About the Firm

The Law Office of Linda D. States is a full-service family law firm based in Sacramento. I was honored to be included in Sacramento Magazine's "Top Lawyers" list in 2015 and 2016.

Before opening my solo practice, I spent a decade working for one of Sacramento's premier law firms, representing clients in some of the most sophisticated and complex family law cases in Northern California, after working for the Family Law Facilitator's Office of the Sacramento Superior Court.

Being a divorced single parent to two children (now teens) and being a business owner both accentuate my understanding and compassion for my clients. All of this experience creates a unique blend of powerful legal representation with a genuinely caring touch.

My firm's cases usually involve one or more of the following issues:

  • Prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements or cohabitation agreements
  • Complex property division, including real property, business and retirement assets
  • Business protection and valuation in divorce
  • Income issues, such as income available for payment of support and underemployment
  • Child support and/or spousal support issues
  • Child custody and parenting/visitation plans
  • Judgment entry, set aside and enforcement

Full-Service Family Law and Full Commitment to Clients

I work hard to exceed client expectations, with family law services that are of the highest quality and are more communicative, responsive and flexible than is commonplace. Clients appreciate the partnership I form with my clients, who know I truly care about them and will fight for the best outcome. Having access to me by mobile phone/text is one small example of how I go above and beyond typical law firm service.

I offer a variety of service options, including consultation-basis, limited-scope and full representation, to meet most family law needs and budgets. Having the support of my outstanding paralegal Karen Nielsen Balch enhances my firm's cost-effectiveness and client convenience.
