Cassandra Hearn, lead attorney
I am a zealous advocate for the rights of my clients. This means that I focus 100% of my attention on delivering the best possible result for the individual needs of each client.
I am a sharp litigator. I have a keen ethical sense, and I am not afraid to stand up and fight for the rights of my clients.
I worked at the San Diego City Attorney’s Office as a prosecutor where I regularly prosecuted misdemeanor and DUI offenses and made daily court appearances.In that time period I successfully compiled a winning record including fifteen full jury trials. My job as a prosecutor taught me how the system works from the inside. Now I use that knowledge to help my clients.
In addition to running a thriving litigation practice, I also spend time every week teaching trial skills as an adjunct professor at the Thomas Jefferson School of Law.
Law Degree: Suffolk University Law School, Boston, MA
I chose a litigation-focused university where I regularly competed against, and beat, Ivy League trial teams in litigation tournaments (including Harvard, Yale, Boston University, and more). My education also includes hands-on prosecution training with the Suffolk County DA's office.
I've helped countless clients ACHIEVE the best results. Here's what they've said:
ashley moffett, Associate Attorney
At the time I decided to attend law school, I knew I wanted to help people. I knew I wanted to give people access to a system that is terribly difficult to navigate without an advocate. When I began law school in 2012, I began to explore the areas of law that I felt I could make the greatest contribution and that is when I discovered my passion for family law.
Throughout college I volunteered at a domestic violence shelter working with victims and their children. In law school, I gained experience with the legal aspect of domestic violence working as a legal advocate for the domestic violence clinic of the YWCA San Diego explaining the court process and completing restraining orders. For me, hearing the stories of so many people who were in crisis solidified the importance of making sure victims are heard.
I have also had the opportunity to work with self-represented litigants in family law cases at the Office of the Family Law Facilitator in North County. This office assists family law litigants who are representing themselves by preparing required forms and explaining the legal process of divorce, child custody and visitation, and other common family law issues. It was during my experience here that I became aware that there are numerous people who find themselves deeply immersed in the court system, yet they are not equipped with the knowledge or resources to successfully maneuver it.
Today, as an Associate Attorney, I continuously fight and strategize for our clients. Through working with Ms. Hearn, I have learned that my natural ability to listen and empathize has enabled me to provide valuable assistance to our clients.
