Joseph A. Langlois is the owner of Langlois Family Law, APC. From the firm's office in Calabasas, California, he focuses his practice exclusively on family law, representing clients throughout Los Angeles and Ventura counties in complex and high-profile divorce cases and such related issues as property division, child custody and support, and spousal support.
