EL DORADO HILLS, Calif., Aug. 3, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Stockdale Law Firm, a well-known divorce and family law firm in El Dorado Hills, has announced it is transferring ownership at the end of August with the intent to carry on the success and trust it has built over the last 12 years.
Rebecca Esty-Burke will replace Myrlys L. Stockdale as the new managing attorney at Stockdale Law Firm Inc., which handles divorce, spousal support and custody disputes. Esty-Burke has worked in family law since 2003, most recently with the Law Offices of Fredrick S. Cohen in Sacramento.
"It's fortunate that the incoming managing attorney brings with her impressive experience and qualifications," Stockdale said. "She possesses a commitment to professionalism that will assure the continued delivery of excellent legal service to the firm's clients."
Having practiced law in nine local counties, Esty-Burke has been involved in successful custody cases and has litigated a complicated support trial that involved multiple periods for determinations of arrears, imputation of income and other complicating factors.
"The strength of this firm is remarkable. The attorneys here have more than 20 years of experience and I am looking forward to continuing the high-quality representation that the clients at Stockdale Law Firm have come to expect," Esty-Burke said.
Stockdale, who is moving on to the role of special assistant inspector general with the California Office of the Inspector General, first opened the doors of the El Dorado Hills firm in 2003. Since then, the firm has grown to include two other attorneys and several legal professional staff. The firm was the launch of Stockdale's third career - prior to becoming a divorce attorney, Stockdale worked as a newspaper reporter and a public affairs executive. She says the firm and its clients will always be dear to her.
"I have learned something new about life or law with every client and every case I've had over the years. I am most grateful for the opportunities I have had to touch so many lives with the work we have done," Stockdale said. "When I hung my shingle in 2003, I had no law office experience. Establishing this firm has been both very challenging and very rewarding."
