About Gould-Saltman Law Offices

Spanning more 38 years, the Gould-Saltman Law Offices staff uses ingenuity to guide and teach clients to face the other party and address the real world issues by improvising simple solutions to complex matters. We remove the "mystery" from family law, to reduce our clients' anxiety, and to let them make better-informed decisions. The knowledge to "make do" with what you have is how GSLO sets itself part. Our Lead Counsel is the "MacGyver Family Lawyer" because he's just plain cleverer than most.

Meet Richard Gould-Saltman

Richard Gould-Saltman is the founder of Gould-Saltman Law Offices and serves as Lead Counsel. With more than 35 years of practical experience in his arsenal, Richard is known as “The MacGyver Family Lawyer” for his ingenuity in the family law arena.  What sets Richard apart is his extensive family law research attorney background combined with his more than two decade tenure as a CFLS’s (Certified Family Law Specialist), one of 54 practicing law in Los Angeles. There are only a handful of lawyers with this combination of expertise and know-how. Richard has been a certified family law specialist since 1992 (State Bar of California, Board of Legal Specialization).  He graduated from the University of Southern California School of Law in 1978, and served as the Research Attorney for the Los Angeles County Superior Court Family Law Departments for two years.   He regularly lectures on family law issues to attorneys, mental health professionals, and certified public accountants.
