Michael Brennan, Custody Attorney for Father's Rights, has served as Judge pro tempore in Family Law Courts - known for authoring the book "Custody For Fathers" - Serving Orange County.

Michael Brennan has been a family law attorney for 30 years.  He has extensive trial experience beginning with divorce, paternity, custody/visitation issues,  and has an excellent understanding of judges mediators & the judicial system. He has written articles on Fathers' Rights and spoken on the subject at Fathers' Rights Groups across the country. Mr. Brennan has also appeared on numerous radio shows and National TV.

No area of family law brings to the courtroom the tension, anxiety, hostility, volatility and raw emotion as child custody and visitation. Rare is the divorce, dissolution or custody determination in which the parties have been able to set aside personal differences to reach the goal of what is best for the children involved. Most often a judge will take great pains to get parents themselves to come to a mutually acceptable to all if the attempt has not been made in earnest.

The family court system has several layers of counseling, mediation and conciliation mechanisms in place in an effort to bring warring parents together for the purpose of resolving the issue of what it is in the best interest of their children.  

"Custody For Fathers" written by Michael Brennan, Attorney at Law, is the only book of its kind in print! A powerful 300 page "How-To" book for fathers going through a brutal custody battle. This book teaches fathers how to conduct themselves within the judicial arena through the art of words, actions & body language. A father is methodically moved through the courthouse, to familiarize himself with the elements of a custody trial. Each stop along the way the authors give directions on what to do & not to do, on how to act & not to act. Examples include always, always say "our" children, not "my" children & begin each complaint against mom with the word "I", I am concerned... or I worry that... "Custody For Fathers" addresses over 100 strategies & tactics other fathers have used to win custody of their children.
