Attorney Profile

H. Yvonne Seeley is the founder of the Seeley Family Law Practice, APC, and she is a certified family law specialist by the State Bar of California's Board of Legal Specialization.  She provides legal services throughout the San Francisco Bay Area in family law matters such as marital dissolution or divorce, child custody, child support, premarital agreements, postnuptial agreements, spousal support and asset division. She also practices collaborative law and serves as a mediator.

Throughout her career of more than 30 years, Ms. Seeley has acted as lead attorney in jury and bench trials for other law firms. She is the author of several publications concerning family law and property division. She lectures on the topics of domestic violence.  Ms. Seeley received her Bachelor of Arts from San Jose State University in 1976, and then attended San Francisco Law School, graduating with a Juris Doctor in 1980. In 2001, Ms. Seeley completed her formal education with a Master of Science in Business from Notre Dame de Namur University.

Dividing marital property can be a complex process, especially if the couple has stock options, retirement plans, real estate and businesses. Ms. Seeley uses her knowledge and experience to help clients make sound decisions that will give them the ability to move forward with their lives. She also assists clients in determining what falls under separate and marital property status, and she engages the help of financial professionals to determine whether the current and future valuations of property are accurate and that the division is as equal as possible.

Involvement in the local and the legal community is important to Ms. Seeley. She has served in many positions over the years, such as president of the San Mateo County Trial Lawyers Association and board member for Community Overcoming Relationship Abuse, which helps victims of domestic violence in San Mateo County.
