During Mr. Prowse's career he has practiced in business and transactional work as well as jury trials, bench trials, and mediations. Currently his practice focuses on dispute resolution of all types, including divorce. He takes his clients' problems personally, and is determined to win for them.
Stan's first full time job as a lawyer was in Atlanta, Georgia, with what is now Alston & Bird, an international mega-firm. They were formative experiences, teaching him how to be a first class attorney and act professionally and aggressively at the same time.
His work as an attorney began in business and secured lending, primarily renegotiations (called "work outs") of real estate development loans gone sour in a falling economy. Next came litigation over what was then the country's largest bank failure, defending directors of the bank against the FDIC. That lead to general civil litigation, much of it involving real estate and construction, more bank defense work, business bankruptcy, and finally family law.
Following that, Stan became an "in house" attorney for a large publicly held home builder headquartered in Beverly Hills, handling disputes with the company's subcontractors and supervised some of the largest and best law firms in Los Angeles as they handled lawsuits against the company and conducted labor negotiations. From there it was back to the East Coast, making secured bank loans to businesses and doing something new, "private placements" of securities. Possessing a broad knowledge in many areas of the law is invaluable in attacking your problems successfully.
After opening his own law firm in Carlsbad, California as a sole practitioner, he returned to litigation in estate, construction, small business, and family law, as well as transactional work on those areas. Family law gradually grew to be the largest part of the practice, and Stan became a Certified Family Law Specialist in 2011.
As for Stan's personal history, he was born in New England, just outside Boston, Massachusetts. When Stan was a teenager, his family lived in a small town north of Scranton, Pennsylvania, in dairy farming country. After college graduation from Yale with a Bachelor's degree in modern European history, Stan worked in Washington as a summer intern at the State Department.
From there it was on to the School of International Affairs at Columbia University, then on to the graduate school. Stan earned his Master’s degree in history and finished his course work and reading for a Doctorate. At last he returned to New England and Harvard Law School, where he earned his Doctor degree and embarked on the legal career described.
"Since we opened our office our client base has grown to over 10,000. Many have become continuing clients and long time friends. Please stop by our office and say hello. “How can we help you?” is the first thing you’ll hear. We mean it." Stan Prowse
