Barbara A. Ginsberg
After working in-house for a large, multi-employer union pension plan and also spending several years as an associate at a small family law firm in the East Bay, Barbara A. Ginsberg opened her own office in Oakland in 1990. Although she originally intended to practice both family law and pension and retirement law, she soon found herself handling more and more pension and retirement related issues and fewer and fewer general family law cases. For a number of years she has specialized solely in pension and retirement law practice, primarily the division of retirement assets in the family law context, including the drafting of Qualified Domestic Relations Orders, as well as litigation in regards to contested retirement and pension law issues. She also represents retiree-claimants and beneficiaries in administrative hearings and litigation against retirement plans. More than 300 lawyers and mediators throughout California have referred their QDRO matters to Barbara Ginsberg and many of them use her services on a regular basis. She has presented a number of MCLE courses in or near the Bay Area. Judges have appointed her as the court’s Special Master or §730 expert on a number of occasions for the purpose of researching and providing her opinion on disputed retirement benefit issues and drafting the appropriate orders for submission to the court, and she has also testified as an expert on California law in regards to division of retirement benefits upon dissolution of marriage in courts in Missouri, Alaska, and Washington.
