Attorney Profile

A partner at Moradi Saslaw, Michelle Steigerwald has focused her practice exclusively on family law matters since 2007. She provides compassionate and effective representation to clients throughout the Bay Area from her firm’s main office in San Francisco, and she has been admitted to practice in California since 1998. Ms. Steigerwald is additionally admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.

Ms. Steigerwald pursued her undergraduate education at Northern Arizona University, where she majored in psychology and earned a Bachelor of Arts in 1992. She subsequently enrolled at the Golden Gate University School of Law in San Francisco, and in 1998, she was awarded her Juris Doctor. Ms. Steigerwald then joined an area law firm where, for the next several years, she handled a variety of complex civil cases in court as well as through alternative dispute resolution methods. She then spent a year with an executive search firm before returning to private practice. Ms. Steigerwald has been with Moradi Saslaw since 2013.

A significant portion of Ms. Steigerwald’s current client base is comprised of people whose marriages have come to an end. She guides them through the processes of alimony, child support, parenting time, and the division of what are often complex business ownership interests and other types of marital assets. Ms. Steigerwald’s skills at the negotiating table often allow her to help her clients come to an accord without having to undergo a lengthy and divisive courtroom battle, but her litigation experience is utilized when talks have broken down and mediation sessions have proven to be unfruitful. Her other family law experience includes the preparation and review of prenuptial agreements and the obtaining of modifications to existing support and parenting court orders.
