Adrian S. Doty, ESQ.

San Diego Divorce Mediator & Family Law Attorney

Adrian Doty is a Senior Associate Attorney at Sunnen Law. Mr. Doty began his legal career working as a civil litigation attorney in Los Angeles before moving to the Bay Area in 2014 where he gained complex civil and family law litigation experience working for one of the largest family law firms.

He has experience with a variety of complex Family Law matters, including mediation, complex and high-net-worth divorce, child custody and visitation disputes, move away requests, military-family law issues, and domestic violence restraining orders.

Mr. Doty understands how emotionally difficult family law matters can be, which is why he is dedicated to the efficient management of his client’s cases. While he always works to achieve settlements through negotiation when possible, he aggressively litigates to protect his clients’ interests when necessary.

In 2018, Mr. Doty relocated to San Diego, California with his wife and daughter and has practiced exclusively in Divorce and Family Law.  Mr. Doty received his Bachelor of Arts in 2008 from the University of California, Irvine (UCI) with a major in Criminology, Law & Society.
