Gerald Tomassian, Partner

Fresno Attorney Gerald M. Tomassian offers thoughtful, diligent representation and legal services to clients in all matters related to divorce, child support, spousal support, child custody and visitation, real estate law, collaborative law, personal injury law, and workers’ compensation law. Gerald Tomassian has been practicing law in the state of California since 1988. He earned a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Southern California in 1984; he then received a J.D. in 1987 from the University of California’s Hastings College of Law. He was admitted to the California Bar the next year.


For more than two decades, Gerald Tomassian has practiced family law in Fresno County and adjacent counties in the central California region. Both the Fresno County Superior Court and the Madera County Superior Court have appointed Mr. Tomassian to act as a Judicial Administrator. For the past 12 years, he has also acted as a Judge Pro Tempore for the Family Law Department of the Fresno County Superior Court. In each of his roles, Mr. Tomassian has established a reputation for professionalism, fairness, and integrity.


Gerald Tomassian’s family law experience has convinced him that there should be a more dignified process – outside of the traditional court system – for divorcing spouses seeking to dissolve a marriage; he is an advocate of the relatively new and innovative Collaborative Law process and approach. After years of watching scores of husbands and wives hurt each other in traditional divorce proceedings – often with collateral emotional damage to their children – Mr. Tomassian co-founded the Collaborative Law Practice Group (CLPG) along with family law attorney Paul Pimentel. The CLPG offers divorcing spouses the opportunity to end their marriage with the proper dignity and respect that they and their children genuinely deserve.
