About Gina M. Famularo: “Integrity Matters”
As a young woman, Gina experienced the pain and uncertainty of a protracted custody battle over her first child. It was this experience that caused her to become a lawyer. Her daughter is now happily married and attending medical school. Gina married her second husband in 1992. They have a teenaged son together, who still lives at home.
Gina was licensed to practice law in the state of California in 1997. Since then, she has amassed vast legal knowledge and courtroom experience. Her practice has always been limited exclusively to family law. Over the years, she has learned to listen. She understands that every client who walks through her door is unique, but each one is in need of kindness, understanding and direction. Over the years, Gina has helped thousands of people just like you.
Gina is a child of God first, a wife, a mother, and an attorney- in that order. Her faith caused her to struggle with her profession, but after a conversation with her priest, she realized that it was her duty to be a beacon of light to those in pain. Since then, she has tried to guide each client through the darkness with her gentle skill. Gina takes the time to get to know her clients on a personal level. She listens to their problems and is passionate about helping them. Her expertise allows her to see things from a unique perspective. This makes her an excellent problem solver.
Gina is a “straight shooter.” She will always tell you the truth, even if it is not what you want to hear. She is trustworthy, agressive when necessary, but she is also compassionate. This is why Gina consistently receives the highest satisfaction ratings from her clients. She is rated as a “Superb Attorney” by AVVO, a “Top 10” attorney by Martindale Hubbell, and has a perfect five stars from Attorney Reach. Gina is also recognized as the top 1% of lawyers in the nation, winning the “Distinguished Counsel” Award by NADC two years in a row. She has been featured in Inland Empire Magazine as a top attorney in the area. Gina is a member of the local bar association, as well as a member of the Inns of Court.
