Matthew K. Purcell, CFLS, is cofounder and shareholder of Forester Purcell Stowell PC, Sacramento. Matt was the youngest Certified Family Law Specialist in California at the time he received his certification from the State Bar. He has more than a decade of experience and has handled everything from intricate property and support issues to complex custody issues involving allegations of sexual and physical abuse, domestic violence, parental alienation, and relocations. Matt handles all aspects of dissolutions, but is particularly passionate about protecting the well-being of the children who are involved in these contentious adult situations. He has significant experience in the more specialized fields of guardianships, grandparent rights, and juvenile dependency cases, and is adept at counseling clients in situations where Child Protective Services removes children from parents based upon allegations of abuse and/or neglect.
