Archana Srivastava | SrivasLaw Family Law & Estate Planning


Firm Summary

Ms. Srivastava moved to the United States from India when she was a young child. Ms. Srivastava’s parents got divorced in the late early 1990s, where divorce was not heard of in South Asian culture. The divorce of Ms. Srivatava’s parents instilled in her the passion for family law, with her commitment to serve others and the best interest of their children. Being of South Asian descent, Ms. Srivastava understands the stigma that is placed on divorce in the Indian culture, and more specifically, how divorce affects the children. Therefore, Ms. Srivastava’s litigation style is centered on looking at the whole picture and getting the best results for her clients, which often times, does not just involve property division. Ms. Srivastava also places a great deal of emphasis on co-parenting and safeguarding the children in order to help families cope with the emotions of a divorce.

During law school, Ms. Srivastava interned with Bay Area Legal Aid where she helped represent domestic violence victims obtaining temporary restraining orders and child custody proceedings. After graduating law school, Ms. Srivastava interned for the Santa Clara Superior Court, where she worked at the Family Law Clinic in drafting and filing dissolution and child custody paperwork. Ms. Srivastava also spent several months clerking for a family law judge where she assisted with drafting statements of decisions and legal research in order for the judge to make an informed ruling. Prior to starting her own firm in 2018, Ms. Srivastava was an associate at various law firms where she handled exclusively family law cases.

Ms. Srivastava received her B.A. from The Pennsylvania State University and her J.D. from Widener University School of Law. While in law school, Ms. Srivastava was part of Law Review and the Moot Court Honor Society, where she held a Board position.
