About Embry Family Law P.C.

Practicing Family Law & Bankruptcy in San Diego

Embry Family Law P.C. was formed in late 2018 by Ben E. Embry, CFLS. Ben is a Certified Family Law Specialist, certified by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization. Ben was previously the managing partner of Embry Dana Sattro, LLP, a full-service law firm. Realizing that a full-service firm could not service clients in a manner that clients deserve, Ben left Embry Dana Sattro, LLP and formed Embry Family Law P.C., where the only practice is family law and the focus is the client.

Our Core Values

At Embry Family Law P.C., we truly care for our clients. It is evident in the way we represent them and conduct our business. We put care into everything we do – it is a way of life at our firm.

It lives in our firm’s core values of:

  • Compassion: We know that our clients are going through a difficult time in their lives. They may be feeling hopeless, uncertain, and fearful, among other emotions. Trust us, we know. Although we may not have had the same issue arise in our lives, our life experiences have likely given rise to the same emotions. So: We know what you are going through.
  • Adaptability: Life throws us curveballs, and nothing is ever as easy as it seems. We get that. Take your issue – you probably never thought you would be here. We can adapt to the situation at hand and are never caught off guard.
  • Respect: This is twofold: First, we respect our clients. It might seem like this is obvious – attorneys should always respect their clients. Trust us, not all do – but that’s not who we are. We will go out of our way to show you that respect, never talking down to you and treating you by the “golden rule.” Second, we are respected among our peers and Judicial Officers. We value that respect and operate in a manner that continues down that path.
  • Experience: It is our promise to you, the client, that you will have a good experience with our firm. We will keep you reasonably informed of what is going on in your case by giving prompt updates; we will discuss your matter with you; and we will never make you feel as though you are just one of many clients. Clients are the life-blood of our practice and we strive to make sure your experience is so good that you will refer your family and friends who are in a similar situation. Also, it goes without saying, we are experienced.

Working for his father is what gave Ben the work ethic he has today. Despite the fact that farming was in his blood, Ben decided early on ...
