and child custody, asserting the rights of mothers and fathers, the ascertainment, valuation and division of complex estates, including closely held shares of company stock, real estate ventures, partnership interests, attorneys' fees and costs, professional practices, corporate interests, sealing issues, protective orders, mandatory disclosure compliance, separate property tracings, claims of reimbursement and prenuptial agreements.

*AV Preeminent and BV Distinguished are certification marks of Reed Elsevier Properties Inc., used in accordance with the Martindale-Hubbell certification procedures, standards and policies. Martindale-Hubbell is the facilitator of a peer review rating process. Ratings reflect the confidential opinions of members of the bar and the judiciary.
