Make An AppointmentAbout Matthew J. Jensen

“I hired Matt for a Prenup review. Matt got in touch with the other party’s attorney, reviewed the prenup, provided his interpretation and advised on what to do. Matt was very thorough in his work, always very quick to reply to email and very available. Matt also had reasonable rates. Would definitively recommend.”

We hope you never have to endure a divorce or a dispute about your child. If you do, however, and are in need of legal representation, you will find compassionate counsel and sound advice at the Law Office of Matthew J. Jensen.

Why Work With Me?

I get good results for my clients because I am pragmatic, skilled at keeping things out of the courtroom, and willing to fight for you.  I work with my clients so they can understand how the law applies to their situations and set realistic goals in their cases.  When property division and support issues are involved, I encourage my clients to think with dollars-and-cents and avoid emotional pitfalls in their decision-making.  I also like to think outside the box and love to collaborate with my clients.

Scope of Practice

I am based in Sunnyvale and serve families in Santa Clara County, San Mateo County, and Alameda County.
