About

Settlement-Minded Family Law

The Law Offices of Jennifer Owens has always followed the philosophy that a tailor-made settlement is the best way to resolve a family law case. We’re not a firm of “pit bull” attorneys, and we don’t believe that anyone “wins” a divorce. We believe that smart decision-making, open communication, and empathy are not only possible during divorce proceedings, they’re essential. We’ve spent enough time in court to know that divorcing couples are always better served by collaboration, not conflict. This is even more true with divorcing parents—we’ve seen the damage that a litigious divorce can do to children.

That is why we strive to create an environment in our practice that encourages both spouses to keep an eye on a better future for themselves and for their children. While we understand—of course!—that there will be times when litigation is necessary, we always focus on achieving the best possible outcome with the least amount of conflict. Every case may be unique, but our settlement-minded mission always remains the same: to achieve a resolution that works for the whole family.

Our Team

Jennifer Owens, Esq.

Jennifer Owens, Esq.

Since opening her practice in 2014, Jennifer has focused on family law. Though she has years of successful litigation and trial experience, Jennifer’s skill at resolving cases outside of court is what sets her apart. She is especially well known for crafting smart solutions to family law problems. With the principles of conflict resolution as her constant guide, Jennifer provides her clients with the education they need to make informed choices.

It has always been Jennifer’s goal to help her clients resolve issues cooperatively in order to minimize the anxiety and hardship associated with divorce. The vast majority of divorce cases settle outside of court. Though she can’t necessarily settle every case, Jennifer remains steadfastly committed to a settlement-minded approach in her family law practice.

Joseph Franzi, Esq.

For the entirety of his career, Joseph Franzi has dedicated his practice exclusively to family law. He focuses on finding ways to resolve matters without the need for prolonged litigation, while still ensuring that the priorities and goals of the client are achieved.

Joseph has spent countless hours in Orange County courtrooms aggressively advocating a client’s position on matters such as child custody, move-away cases, business valuation/cash flow analysis, and the establishment and modification of support orders.

He is a qualified Minor’s Counsel who has been appointed by the Court on numerous occasions to represent the best interests of minor children in family law matters—separate and apart from the influences of either parent. Joseph is well-versed in the many options for age-appropriate methods to communicate the child's wishes and best interests to the courts, while still maintaining sensitivity and shielding the child from the tensions and stress caused by a family law proceeding.

Joseph earned his Juris Doctorates from the Pepperdine School of Law in 2014, and was admitted to the California State Bar in 2014. Prior to attending Pepperdine, Joseph received his undergraduate degree from the University of California, Irvine in 2011.
