He also has extensive experience in pension benefits, deferred compensation, stock options, and military divorce matters (Mr. Knowlton is a veteran of the California National Guard). Mr. Knowlton is tenacious, knowledgeable, and assertive. He is proud to bring his skills to the renowned trial talents of Navid Moshtael.

Client Review

My case involved some complexity with a definite power and financial imbalance because I was a stay at home mother. I was pleased to discover that his 30 plus years of experience and expertise as a family law attorney quickly leveled the playing field against the other side. I was able to trust Dan and know that he always had my children and my own best interest in mind. He is wonderful!! I highly recommend him!
