About Us

Patricia Ruiz Calzada, Owner and Attorney

I obtained my Juris Doctor Degree from John F. Kennedy School of Law where I graduated with honors.  While in law school, I worked for a civil litigation attorney for 3 years as a paralegal, then as an associate. 


I currently work with victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and sex trafficking in collaboration with the Family Justice Center in Concord, California. 


My current practice is focused on Family Law. Throughout my career I have negotiated, settled and litigated divorce proceedings, child custody disputes, child support hearings, modifications, civil and domestic violence restraining orders, high conflict divorce and other related issues. 

Outside of work, I enjoy traveling, spending time with friends and family, as well as our family pets.
