Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?

For more than a decade, we’ve been working in the family law field with firms owned by other lawyers. Not long after becoming certified family law specialists, we felt the time was right to launch our own practice.

How are you involved with both the community and your customer?

We both serve on non-profit boards (Neil with WEAVE and NorCal Boxer Rescue, and Matt with Wind Youth Services and Strive2Free), and do as much pro bono representation as we can. In May, we walked a mile in high heels to raise awareness and funding to combat domestic violence in our community at WEAVE’s Fifth Annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event. We didn’t mind the blisters. 

Why is your staff the best in the business?

Our staff is focused on one thing—delivering superior customer service and support for every single Forester Purcell client. 

Where do you and your family go locally to have fun?

Neil: Wine tasting in the foothills—who needs Napa?

Matt: Trains enamor my son, so the Folsom Zoo makes for a perfect afternoon.

What’s your favorite local business other than your own?

Neil: Aji Japanese Bistro

Matt: The Folsom Zoo

If you could be in any other profession, what would it be?

Neil: Since I love to cook, I’d likely be in the hospitality field—restaurants or hotels.

Matt: A high school history teacher  

What is your opinion of Style Magazine?

Neil: Eye-catching layout and great info on local goings-on 

Matt: Great snapshots of local eateries and events 

And finally, customer service is…?

Our brand of customer service involves bringing peace of mind to our clients, from the family room to the courtroom.

Do you know that our editorial is not paid for, nor can it be purchased? In fact, our Introducing and Dine reviews are not paid advertisements. If you’d like your business profiled, please email Megan Wiskus at Once we determine when your business will be featured, we will contact you to schedule a time to come out and take a photograph. Thank you!
