Linda Anderson was admitted to the California State Bar in December 2013. She received her undergraduate degree in 2009 from Cornell University where she majored in Psychology with a minor in Law and Society. In 2013, she received her Juris Doctorate from Cornell University Law School with a concentration in Advocacy. While in law school, Ms. Anderson was the Managing Editor for Cornell’s Journal of Law and Public Policy.
Ms. Anderson developed her passion for family law early in her law school career while working in a family law clinic. There she worked hands-on with clients whom she had the opportunity to guide through the beginning stages of their divorce and custody cases. Following law school, Ms. Anderson worked for the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office, where she developed her trial and advocacy skills while serving as first chair on a number of trials. At the District Attorney’s Office, Ms. Anderson assisted on domestic violence cases, which inspired her to volunteer with the Bay Area Legal Aid’s Domestic Violence Restraining Order clinic. Having seen the emotional toll that family law matters and domestic violence cases can take on clients, Ms. Anderson’s primary goal is to provide her clients with superior representation in order to reduce their stress.
In her free time, Ms. Anderson enjoys reading, cooking, hiking, as well as spending time with family and friends.
