Attorney Profile

A principal attorney of Nachlis & Fink, David A. Fink works to guide families through difficult times of transition with compassion and respect. As a believer that most families can, with the right kind of help, settle their disagreements out of court, he works toward consensual dispute resolution using his 30 years of experience in family law. His services are often less time-consuming, less stressful and less expensive than taking a case all the way through litigation in family court. Mr. Fink serves families throughout the San Francisco Bay Area with meeting space in San Francisco, Oakland and Lafayette.

Mr. Fink often serves families as a neutral referee, arbitrator and temporary judge as families go through this difficult time. In the role of a neutral, Mr. Fink taps into a depth of wisdom that only comes from decades of practice and long experience working constructively with attorneys and experts. He promotes parties to stay in control of their situations by resolving and negotiating issues outside of court.

Although Mr. Fink no longer represents clients in litigation, he does serve clients as a consultant and as an advising attorney in collaborative law and other consensual dispute resolution processes. 

Mr. Fink was admitted to practice in the state of California in 1987, after earning a Juris Doctor earlier that year. Mr. Fink was certified by The State Bar of California as a family law specialist in 1993 and became a certified fellow by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) in 2000. Mr. Fink served as chair of The State Bar of California Family Law Section and as president of the Northern California Chapter of the AAML. Mr. Fink has also been selected for inclusion in the Northern California Super Lawyers list every year since its inception in 2004.
