Rombro & Manley LLP founder, Roger Rombro, is passionate about family law. He not only brings over 40 years of experience in the legal profession, his own child custody battle early in his career inspired him to become one of the South Bay’s leading legal experts in divorce, child custody, child support, spousal support, property division and other critical areas of family law. Mr. Rombro understands how difficult and challenging divorce or child custody can be and has dedicated his career to helping clients move forward with their lives. He has earned the highest possible rating of “AV” from the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory, signifying preeminent legal ability and the highest standards of legal competence and professional ethics. Mr. Rombro has served as law clerk to the Honorable Stanley N. Barnes, Judge for the United States Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit. Prior to entering private practice, Mr. Rombro served in the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office, trying thousands of cases before the state and federal courts.

Mr. Rombro is a Certified Specialist in Family Law as certified by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization and is at times called upon to serve as a court-appointed mediator in Los Angeles Superior Court.
