About Us

The Eureka, California, Law Offices of Delman W. Smith has devoted more than 40 years to providing invaluable legal support and representation to Californians and their children caught in the midst of family conflict.
Our firm’s commitment is to work tirelessly to protect the rights and best interests of our clients and their children. Whether through settlement negotiation, mediation or litigation, we seek the most cost-effective path to real solutions in family law disputes.

One of the keys to the success of our family law practice is our dedication to bringing our impressive experience and powerful mediation and litigation skills to bear in almost any family law issue, including:

  • Divorce and alimony as well as related matters such as legal separation, prenuptial agreements and restraining orders
  • Child custody matters including child support, visitation and modifications to parenting plans made necessary by relocation or other changing circumstances
  • Property division and the distribution of marital assets and liabilities, as well as the identification of misused or hidden assets

We have an extensive record of success in handling high-asset divorces economically and expeditiously. We have litigated literally hundreds of cases, many with marital assets ranging into the millions, yet we remain committed to providing dedicated advocacy and thoroughly respectful and individualized service to clients regardless of income level.
