Sonya Wickliffe joined Family Law Group, Inc. in September 2022. Sonya has practiced Family Law exclusively since 2008. She began her legal career as a Family Law Paralegal in 2001 and was admitted to the California State Bar in December 2008.

Sonya is experienced in all areas of family law including property characterization and division, business and other asset valuation, custody, move-aways, visitation, domestic violence, and child and spousal support. Although experienced in litigation, Sonya's practice is expanding to include Mediation and Collaborative Law. She strongly believes that parties going through divorce, or any family law matter, should have the opportunity of ownership over the process and outcome should they so choose.

Sonya has been active in the family law community. She was a prior co-chair of the Social Committee and prior member of the Judiciary Committee. She has also participated in volunteer activities, such as Lawyers in the Library, the Early Neutral Evaluation program, and the Personal Property/Arbitration program.

Sonya graduated from San Jose State University with her B.A. in English, Cum Laude, and later completed a Certificate in Paralegal Studies from DeAnza College. She graduated with her J.D. from Santa Clara University in 2008. Sonya earned all her degrees while raising two young children.

While in law school, Sonya was a student worker for the Workers' Rights Clinic at the Katherine and George Alexander Community Law Center. She first assessed possible claims in the Advice Clinic and later provided representation to clients under a supervising attorney. In addition to her clinical work during law school, Sonya competed in Moot Court, finishing as a quarterfinalist in both Honors Moot Court, and the Galloway Criminal Moot Court Competition. She also received the award for Best Appellant Brief in Advocacy.

Sonya works diligently to assist clients through the process, whether by litigation, settlement, or advising clients in mediation. Sonya is committed to providing understanding, professionalism, and effective representation to her clients.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
