Donal Casey Cummins

Donal Casey Cummins did his under-graduate studies at Gonzaga University and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration. After serving three years in the US Army, he returned to San Francisco and entered the University of San Francisco, School of Law. He graduated in 1970 with a Juris Doctor degree, passed the California State Bar Examination later that year and started practicing law in the Bay Area after forming The Law Offices Of Cummins & Holmes in 1971.

At the beginning of his career he worked in many disciplines of the law. As the years of practice rolled along, his practice has narrowed and focuses primarily on all aspects of Family Law. Because in many divorce cases there are a myriad of business interests involved he still maintains an expertise in both business and civil litigation and transactional matters.

Wills and Trusts are (or should be) an important part of family life for everyone today. Mr. Cummins has written hundreds of these testamentary documents over the years of his practice and continues to offer that service as well.

Mr. Cummins has also been a Judge Pro Tem in the Family Law Department of the Contra Costa County Superior Court. As a result, he is able to bring a unique perspective to the approach a particular case may require. He understands the issues from both the advocacy and judging points of view.

With over forty years in practice, Mr. Cummins has dealt with almost every situation involved in a case. His thorough knowledge of the issues and his empathy with clients helps relieve the pain and frustration that accompany any legal entanglement, especially those in divorce proceedings.

Mr. Cummins' San Ramon office is conveniently located for people living or working in Livermore, Pleasanton, Dublin, San Ramon, Danville, Diablo, and Alamo.
