Garrison "Bud" Klueck

Attorney, Mediator, & Founding Partner

Board-Certified San Diego Family Specialist

Outstanding family law attorneys are often distinguished by their relentless commitment to their client’s well-being, their innovative solutions, and their ability to create mutually-beneficial agreements from complex, high-stress situations. For Garrison Klueck, his practice is founded on more than his understanding of the Family Code—it is founded on his compassion and his understanding of his client’s deepest needs and fears.

Sharpening His Legal Expertise

Because he is a Board-Certified Family Law Specialist, as granted by the California Board of Legal Specialization, Garrison is already a deeply knowledgeable lawyer. However, his knowledge of the law is not all that makes him a highly-renowned family law attorney. As the holder of three Master’s Degrees, including one in Counseling Psychology, Garrison is highly-trained in other disciplines that serve his clients. He has always been a passionate learner, and he applies the same ethic to his cases, where he gathers a wealth of information about his client’s situations in order to serve them better.

Garrison has also committed a significant portion of his career to sharpening his legal insight: he has taken hundreds of hours’ worth of courses in minor’s counsel, mediation, contempt, prevention of domestic violence, and other subjects that have served his clients. In addition, he has extensive experience in collaborative and cooperative law, and is credentialed by the National Dispute Resolution Center as a mediator.

Practice Areas:


Garrison Klueck graduated with his Juris Doctor from the University of San Diego in 1986, beginning his highly-renowned legal career. While studying law, he was the Executive Editor of the Law Review, where his article was published: “The Coming Jurisprudence of the Information Age.”

He also received the American Jurisprudence Award for being first in his class in Criminal Law, Contracts, and Community Property Law.

Garrison has additional formal education that most attorneys do not have. Before law school, he earned a Master’s Degree from San Diego State University in Communication. After establishing his legal career, Garrison decided to continue his formal education even further. As a Christian attorney, he studied at Southern California Seminary. In the seminary, he earned two Master’s Degrees, one in Counseling Psychology and the other in Religious Studies. The additional education informs Garrison’s practice of law on a daily basis and helps him continuously to serve his clients better.
