Serving the Greater San Diego Area since 1993

When I opened The Law Office of Alexandra R. McIntosh in 1993, my aim was to serve the families and business of the greater San Diego, County, California area.
Our specialty is in providing tenacious legal services to those in need of family legal services (divorce, custody and father’s rights), business law, mediation services and personal injury representation for clients throughout La Jolla, Rancho Santa Fe, Olivenhein, Encinitas, Carlsbad, Oceanside, Escondido, Del Mar, El Cajon, San Marcos, Pacific Beach and San Diego.

Our philosophy is based around personal attention, efficiency, integrity and aggressive legal advocacy tailored to the specific needs of each individual client.
My Goal first and foremost is to achieve success, whether it be through sensible advice, skillful negotiations or direct advocacy.
​We take pride in our commitment to our clients’ needs and in our efforts to empower you while going through the difficulties associated with divorce and custody litigation. Whether you need a lawyer to inform you of your rights so you can reach a quick settlement in your case, or an attorney to forcefully fight for your rights, we will aggressively pursue your goals.
Among the differences you will find from many other law firms, here, you will be assigned a litigation team to ensure you always have an attorney available that is deeply involved and familiar with your case. It is also important to understand, although it may sound counter-intuitive, that this team approach reduces the costs of litigation.

About Us

our support staff

Our senior attorneys will spend their time representing you while our support staff helps handle tasks that do not require the experience of a senior attorney (e.g., putting bank statements in chronological order). We are here to respond to your needs and help you seek the outcome you want. We are also different in that we will never “sugar coat” the situation you are in. Too many lawyers tell people what they want to hear, but we are committed to telling you exactly the situation you are in because that is the only way you can make an informed decision about what is best for you and your family.If you are looking for knowledgeable, compassionate, and aggressive (when needed) attorneys to help you through a divorce and/or custody case, please contact us today.
