Law Offices of Maury Mills





Hello.  I am a sole practitioner with over a quarter of a century of experience primarily in the following areas:

Employment & Labor Law: Representing employees throughout Southern California in both Federal and State Court from San Luis Obispo to San Diego in wrongful termination, retaliation, discrimination and Labor Code violation matters.


I was plaintiff’s attorney in the landmark 1998 California Supreme Court case of City of Moorpark v. Superior Court (1998) 18 Cal. 4th 1143.

Family Law:   Representing both women and men in all areas of family law in Ventura, Santa Barbara and Los Angeles counties including:

Dissolution, property division, child custody/visitation, child & spousal support, grandparents rights, paternity and restraining orders as well as all other family law issues.

Guardianship and Conservatorship:  Representing both those seeking as well as opposing guardian-ships and both proposed Conservators and Conservatees in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties.

I have noticed recently that there are attorneys advertising that they will limit how much work they do on a case to save clients money.  Seems to me that is a recipe for disaster, just when you need the expertise of your attorney you find out that you have already used up the attorney's time.  Yes, I guess that would save you money, but at what "cost" as far as the results you get.  I have a different take on things.  Instead of limiting how much time I will spend on a case, I adjust my hourly rate so that folks who can't afford a huge retainer and $325.00 an hour for fees can still have representation for their entire case.  And then I will take a deposit and monthly payments for the discounted retainer.  That way when you most need an attorney, I will be there for you.  That's because my motivation in practicing law is to help people, not to get rich.  I've found that if you treat people right and do your job, everything else will take care of itself.
