July LPEP Spotlight: Partner Gina Policastri

Gina Policastri is a Family Law Specialist as certified by The State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization, and partner at Lonich Patton Ehrlich Policastri.

What do you like about practicing family law?

Family law is a dynamic and highly demanding area of law requiring not only vast legal knowledge, but a high degree of emotional intelligence.  I enjoy being able to offer both to my clients during the course of my representation.  The amount of trust that clients place in me during such an emotionally charged process is humbling, and I strive to get them through it with both compassion and understanding.

What strengths do you bring to the game?

My psychology background is particularly useful in understanding my clients and their needs, as well as in effectively assessing the motivations of the other side to develop a winning case strategy.  My calm and professional demeanor helps to diffuse emotionally charged situations and bring them to resolution without litigation. I also credit my amazingly talented team of associates, paralegals, law clerks and administrative staff for ensuring that my clients’ needs are always met and their cases are fully prepared for litigation when necessary.

Something about you?

I am a California native and have lived in Silicon Valley for 25 years.  When I’m not on my Peloton, you will find me with my family at home in Willow Glen or Truckee.
