Robert (“Bobby”) Cashen is a partner at Morgan Tidalgo Sukhodrev & Azzolino LLP.  Mr. Cashen has been named a Super Lawyer’s Rising Star by Super Lawyers Magazine in both 2018 and 2019, an award conferred upon the top 2.5% of rising attorneys in California.   He currently serves as the co-chair of the Family Law Section of the San Mateo County Bar Association and will serve as its chair in 2020.

Mr. Cashen has exclusively practiced family law throughout his career.  He is a skilled advocate, assisting clients both as a consultant in mediation and settlement, as well as providing clients with vigorous representation in contested litigation cases at law and motion hearings and trials.

Mr. Cashen assists clients with all aspects of family law matters.  He is experienced with complex financial issues, such as business valuation and characterization, private equity, venture capital, and  equity compensation, and is adept at untangling these complicated matters in the context of family law cases.  These complex issues often have a large impact on child and spousal support, property division, separate property claims, and on claims for breaches of fiduciary duties.  Such matters often require the involvement of other professionals in the case, including forensic accountants, tax, corporate and estate planning counsel, and other financial experts.  In these cases, Mr. Cashen builds a team to provide clients with the best representation and counsel necessary to make informed decisions in both settlement and litigation settings.

Mr. Cashen brings a compassionate approach to child custody and visitation matters, an aspect of family law practice that can be most challenging for families.  He handles high and low conflict custody matters, move-away requests, cases involving parental alienation, and paternity actions.  These cases often require the involvement of mental health professionals to assist the parties and the Court in determining what courses of action are in a child’s best interests.  Mr. Cashen works closely with these mental health professionals and clients to ensure their families get through the difficulty of a dissolution with their children’s best interests as the highest priority.

Premarital and postmarital agreements have become commonplace in the family law realm and Mr. Cashen has experience both drafting these agreements, as well as challenging or defending them in enforcement proceedings.

Mr. Cashen graduated from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law. While in law school, Bobby received various awards for his writing and oral advocacy, including the second best oralist award at the National Criminal Procedure Moot Court Competition, the CALI Excellence for the Future Award and Witkin Award in Academic Excellence in Professional Responsibility.  He also served as a Teaching Assistant in both the first year Moot Court and second year Appellate Advocacy classes, and served on the Moot Court Board.  He continues to volunteer for the Moot Court program at Hastings.

Mr. Cashen is an avid golfer and skier and prefers to spend his free time with his family in the outdoors.
