Proactive Advice And Counsel For A Range Of Matters

Angelo is an energetic attorney offering knowledgeable legal services for family law, estate planning, revocable trusts, trust administration and probate. These areas of the law often overlap. Following a divorce, it is essential to update your estate plan, for example. This will ensure that your former spouse is no longer the personal representative named in your will or named as the agent for your power of attorney documents or the beneficiary of your life insurance policy. If you do not have an estate plan, now is the time to establish one, especially if you have children or own a business.

Angelo draws from his in-depth experience to protect your rights, whether you are facing a divorce or separation, dividing complicated marital property, establishing custody and support for your children or dealing with the death of a loved one. Because California courts lean toward seeking amicable solutions through negotiation and mediation, Angelo can also assist you in approaching a tough conflict with alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation.

Our Clients Say It Best

I highly recommend Angelo for any legal services because he is very dedicated to his clients. Angelo was one of three divorce lawyers that I had interviewed. He was very personable and helped me understand the divorce process in addition to keeping my legal costs down. He discussed the draft settlement with me and negotiated the final settlement to my satisfaction. He was also resourceful when we needed a QDRO specialist to deal with corporate retirement funds. I had so much confidence in Angelo’s skills that I also used his service for a Living Trust after the divorce.
-C. Taylor

I would like to express my gratitude with Angelo. He set the tone for what a great lawyer is supposed to be through his expertise and passion. By doing such an amazing job, he was able to help my son and I get through one of the toughest parts of our lives. I am confident in highly recommending Angelo as your lawyer.

My experience working with Mr. Lagorio was excellent. My attorney, Angelo Lagorio, gave my case all the time and attention needed to be successful in court. He made himself available whenever I had questions or needed assistance. During the complicated and lengthy court proceeding, he was a calming and confident presence both in and out of the courtroom. He fought hard for my rights as a father. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received throughout the entire court process. I will forever be grateful to him for all he has done for me over these years.

In April of 2020, Angelo Lagorio provided me with expert and compassionate care in the development of a living trust as I grieved the loss of my husband of 44 years.  It was an emotional time, one that required sensitivity and compassion.  Angelo provided that and more as he walked me through uncharted waters being a total fledgling to the estate planning and living trust process.  He was patient and answered the myriad of questions I had and made what could be a super complicated process, easy.  Having little to no experience with the creation of a living trust, I told him that I needed someone to “hold my hand” through the process.  He was responsive and caring, all of this occurring at the beginning of the pandemic, and he presented himself in a friendly and down-to-earth manner.  At that time, safe practices were still being developed and Angelo followed those practices diligently.  He was able to relate to my isolation due to my health issues as he had his own mother living with him for safety reasons.  He was always there for me whenever I reached out.  Angelo practices estate planning and living trust law with the utmost care and attention to detail and ethics.  He presented me with a leather bound final document, which speaks to his professionalism.  I invite you and encourage you to consider Angelo as your estate planning and living trust expert.
Forever grateful in Fremont,


I met Angelo after my attorney unexpectedly retired. I was referred by some great friends that were also going through divorces. It was a very stressful time. Communication with the other party’s attorney was shut down and negotiations were going nowhere. Angelo was able to quickly get the ball rolling. His vast knowledge and ability to clearly explain viable options helped me to make choices that comfortably fit with my personality, ethics, and total wellbeing. I love his straightforward style. I felt confident in his strong ability to get things done. In a process that has so many ups and downs, having Angelo as an attorney is an incredible asset. I have kept in touch with Angelo over the last 6 years and now regard him as a true friend and go to for any family law circumstances that arise.

-Michelle Andre

Angelo Lagorio represented me in court during a very difficult time of repeated custody and support hearings following a divorce. Knowing he was there to look out for my interests made all the difference.  He was professional and very responsive to phone calls and emails, never making me wait very long for answers.  When choosing an attorney,  it was important to me that my voice was heard and that whoever I retained could push back when needed without further destroying the co-parenting relationship I was trying to cultivate with my ex-husband.  Mr. Lagorio was able to maintain that balance.  After having represented myself through many stressful hearings prior to meeting Mr. Lagorio, I will always be grateful for the way he came alongside me allowing me to relax knowing that my case would be handled by a knowledgeable and hard-working attorney.

-Tammy A.

In 2016 I found myself in need of a divorce attorney. I had gone to a couple of places to have a free consultation and found myself disappointed with the lack of support from their offices. I did not feel that they were in this for my best interest.

When I walked into Mr. Lagorio’s office he made me feel at ease and wanted to here what I wanted to accomplish in this divorce. He listened to what I had to say and gave me a detailed account of what was going to happen.

My ex-husband was very stubborn and didn’t really comply with thing’s that needed to be returned in a timely manor. Mr Lagorio was able to handle all that he had thrown our way. I am very appreciative of all his hard work and diligence to get me the best possible outcome for my case.
I would highly recommend him for any of your legal needs. He is fair and will work to get the best outcome possible.
