About Us

WE DELIVER UNMATCHED CLIENT SERVICE, EXPERTISE AND RESULTS IN FAMILY LAW MATTERS IN “THE 805” - AND BEYOND

Herring Law Group is uniquely structured and staffed toward providing our clients “concierge level” service. Our experience and commitment to the family law community are unmatched in Santa Barbara, Ventura and San Luis Obispo Counties. We boast five of the Central Coast’s most talented family law lawyers, a divorce coach and top staff in support. We take our profession seriously, and our clients enjoy the rewards.

Greg Herring is a veteran trial attorney of a wide variety of state and federal courts throughout California and other jurisdictions. He is a statewide leader in family law who was named the AAML Southern California Chapter’s “Family Law Person of the Year.” He is the region’s only Fellow of both the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (aaml.org) and the International Academy of Family Lawyers (iafl.com). His experience in, and commitment and service to, family law are unparalleled in “the 805.”

Greg’s extensive background in corporate litigation uniquely qualifies HLG to handle business and professional practice matters in the family law environment. He routinely guides complex valuation, goodwill, property characterization, shareholder rights, “family enterprise” and income disputes. His experience in custody, parenting and domestic violence litigation routinely includes hearings, trials and other work with the nation’s premier experts.

Ruston Imming joins Greg as a Certified Specialist in Family Law (certified by the State Bar’s Board of Legal Specialization). He is a seasoned force with a combination of intellect, common sense, drive and presence.

Clark Lammers Clark gained his experience practicing with pre-eminent family law lawyers in our region. He has a background in civil litigation, with an emphasis in family law. Greg knows from his own experience that that is a potent combination, providing HLG advantages over opposing counsel less familiar with the Code of Civil Procedure, the California Rules of Court, and the Evidence Code. Clark is a Santa Barbara native and second-generation local attorney.

Taylor Fuller is a Lompoc/Santa Barbara local. She worked for the Office of the District Attorney of San Luis Obispo County, then returned to Santa Barbara County for law school and family law practice.

Viktoria Morgan has over thirty years of legal experience, including an extensive foundation in civil litigation and family law. She brings a welcome level of experience, maturity, and perspective toward resolving our typically complex cases.

Executive Director, Erin Schaden, is a family law lawyer who is licensed in multiple states. She does not practice in California, but instead drives our elite client service, ensuring prompt, focused and caring interactions. Unique to HLG, Erin provides “divorce coaching” for our clients wishing a holistic approach. Erin is credentialed as a Certified Divorce Coach©.
