Attorney Profile

A senior associate at Antonyan Miranda, LLP, she provides representation to clients throughout San Diego County and its surrounding areas.

She also helps her clients on matters surrounding child custody and visitation as well as alimony and child support. While she is a forceful courtroom advocate when advisable, she will often help her clients reach an accord on some of these issues through negotiating a settlement agreement or by employing other alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation and collaborative law.

In addition to her matrimonial practice, Ms. Lopez helps clients obtain modifications to or the enforcement of existing parenting and support orders, and she works with victims of domestic violence who are seeking appropriate protective orders. Her other family law experience has included the preparation and review of prenuptial and post-marital agreements, international child abductions that are governed by the applicable Hague Convention, and stepparent adoptions.

Fluent in both English and Spanish, Ms. Lopez attended San Diego State University, where she majored in psychology and received a Bachelor of Arts in 2007. Her legal education came at the Thomas Jefferson School of Law, and she was awarded her Juris Doctor in 2011. Ms. Lopez serves as the chair of the Family Law Section of the San Diego County Bar Association.
