Family law encompasses all aspects of family relations. Family law includes adoption, child custody and visitation, children’s rights, child support, spousal support (alimony), separation agreements, divorce (dissolution of marriage), marital property division (equitable division), estate planning and trusts, insurance, cohabitation agreements, pre-marital (pre-nuptial) agreements, marriage and other legal issues that involve the family.
Consequences of Family Law:
Issues in family law can be very complicated. For example, divorce issues can be difficult to figure out because when there is no prenuptial agreement signed before the marriage, it can be difficult to figure out who gets the assets. Child custody can also be devastating and lead to a multitude of arguments and disputes. Child custody is the rights and responsibilities that one parent carries towards a child. This not only includes physically keeping a child, but also the obligations for the child’s wellbeing such as authority, religion, education and health care. At times, spouses settle child custody issues among themselves and out of court in a private agreement.
What a Family Law Lawyer can do for you:
A knowledgeable family lawyer can be helpful during a major life event or change. Consulting with a family lawyer can help families settle disputes in the case of divorces, child placements, spousal or child abuse, domestic violence or other major family law issues.

Serving as owner and Managing Partner of Marketing Holdings for over a decade, I have helped numerous clients establish effective and well-managed online marketing and advertising strategies. One key aspect of Internet marketing is search engine optimization (SEO), which allows businesses to drive web traffic through higher search engine rankings.
With many competitors in a limited market space vying for high Google rankings, the SEO process is complex and time-consuming. A coordinated SEO approach requires creating and continuously updating online keywords that will drive visitors to your site. These selected keywords should be industry relevant and inserted in your content in a natural and judicious way. Through strategic site linking and frequently updated online content, you can raise your company’s ranking in Google and Yahoo searches.
Keep in mind that SEO marketing is not an overnight process, but rather requires a complex understanding of the algorithms Google uses in selecting sites at the top of search engine rankings. To run an effective SEO campaign, be prepared to stick with your strategy for the long haul, partnering with a professional service that optimizes your approach through staying up-to-date on new techniques.

Q: What is the DAI Group?
Mr.Concha: DAI stands for Distressed Asset Investments. The DAI Group invests in distressed and otherwise undervalued real estate throughout California.
Q: What is a distressed asset?
Mr.Concha: Distressed assets have a depressed value due not to the conditions of the market, but rather to the issuer. For example, when an issuer defaults on loans for a commercial space, that space then becomes a distressed asset with a lower than average value.
Q: How does the DAI Group make money from distressed assets?
Mr. Concha: The employees at DAI represent a wealth of real estate, structured finance, and acquisitions experience. Capitalizing on our unique skills, we obtain distressed real estate at low prices and work within a network of highly specialized companies to keep costs to a minimum and return the property to the market.
Q: What makes DAI unique among other distressed asset investment firms?
Mr. Concha: Our tight-knit network of knowledgeable real estate and finance professionals permits us to handle the investment in-house for the entirety of its lifespan at DAI. This streamlined process saves a significant amount of time and expense. Through this efficient management and our attention to detail, an important asset to any investment firm, we maximize our returns on investments in ways that other firms are unable to do.
Q: What sort of property does DAI purchase?
Mr.Concha: The DAI Group invests in commercial and residential properties, including multi-family buildings, apartments, condominiums, and single-family homes. We also invest in debt values with significant intrinsic value.
Q: How does the DAI Group find its investments?
Mr.Concha: We maintain connections with several real estate agents and also have done deals with JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Citigroup, Bank of America, and Goldman Sachs, in addition to other banks. Through this agreement, we often buy distressed properties in bulk and at the court house steps.
Q: How does DAI value its investments?
Mr. Concha: The DAI Group conducts thorough property evaluations, which include a Uniform Residential Appraisal Report and a Broker Price Opinion. With this information, we ascertain the property’s current value and its potential value once repaired.
Q: What companies does DAI work with?
Mr.Concha: Among others, we enjoy partnerships with 360 Realty Solutions, Attorney Search Network, and Metro States Mortgage. I encourage anyone interested to learn more about these companies online.
As the owner and managing partner of Marketing Holdings, Camilo Concha possesses a unique understanding about leveraging the power of the Internet to propel businesses forward. In the course of his career, Mr. Concha has created and built multiple Internet-based businesses, and he shares his expertise with other companies seeking to do the same via Marketing Holdings.
Q: What types of services does Marketing Holdings offer its clients?
A: Our goal is to help our clients grow using Internet marketing techniques. Which strategies we deploy on our clients’ behalf depend largely on our analysis of business models, competition, and market elements.
Q: Can you describe some of the strategies you use?
A: One of the industry buzzwords you will hear quite a bit right now is search engine optimization, or SEO. Essentially, we help make our clients’ websites easily locatable by search engines. The best way to illustrate this is by example. Say that you are a personal injury lawyer in Los Angeles and you would like to show up on the first page of Google results when someone searches the terms “injury attorney Los Angeles.” We help you optimize elements of your web pages so that you show up in the first page or two as search engine users rarely look beyond the first few pages of results to find what they seek.
Q: Is SEO something companies can do for themselves?
A: Some do; however, search engines are always changing the algorithms that determine which sites rise to the top of their results. Marketing Holdings stays abreast of the latest SEO techniques. We also have a firm understanding of how people search the Internet, and we know which keywords they enter into searches. This knowledge helps our clients maximize their search engine results.
Owner and managing partner of Marketing Holdings, Camilo Concha, recently discussed how his company helps businesses harness the power of the Internet to increase their visibility.
Q: You provide search engine optimization (SEO) for companies, but are there other ways you can help them increase their Internet visibility?
A: Many of our clients glean great results from Pay Per Click advertising.
Q: Can you explain how Pay Per Click marketing works?
A: When you use a search engine, you get two or three different sets of results. Take a look at Google; if you are looking for a personal injury lawyer in Los Angeles, and you use “injury attorney Los Angeles” as your search terms, you will notice three listings in a colored square at the top of the page. These are paid listings. Under those listings, you will see the “organic” listings, which result from the keyword search. On the right, you will also notice ads. These are Google’s Pay Per Click marketing ads. Many other websites have similar programs.
Q: What benefits do Pay Per Click programs offer advertisers?
A: The ads are targeted to an audience searching specific keywords, so companies get their results in front of the people who already have an interest in the products or services they provide. Not only that, but as soon as the campaign goes live, qualified leads can find you. Perhaps best of all, Pay Per Click advertising only costs you money for people who click on your link. You do not have to pay for the people who see your link and pass on it. What this means for you is that when someone comes to your site, they have a strong interest in the product or service you offer. If you have an effective website, then there is a good chance you will have the opportunity to convert the advertising money you spent getting them there into a sale.
