The Benefits of Working with an Experienced Lawyer

With more than 30 years of experience on our side, we offer more than a shallow book learning of the law. Instead, we draw from the countless cases we have handled before and put that knowledge to work for you. You will get someone on your side who knows the local courts, knows the process, and isn't questioning themselves. We aren't drawing from something we saw someone else do - we provide our clients with firsthand, real life experience. When you work with our firm, you can rest easier knowing you have a heavyweight in your corner.

Our founding attorneys, Nelson Cutter and Matthew Lax, bring a unique blend of experiences to the table in every family law case we handle. For example, Attorney Nelson Cutter is a retired JAG who provides a unique perspective to military divorces. Attorney Matthew Lax is also proud to have become board certified by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization in family law.

Compassionate & Individualized Counsel

It is crucial that you work with an attorney who is not only effective and knowledgeable, but also compassionate to your plight. All too often, you can hear about law firms who run as "legal mills," taking on an exorbitant amount of cases and then just running them through the process. These firms often can only offer their clients detached and apathetic representation - giving them the bare minimum. When you are dealing with an area of the law that is this emotional, this volatile and this close to home, do you really want the bare minimum?

You don't deserve to be reduced to a case number. You need a divorce lawyer who provides personalized attention for your unique needs; our legal team at Cutter & Lax Attorneys at Law is prepared to offer you just that.

Our lawyers have built a local and national reputation for being creative, experienced, and a force to be reckoned with, both in and out of the courtroom. We have dedicated our careers to helping Southern California families. Just some of the feedback we have received from clients who have worked with us in the past include the following testimonials and reviews:

  • "Your patience, guidance and frequent counsel were worth more than I could quantify."
  • "Their professionalism is obvious by the results produced."
  • "You were always personally accessible and even came to my home on several occasions."
  • "Your assistance during this stressful event was exemplary and so very appreciated. "
