Growth-Oriented Move for JWB Family Law Enables Even Better Service

Uncategorized

We are pleased to share with you the relocation of our physical offices to a more comfortable and spacious area.

Our new location is at 1620 Fifth Avenue, Suite 600, San Diego, CA 92101. This new and better location is at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Cedar Street, near the California Western School of Law and the San Diego Freeway (Interstate 5).

“Our clients’ needs have grown, as well as our number of clients—and additional space in which to serve those needs became necessary,” says Jane Wesley Brooks, CFLS, leading legal counsel and founder of JWB Family Law. “At our new location on Fifth Avenue near the interstate, we are better suited to handle our clients’ divorce and family law issues more effectively.”

More space means increased privacy and confidentiality, which are both parts of our reputation we work hard to maintain.

Not only have we moved physical locations, but we have a new digital home as well. JWB Family Law is now located online at jwbfamilylaw.com. Brooks also has a new contact email at jane@jwbfamilylaw.com.

While our locations may have changed, our exclusive focus on providing quality and experienced divorce and family law services to families in San Diego County remains the same.

New Additions to JWB Family Law

Our clients’ success not only precipitated moves to a new location, but it also led to the addition of two members to our family law team.
