Georgine Brave founded her law firm, Georgine Brave & Associates, on April 1, 1984. For close to 21 years, the caring lawyers and staff have provided superb service to their clients with regard to Family Law issues; divorce, mediation, support, post-judgment modifications, prenuptial agreements, custody, legal separation, move-away cases, and domestic partnerships.
Ms. Brave grew up in New York City and came to San Diego in 1980 to attend USD School of Law. The same week she started law school, her oldest son started college. When she started her own firm on April 1, 1984, she had a telephone, a few clients and an IBM Selectric typewriter! Now there are seven people on the team: Attorneys Julie Mack and Shawn Weber, Senior Paralegal Sharon Sceper, Junior Paralegal Melissa Zaragoza, Accounts Manager Karie Weber and Office Manager Elizabeth Brave. No more IBM Selectric!
Ms. Brave has been a volunteer with the American Cancer Society’s Reach to Recovery programs since 1994. This is a peer counseling program where women who are breast cancer survivor’s visit patients who have just had surgery and need reassurance, comfort and help.
Georgine Brave & Associates has provided free legal services to HIV+ patients through the San Diego Volunteer Lawyers Program. Ms. Brave volunteers as a Settlement Conference Judge for the Family Law Courts. She has been nominated three times for the San Diego Women Who Mean Business Award.
The Law Firm offers two trained Mediators, Attorneys Mack and Weber. Mr. Weber is also trained as a Collaborative Divorce attorney. These services are available for clients who prefer to avoid litigation. The firm offers free telephone consultations.
Through her twenty plus years of vigorous advocacy (she’s from New York and doesn’t like to lose!), Georgine Brave has earned the respect of her peers and the Courts and has a reputation as an ethical counsel, dedicated to her clients and committed to excellence.
